Default Flickery Video FX5200

Hi

I have an Albatron Fx5200, 128MB card that I am running under Fedora Core 2 (custom 2.6.6 Kernel).

When I have TV out enabled, the video output (from mplayer and xine) tends to flicker during panning. If I only have output on the computer screen then it is fine.

Anybody got any hints on what I can tweak to avoid this problem?

Thanks
C

Default Re: Flickery Video FX5200

I had the same problem with my FX5600.
Do you have twinview or two separate X screens ??
The problem is that only the first device in the XF86Config-file have "hardware accelerated video overlay"
One device is your TV-out and on is the VGA-out.

I solved it by having the TV setup as primary device in the config file.
Watching a movie on the vga monitor is not as sensetive as the tv when it comes to "video overlay" at least thats my experience.

I post my XFConfig if you would like to try it.
I use a bash-script called "tv" to view movies on the tv that looks like this:

**************************START tv********************

#!/bin/bash
DISPLAY=:0.1 /usr/bin/xine -n --auto-play=fhq "$1"::"$2"

**************************END tv**********************


My XF86Config. whit monitor set to 1600x1200@85Hz
and TV to 720x572 (Pal):
