    Any idea how to get video out from HD4650 HDMI yet? I'm running into the same problem. Everything used to be warm and fuzzy with Fedora 10. After I upgraded to Fedora 11, I cannot get any video out of HDMI port with fglrx. If I use radeon, then it's ok.

    And for that matter, for an HTPC, the performance bottleneck will be the CPU anyways -- the media decoder implementation, what reason do you even have for not just using the onboard 3200?
    It's also going to do FretsOnFire, MAME, and a few other things.

    It's got a quad core Phenom, so the CPU's not going to bottleneck it.

    I'm a UNIX/Linux sysadmin. Digging around in internals doesn't bother me, but I don't need a "howto" for removing fglrx, either. I need HDMI working.

    Doesn't seem that way. If F10 works, maybe I'll just downgrade.

    ehmm.. stupid question but you are using the hdmi connector on the card, right? you don't try to get the output through the onboard connector...?

    Correct. As the original post notes, HDMI works fine on a VT or in the BIOS. X does not detect the monitor.
