I have a similar problem with my Nvidia ION box (Zotac board).

My TV is a 27" Samsung Slimfit CRT (4:3).

Older drivers seem to work fine (I think the 195 series was the last to work).

Have the new drivers been fixed for the regression?

Driver 260.19.29 seems to work WITHOUT the CustomEDID on my VPCS11C5E. Can anybody confirm this?

It is really great news, thanks to the developers who fixed it! The new version also seems to offer a noticeably better performance using gnome-shell, wonderful

Cheers,
Alessandro

The EDID detection issue has indeed been solved on my Vaio VPCS13V9E. The black VT screens bug is still present, however.

Are you sure? I also have a VPCS11C5E and it still doesn't work for me.
I can see the boot screen on the internal display, but as soon as X starts, the internal display turns off and the external display is enabled.

I created a bug report, but unfortunately I couldn't start X with loglevel 6, because I can't switch to another TTY. As soon as I press ALT+F1 the external display turns off and the internal just shows a black screen.

I disabled nouveau by booting with the grub option "nomodeset". Is this the proper way to disable nouveau or may this even be the reason it still doesn't work for me? If so, how am I supposed to make sure nouveau is not loaded?

Bug report attached...

You can blacklist the nouveau kernel driver by adding the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (This is on Debian, the exact location may vary depending on your distribution):

Code:
blacklist nouveau
