    Default TV out won't work - Catalyst Control Center v1.8

    I can't get my TV out to work correctly. I am running a x1600 mobility. There is no option to force detect a TV. Do I need to upgrade my CCC somehow? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried to manually edit the xorg file with no luck.

    Have you tried the aticonfig tool from the terminal?

    Code:
    sudo aticonfig --query-monitor
    will tell you what outputs your card has available and what devices it recognizes. "lvds" is your laptop's internal display, "crt1" is the external RGB monitor port (it will be "tdms1" if the external port is DVI) and "tv" for the SVHS or composite TV-out.

    Code:
    sudo aticonfig --enable-monitor=lvds,tv
    should do the trick to enabling the TV as well as your laptop's internal display. If not,

    Code:
    sudo aticonfig --force-monitor=lvds,tv
    ought to do it.
