Hi Julian,

I have installed xrandr 1.3.x but do not see how to use this with the
external VGA TV; my laptop uses 1024x600 and the TV has 1920x1080
resolution; when I connect the TV before starting X11/KDE both screens
show the same picture with 800x600 resolution; can you please give an
example how to use 1920x1080 on the TV? Thanks
