TV-Out on Inspiron 8200 with ATI M9
- hello everybody,
did anyone manage to get the tv-out working with the ati radeon
mobility 9000 chip ? i tried the atitvout tool, but it didn't detect
anything. any hints are greatly appreciated !
- just in case anyone is interested and for the archive. the program
atitvout (using version 0.4) actually works with the ati mobility
9000. the trick is to switch to a lower resolution like 640x480,
800x600 and 1024x768 which is supported by the tv chip (using
ctrl-alt-+ or ctrl-alt--). you can use then
atitvout -f t (switch to tv out)
atitvout -f l (switch to lcd)
the downside is that overscan is not supported by this tool so that we
have small black borders and dualscreen doesn't work either. i've
tried to get information concerning this from the gatos author, but he
doesn't have any. i guess we'll have to live with that for a while.
