Default Re: tv-out support.... ??

> it's ok if it helps to run an app to restore the console..

Usually when a program or driver leaves the video card in an unwanted mode, i'm able to put it back by running a X server in the desired mode and sending it a sigkill (kill -9 <pid>) and then using chvt to switch to another console. This doesn't work in this case, so i presume that the nvidia driver sets the card in some really f'ed up state when it tries to detect a tv device.
