Looking for an application that does "Detect Displays" automatically at boot?

Hi there!

I'm having some troubles with my current display setup, let's not go into that, there is an "easy" solution to this. Everytime i boot i have to click Detect Displays, to get the picture on the right screen, what i am looking for is something that "autostarts", a program, a terminal command or anything that does the Detect Displays automatically?

I have tried binding a keyboard shortcut to Detect Displays, it says the shortcut is what i bound it to, but nothing happens when i press it? :S

I think you can do this with Applescript. I found this page that has a sample script. Just save the Applescript as an app and put it in your startup items.
