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

Same problem here, my Freevo now is headless
Also a Geforce 4 MX 440, with 8762 .. Screen just goes black, and switching back to console makes it run all over the screen out of sync (but ok on the CRT I attached to get this debugged). Without UseDisplayDevice everything works on the CRT...

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Device         "NVIDIA Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440]"
    Monitor        "Generic Monitor"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "NoLogo" "on"
    Option         "RenderAccel" "1"
    Option         "TVOutFormat" "Composite"
    Option         "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
    Option         "UseDisplayDevice" "TV-0"
    Option         "ConnectedMonitor" "TV-0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Also it seems to be all good according to the logs...
