Another TV-Out Not Working Post

Recommended Posts

I say another because I must have read a hundred others, all offering no help for my setup.

 

Asus A7N8X-X MB

Athlon XP

512 DDR Ram

160GB HD

80GB HD

DVD/CD-RW

Mandrake 2005 LE (10.2)

Kerenl 2.6.11-6mdk

Honestly can't tell which IVTV driver is loaded and functioning. i've gone from the 0.2 series to URPMI ivtv and URPMI dkms-ivtv and finally to the 0.3 series. Somewhere along the way, it found a way to work.

 

MythTV is up and running, allowing me to watch, record and play back TV, but when I try to fix my xorg.conf to allow TV-Out, I get no dice. Below is my working xorg.con and two versions that don't work. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
