Matrox, tho some of VIA/S3's options are great too as they have fantastic XVMC support.

So finally, I went with nvidia again (6600GT). At least we get new drivers when required (new kernels, new X servers).

But I never use games and hate the highpower design. I would still like to find a wellsupported (in Linux) AGP videocard with DVI out and good mpeg playback performance (don't care about 3D).

Yes, I do get 1080i from my 6600GT.

I should say that my TV has DVI/VGA input so I use that to connect it to my card, not S-video or Component. So my computer does not see this as TV-OUT but as a normal monitor at 1920x1080 interlaced.

I can get 1920x1080i and 1280x720p on my AGP 6200 through both dvi->hdmi and component, but anything other than 480i causes the top, bottom, and sides to fall off the screen. I'm hoping the upcoming drivers fix it.

This is most likely happening in your TV, not in the drivers.

Would you mind I ask for your xorg.conf file? Please...

pe1chl,

What kind of Phillips tv do you have. And have you been able to run a twin view this way?

Do you need to do anything with the TV-out option?

ie. stuff like this?
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO" but Component ? ? ? ? ?
Option "TVOverScan" "0.5"
Option "RenderAccel" "1"

Thanks

I am not pe1chl, but I also have my TV hookup via DVI.

I don't need any of the Option "TV*" settings, just
Code:
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0"
The DFP is for Digital Flat Panel. Since the TV has DVI in, it is just acting like a 50-inch LCD flat screen monitor. No TV settings, but the modelines have to be correct.

I have also used this with TwinView with
Code:
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0" "DFP-0"

The model number is right in the example, so that should be clear.
I don't use twinview, but two separate X screens.
I don't use TV-OUT, the TV is connected via VGA.
