Default TV-out on GeForce Go 7600

hail,

I have an Asus F3T Notebook, GeForce Go 7600 powered, and every try to make tv-out work has failed. Its a Vista Notebook, and even Vista can't output to tv. (The UI changed, and now its terrible as the UI thinks I'm idiot and I cant find where to say Dualview/Twinview is present and I'd like to have it allways on, LCD/TV).

My hope was to make ubuntu output to TV, but nothing seems to help. Up to now, I cant even make it blink the TV !

Is it broke ? I think I read somewhere that there is no Vista support for that (but when I installed XP there the TV-out didnt work as well). Ubuntu is also like this ?

# Option "TwinView" "1"
# Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
# Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31-50"
# Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
# Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,800x600"
# Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
# Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0,TV-0"

# Option "TwinView"
# Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
# Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
# Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x
480;"
# Option "TVStandard" "NTSC"

# Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0,TV"

these are two tries, was my config wrong ?

is there a tools one could click and had it working? if not, why not ? it is so cool when things just works and I really think Linux is mature enough at least for this ...

thanks

noone ??

at least with the same issue ?
I'd like to have my tvout alive again

is there any way to get support from nvidia itself, as they did this, they should be the ones to blame and make it happen

Are you sure it is no hardware defect?
I mean it does not work on Vista, it does not work on XP, now it does not work on Linux, I would start thinking there is a pattern...
Has it ever worked, and how?

hm, its what i fear the most.

this notebook is new, not a month old (two days to it). My friend read about there is no vista support for the tvout, but vga-out works fine.

it never worked, as earlier tries used the old toshiba also nvidia powered, Windows XP thought. Linux worked also, but i dont have the xorg.conf (i may look again).

what I look for here is to hear from others that also have this card, if its me or not. the Damn UI is not helping, as there is just autodiscover, not as the classic view where you can say what is and what to use.

All i'd like now is just give it back to the dealer when I'm 100% sure its hardware.

thanks,

matheus
