Angry TV-out config in X.Org, Intel 82852/82855GM/GME


I've been chipping away at this for some time, but I'm hoping the team here can offer some fresh insight. Specs:

Toshiba Satelllite A30
OS: Mandrake 10.1 Official (with some mods for KDE 3.4)
Kernel: 2.6.11
Intel Extreme Graphics - card name 82852/82855 GM/GME according to Windows
Television: Brand X! Bought out of ASDA (Walmart UK).
Connection to TV: S-VHS out -> inline S-VHS-Composite converter -> SCART input

Success so far: I can use my TV-out button to redirect output to the TV before X starts, but the resolution is wrong. Playing videos (XVid) works in Kaffeine, but attempting fullscreen causes a terminal freeze (have to do hard poweroff).

Once in KDE, I can't switch between screens at all.

During boot, the resolution on the TV seems higher than on my laptop LCD. The laptop screen is 1024x768, so the TV picture at this stage looks like about 1/3 bigger than this (i.e. the console boot messages only occupy about 3/4 of the screen).

When KDE loads, it's the opposite - my desktop area is bigger than the screen, so I have to scroll around it with my mouse.

Is this something to do with, or a problem with whatever drivers are being used? I'm really stumped with this...
