Default TV out not working (gentoo, 2.6.0, 5328)

Hi there,

Ive spent some time trying to get my "TV machine" to TV out to my SABA TV screen. I am using a Elsa Erazor X2 (GeForce1, 32MB VRam) and the latest nvidia drivers (5328 or something). Its a gentoo machine so everything is up2date (XFree and so on)

X starts without an error, but the screen stays black. I tried rebooting with only the TV plugged in (unplugged the CRT) but the screen stays BLACK all the time. Im from germany so PAL-G seemed suitable...

I tried to configure twinview, but the screen stays black with that config also. I never tried the TV out of the card on windows, so I cannot say whether the card is working, but I think so. I used a ATI card with windows 2000 before, and TV out worked, so its not a wiring (PC->SCART->TV) problem (duh!).

There are no errors what-so-ever in the log files (-- -logverbose 10 -verbose 10). I tried leaving the "TVStandard" option out, which should make your driver auto-detect it, but the screen just stays black :-(

Any help highly appreciated!

[EDIT]
This might not have become clear in the original version of the post: I NEVER get ANY output to the TV. Not during bios boot time, not during kernel boot time, not after X was started (and it starts successfully, just no picture!)
