Default 720x576 ?!

hi,

with the 6106 driver my custom mode for 720x576 is no longer accepted for TV Out - it worked with the previous one (5336). XFree86.log.0 tells me it's "Not a valid TV Mode" ... hell, it is !

this is of special interest for all people with DVB cards which have no hardware mpeg decoder - decoding the mpeg AND scaling it up to 800x600 and then letting it be re-downscaled to 720x576 by the chrontel/whatever is just wasting cpu/gpu cycles, with no benefit.

my card is a geforce II MX 200 with a chrontel 7007.

is there any known workaround to this 'uber intelligence' of the driver?

so long it's going to be 5336 for me again...
