TV-out is not supported on 82852/855GM my Intel graphics card on Linux (specifically, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10). VGA and S-video both do not work even for simple cloning no matter how much is done to edit the xorg.conf. I would also like to point out that I have had several other problems with my graphics card that I feel should be addressed.
When booting my computer (it is a laptop), I have to boot in recovery mode and then resume normal boot. If I boot as normal, my monitor will not show the splash screen and will eventually begin acting really strange (it's a little different every time, but often there are lots of squiggly lines and the like). Several times the screen has slowly snowed over, which, strangely enough, was a problem I had on another laptop with completely different specs as well.
The one other problem I am having is much more minor than the others and it is simply that switching between virtual consoles and Ctrl+Alt+Backspace can be flaky, and I may have to restart the computer in order to see my main desktop again.
If it matters, I am using a Compal CY27 laptop, which seems to be a very obscure model, so I am having some trouble finding support. In any case, I want to be sure that something is being done to address this bug and that it's not going to go unfixed. I really don't want to go back to dual-boot with a bulky Windows partition sitting on my hard drive.
If this is going to Jin Gordon, I think I've already talked with you a bit about this, but nothing was ever conclusive, so I thought I would file a bug report to be certain something is being done about this.
Please don't mess up several issues into one - one bug, one issue. Let's focused on the bug title says - TV output doesn't work.
Please provide necessary information as requested in http://intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html.
We are not a tech support hotline, so we will try but I have to let you know that fix is not garanteed, given the HW is becoming legacy.

You have a good point that I should stay focused on one issue. I have no done much bug reporting in the past, so I apologize for not being precisely sure what to do. I guess it is most likely not possible that the issues are related anyway.
I'll try to make sure I give you all the information suggested in that link:
System architecture > i686
Kernel version > 2.6.27-8-generic
Not sure about xf86-video-intel/xserver/mesa/drm version...don't really no how to find that. All the other information has already been given or I'll try to attach it in a minute.
Created attachment 21558 [details]
xorg.conf, xorg.0.log, dmesg, xrandr --verbose
Some information that may be pertinent. I apologize if it's not given in the format that it usually is.
I highly suspect this is a dup with bug#12882. Let Zhenyu to confirm.
We won't do any work on DVO in future, the chance to fix is to check vender's data sheet and write it in driver, e.g chrontel 7009A.
