Well, looks like it just took a very long time to get going, mce-launcher was pegging the CPU at 100%, I got to one screen, tried to pick my resolution, and the only problem is that I can't force a 16x9 ratio with 720p, 1080i, or 480p. This could be because my TV is horribly cheap and not true HDTV, but I would still like to get the 16x9 ratio, if possible. Sorry for what seems like a play-by-play, it's exciting, and my patience didn't hold up long enough to really give this a go. I probably missed something about this in the instructions in my excitement.
I did have to do a bit of CTRL + ALT + F8 or F7 to get my screen up for some reason. Just in case others have a similar experience.
