How to get tvout working?
Ive followed the command at http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonTV but it still doesnt seem to work. Im using ubuntu 8.04 on a X800 AGP card, with a 20" LCD connected to DVI and svideo connected to a CRT TV.
xrandr seems to detect the tv, but how can I enable it? Im guessing the 0mmx0mm aint good.. :-)
Any ideas or help? Thanks
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 1680 x 1200
VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
S-video connected 800x600+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
800x600 59.9*+ 60.3
DVI-0 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 434mm x 270mm
1280x1024 75.0 59.9
1024x768 75.1 60.0
800x600 75.0 60.3
640x480 75.0 60.0
I don't think anyone has gotten tv-out working yet on R4xx cards like the X800. I think the gpio setup for the tv-dac toggling changed and no one has sorted it out yet.

Any way I can help with testing or dumps or anything?
Had my hopes high when I saw posted on the ubuntu forums that the opensource radeon drivers had tvout (i guess its been announced for a while, I guess I havent kept up).
