I'm using a open-source radeon supported card with an external monitor on my laptop. When I run a merged framebuffer setup I can see video playback on both screens fine but I just want to use the external. However, if I don't use mergedfb I only see a black window during video playback.
I'm sure I have had it working in the past, though on a diff monitor but I am certain that if mergedfb playback AND TV-out playback then this must be doable and I am doing something dumb!
My xorg.conf is here
, I've tried quite a lot of things but I am stumped atm.
