I've been trying to get my dxr3 and dvd playback up for days now. I got this far that overlay is working very well, but i'm having trouble with my tv-out. I fixed manny things reading on these forums like dvd support in xine, firewall support etc but i seem to get a little stuck on this one
* I just upgraded from mdk9.0 to mdk10.1 and saw that my dxr3 device was available in mandrake control center (i had once been messing with it on mdk9 but eventually it didnt work straight away and since i still had my laptop i let it be and used that one) so now i wanted to setup dvd-playback
* my s-vhs entrance to my tv is broken so i connect to scart which has s-vhs entrance.
* i got two cables for that purpose: one is a one-piece-cable(svhs 2 scart) other is two pieces(one svhs-svhs one scart"head") If i use the one-piece-cable i got smooth playback on my tv but in black and white
, when i use the second i have a green screen. Since my portable running windows also gets black-white image with the first cable i'm ditching it. The second cable however gives perfect playback in windows (using a different video card), in linux its all green (using dxr3)
* I tried all possible options for the configuration of the modules. I tried this like this:
modprobe adv717x pixelport_16bit=0 pixelport_other_pal=1 swap_redblue_pal=0
modprobe em8300 dicom_control=0 dicom_fix=0 dicom_other_pal=1
I change pixelport_16bit, pixelport_other_pal, dicom_control, dicom_fix and dicom_other_pal in various combinations: always a green screen and issuing em8300setup after each combination --> the tvscreen flickers and turns green again
-> is this good enough to test the different options? or do i need to try a movie each time?
There are also configuration options available for the device in mandrake control center maybe the overwrite the options i set with modprobe? I dont know how they work... i sincerly hope i dont need a reboot to test each option :s cus i'm not sure how they are used and when they are loaded.
I also changed my /etc/modules.conf but that does not seem do do any good either.
Please give me some hints on how to test this properly... or tell me what i'm doing wrong or should try, any help is grately appreciated!
