ati, directfb, and tv-out problem
I'm trying to make a tv box, with the interface being a webpage hosted on the box itself. I have taken the path of using Links in graphics mode, using DirectFB as the driver (after many painful attempts with the standard framebuffer).
I can verify that graphics mode is working on a proper monitor, even though 2 ATI cards I have tried have either a slight or a major problem but I am well aware of the ATI framebuffer issues. On a geforce it works fine.
When I plug the geforce in to the tv though, the refresh rate is wrong so all I get is the usual diagonal lines and such. It happened in all resolutions/colour modes except 1024x768 - which just didn't show anything at all. So I'm really looking for 2 solutions....
Is there an easy way to get proper framebuffer support for ATI cards (or is it just a waiting game)?
Is it possible to change the refresh rate of directfb in certain video modes, or can it be specified using the "-mode" tag in Links?
Thanks for any help in advance!
