Default Re: TV-out ceased to work in 8756 release

I have the same problem. I have a PC that I connected to a TV , and I use it to run Freevo; it has no monitor, so the TV output is fundamental.

I am running Debian/testing, and in particular
kernel 2.6.16-2-k7
xserver-xorg 7.0.22

My card is nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440] (rev a3)

in xorg.conf I have
Section "Device"
Identifier "nvidia TV"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "CursorShadow" "on"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "TVOutFormat" "Composite"
Option "MetaModes" "800x600,800x600;720x576,720x576;640x480,640x4 80"

If I install the legacy versions (and currently I am using 7182,
but previous versions were OK as well) I get TV output.

I tried to install 8762 , but when I start X, the TV goes black. If I stop X, the console comes back fine.


ps: I am installing the Debian provided package
and I used "module-assistant" to build the kernel module
