ATI Rage Fury Pro - TV (S-Video) Out
Ok, I have an ATI Rage Fury Pro. The card has 4 connectors on it. 1 VGA, 1 Svideo Out, 1 Composite In, and 1 Composite out. I am wondering if anyone knows how to use the VGA and either one of the outs at the same time. I want to be able to display the same thing on both screens. Basically just so that I can watch DVD's on my 27" TV instead of on my 19" PC monitor. And I want to be able to have them both at the same time so that I can control it, and get it started at the PC, then go sit on the couch and watch the movie.

I have been able to do this in Winbloze before, but since I have given up the blue screen life, I no longer have the option of dual booting to perform this function.

During boot up, if I have the Video Out plugged into the TV, I can see the the bootup process, all the way until I get to the Kernel loading options. I see the BIOS loading, LILO, and then it clicks and blanks out, and I can only use the regular monitor after that.

In Winsucks I could boot up, open up the display props and choose adavanced. Then I could "turn on" the TV display.

If anyone has any ideas for me to try, or has successfully done this, please let me know.

In the meantime, I will see if I can find a good pick of the card for ya.
