X11 S-video out
 
3 Attachment(s)
hey guys.. my VGA card has a s-video out which I would like to use to connect to the TV but whenever I do 2 things happen.. my resolution drops to 1024x768 and I loose the other terminal screens (ctrl-alt-f1,f2,etc) and if I want to disconnect the S-video and restart gdm i loose the display completely... would appreciate your help

Code:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV610 video device [Radeon HD 2400 PRO]
also attached is my default xorg.conf and the log files with tv-out connection and without it..

i also read somewhere about running 2 different configurations between TwinView or 2 X-screens

sorry for the many questions.. appreciate your help

Well, what did you expect? It's a gogglebox signal, and the video card is primitive.

I doubt if you can configure that out - just live with it, or throw the tv and buy a monitor. For the price of last year's TV License I got a hdmi moniotor here and made way for it by junking the tv. Much beter picture.
