Description Don Alexander 2009-01-29 04:27:50 UTC
Created attachment 22348 [details]
generated xorg.conf with modifications. 

Unable to get the intel driver to detect an analogue TV connected via the SVideo connector via a composite splitter on a Acer TravelMate 290.

xrandr refuses to connect any pipes to it because of this, hence no display can be enabled on the TV. Only have a PAL TV to test this with atm, but assume NTSC is similarly affected. The man page is very thin on describing any options to do with analogue TV and the output will always be detected as TMDS.

Attached is the xorg.conf I am using.
