I have an asus tnt2 ultra and Im trying to get accelerated tv-out without X.
so far I have got vesa (standard unaccelerated mplayer output) working fine on the monitor and TV, and rivafb (accelerated nvidia framebuffer) working on the computer monitor.
However rivafb is very scrambled on my TV. I can just make out the picture but it is very distorted (crazy lines, as if my TV cant handle what I'm pumping into it).
I'm thinking I may need to edit /etc/fb.modes and tweak them around to something my tv can understand.
Please post your experience/suggestions/comments with rivafb and tv out. Thanks!
