I also have a Latitude X1 and want to connect it to a TV so I can watch DVDs and stuff on a bigger screen, I have a VGA to Composite / S-Video converter so i can plug it into the TV, but the software will not let me select 800x600x50hz output, the lowest is 60hz, I have used a desktop at this resolution before to output to a television, through this adapter. There is also no option to say the output device is a TV, I have tried telling the device manager to install a TV for the driver on the secondary monitor but this makes no difference. From what I have read on the Intel site the chipset is perfectly capable of performing this function. (see http://www.intel.com/technology/itj/2005/volume09issue01/art03_hiperf_graphics/p05_tvout.htm).
It is a cool laptop and it would be nice to be able to watch DVD and play games on the big screen when I am round my friends' house without having to buy some sort of VGA to TV converter.
