maybe you may give a try at installing ati-drivers from the kernel or downloading them and not use the ones that suse has included, when I did that on gentoo it asked me if I wanted to enable tv-output look there for the linux drivers

Install teh ati drivers as suggested, and also turn down the resolution + refresh rate (to 60Hz).
