Default PAL 720x576 mode...

Hi all,

a quick question: is it possible to setup a GeForce4 MX 4000 to use TV-Out at 720x576 (PAL)? If yes, how?

Looking at the forum archives, it seems that this GPU should be able to drive the tv output at 720x576, but I need old drivers (4363)? I tried the old drivers, but still no luck...
How should I configure x.org?

Not sure but I think HD576i instead of PAL might force to output at 720x576 or 768x576 which both are good PAL resolutions.

I tried
Option "TVStandard" "HD576i"
and now no mode is recognized as a valid tv mode: I see a lot of
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "..." (not a valid TV mode)
not even 800x600, that is recognized when I use the PAL tv standard.

I tried to add
Modes "720x576" "768x576"
in the Screen section, but those modes result to be unknown... I added the proper modelines for them, but the driver is saying that they are not valid TV modes...

How can I know which modes are valid TV modes?

Thanks, Luca
