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

Heya, guys. I finally got this working with my MSI K8MGM2-FID mobo. Attached is my xorg.conf with my heavy experimental mods, and a build.sh I use to invoke the Nvidia installer with the proper parameters. As a bonus, here's the alias for my startx command, as my wife and I use the computer and switch between ctrl-alt-F7/F8 to login:

alias startx='ssh-agent startx -- :0 vt07 -dpi 80 -layout GamingLayout'

GamingLayout is what I use for playing Neverwinter Nights. MediaLayout is the standard one which allows for a full 1280x1024 desktop on my LCD screen and a second on our TV via the TV-Out.

Hope it helps someone.

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
vvvvvvvvv
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"
EndSection
^^^^^^^

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.

a.

ps: I am installing the Debian provided package
nvidia-glx-legacy_1.0.7182-1_i386.deb
and I used "module-assistant" to build the kernel module

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...

Code:
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"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
Also it seems to be all good according to the logs...
