Default TV-Out with 7676 (Geforce 3 Ti500)


I know for sure that at one moment in time I had this working, tv-out on Debian Sarge with the nVidia drivers (I was using XFree at that time).

I have been busy all day, trying to get my tv-out working again with the new drivers (I also tried the old driver 7167) and Xorg, but I can't get it to work. I have tried numerous tutorials, I've used my old XFree86 config as a reference, changed every option I could think of in my xorg.conf, but it just doesn't work. My screen stays completely black.

I know that tv-out is working in Windows (booted to Windows, haven't been there a long time, to check if nothing was wrong with the cables or ideo-card).

So, is there someone who is experiencing the same problems?? Or is there someone who got this thing to work using a Leadtek Geforce 3???

Here is a part of my current xorg.conf:
