ATI Radeon 9200SE + TV-Out. No Video Problem.


Hi.

I'm having problems with my newly bought ATI Radeon 9200 SE card that I'm trying to get working with Linux Fedora Core 3 w/ their latest kernel 2.6.10-1.770.FC3.

I have downloaded and installed the ATI drivers from ATI.

I'm able to run all my games and all things like that so the card is working and the 3D is running great.
The problem is that I'm trying to get it working with my TV with TV-out.
I can see my desktop on the TV, but when I start a video there are no video output on the TV, only on the CRT.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
I've tried to find anything about this on the forum and tried various settings for X that I've been able to find here on the forum, without any success.

fglrxinfo gives me
Code:
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9200SE DDR Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3.4893 (X4.3.0-8.10.19)

my xorg.conf are the following
Code:

I had the same problem on my 9800 Pro

What I did, as suggested by someone (can't remember who atm) on the forum gave me the tidbit to add Option OverlayOnCRTC2 "boolean" to the "Device" section, and now it works fine for me.

Give it a try

I added this to my xorg.conf file....
Option "OverlayOnCRT2" "on"

but it still does not work with showing video on the TV, only on the CRT.

PAL?

Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"

You may need to change this value to "NTSC"
