Lower My Refresh Rate

I have an Ubuntu box connected to my "tube" tv and have it set to display a cloned screen onto the tv. I have it working except that after about thirty seconds the right side of the screen starts to get a yellow tint that continues to darken until I stop the clone. It then fades back to normal at about the same rate. I think this is because the tv doesn't like the refresh rate but I could be wrong. I currently have the computer running at [email protected] mhz refresh. Anyone know the problem?

This may be because the tube in the TV isn't tolerant enough. Depending on where you are located a European TV is based around 50 refreshes a second whereas American TVs are 60 refreshes a second. A lower refresh rate may help and it's worth a try.
