I have the 15" SXGA (yours is maybe the 15.1 UXGA ?)
1. atitvout works so far in the console
a. 'atitvout -f t' switch to tv
b. 'atitvout -f l' switch back to LCD
Make sure you have the tv plugged in as the tv switch will shutdown the LCD
2. atitvout doesn't work in X at 1400x1050. So far it seems I have to lower the
resolution. However I wasn't able to make it work for any 800x600 I could
find. In XFree86-Video-Timings-HOWTO ESR lost me when calculating
the SH1 SH2 & SV2 params.
So: Is there anyone who have a valid 800x600 modeline for this thingie ?
