Default Re: 8400gs 180.51 TV-out

Finally, I managed to get things working 100%. The only thing I changed was that location of the "connected monitor" option from Device0 to Device1. Now the screen starts up every time after a reboot or a restart of X. Thanks a lot for all your help with this Mathog. I had been having problems with this for about a year and a half and it feels great to have things solved.

edit: Below is a copy of my xorg.conf in case it is a help to anyone having trouble.

Code:
