Default Re: HOW-TO enable video overlay with TV-OUT

When using twinview, XVideo is a bit crippled. Your videocard only supports video overlay on one output, in twinview that has problems. (no matter if you use clone, rightof or other combinations)

The only way to get overlay is to use the "seperate X screen approach" as described in Appendix R of the driver readme. The screen which you make "0" in the device section will have overlay support. Really clone is the worst way for watching video on a tv using linux.
