Drivers >= 256.x issues on 220GT
 
Hi, I have a fanless 220GT, and I have problems when changing to 60Hz, and some issues with vdpau:

Refresh rate change: Changing to 60Hz makes the TV go black with / without apps running in ubuntu 9.10 X Windows. Sound also goes completely dead until I reboot.

VDPAU: Sometimes white dots occurs when there's black and it won't remedy itself until I reboot / cold boot. Doesn't matter whether there's h264 or mpeg2.

Works perfectly on 195.36.31.

Tried with different X configs on:

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-256.29.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-256.35.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.29.run

Any help would be appriciated, cause I'd like to stay updated on drivers.

I can confirm this at least for 260 for me and at least 20 others. For yavdr and for one also on mythbuntu.

Ad0:

Try regenerating the xorg.conf with nvidia-xconfig and do not add anything to it manually. See if the issue persists that way.

Already done that. No workie. Sticking with old driver until it's fixed!

I am still having the same issues.

Still black screen on 60Hz with 270.41.06.

Still happening on 280.13!!!

UPDATE: Commenting out a bunch of old settings worked. * embarrassed*

It "worked" because I enabled dynamic twinview. But then 60Hz doesn't show anymore.
xrandr returns fine, but the screen goes black. Seems like it doesnt like 60hz on these new drivers... ?

UPDATE: ARGH My Denon receiver messed up the signal. :) Works now.

Re: Drivers >= 256.x issues on 220GT
 
Why is it that my Denon handled 195.36.31 fine, but not the newer ones?

Now I managed to get picture on 60 Hz when switching off conversion. But there is the some brightness somehow, and sound does not work when I change refresh rate to 60Hz. I have to reset the amp to get the sound. So there must be something radically different in the way the new drivers send HDMI signals.

I see myself forced to go back to 195.36.31.
