ATI tv-out with xorg7 [solved]

Hi everybody.

I have a problem with tv-out on my ATI card since upgrading to xorg7. When I connect the card to my tv I can see the desktop but when I try to play a movie I get just a blue screen where the video is supposed to be.

DRI and other things work fine. I have a Mobility Radeon 9700 using the 8.22.5 driver and fglrxinfo shows:

display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: MOBILITY RADEON 9700 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.5642 (8.22.5)

It is probably a VX thing but I have no idea how to solve this problem. Any ideas?

In your xorg.conf, make sure you have the following in your device section:

    Option "VideoOverlay"               "on"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay"              "off"

Re: ATI tv-out with xorg7 [solved]

Thanks for the tip, but the problem actually was that I did have those lines in my xorg.conf. When I deleted them it started working. smile

If someone else is having this problem in a similar configuration, here is the device section from my xorg.conf.

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "** ATI Radeon"
    Driver      "fglrx"
    BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"
    Option "NoTV" "no"
     Option "TVStandard"                 "PAL-D"
    Option "TVHSizeAdj"                 "4"     
    Option "TVVSizeAdj"                 "0"     
    Option "TVHPosAdj"                  "0"     
     Option "TVVPosAdj"                  "4"     
    Option "TVHStartAdj"                "2"     
    Option "TVColorAdj"                 "255"
