The great pity about nvtv is that on a laptop it completely disables the laptop screen, and it requires a restart of the Xserver to get the laptop screen back.
I wish that there were more options in the driver to tweak these types of settings, I finally got the TV-out workign to my satisfaction, only to have a lack of fine control over the output on the television. Even simple brightness/contrast controls as in the Windows driver version.
A little list of things I would like to have:
variable overscan on the tv-out.
brightness/contrast controls on tv-out.
Anyone got any idea of the likelihood of these happening? Should the linux guys at Nvidia get in touch with the coders working on nvtv?
