*** tvtime requires hardware YUY2 overlay support from your video card
*** driver.

If someone has this tvtime working on X1250 please post either the aticonfig command that got you there or the xorg.conf file.

The file that causes troubles for us is /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.
The fact is that driver loads whatever options are recorded there and completely ignores your xorg.conf setup.
It can be solved(I mean in order your changes to be recorded at amdpcsdb) if you change an option at xorg.conf via aticonfig command line tool. For example:

aticonfig --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf --tls=1
I don't know yet about the other files' functions but we will see...
