Default VT crash with tv-out

I posted this in another thread, but since this issue might be unique, I'll try to make a new one.

It is yet another framebuffer/VT crash situation, but I nailed it down a bit and it is perfectly reproducible.

Whenever the system needs to change to another VT, the machine crashes hard.

The funny thing is, that this only happen when the tv-out is actually connected to the TV. Having the cable in the graphics card, but unplugged from the TV doesn't reproduce the crash.
Whether or not the TV is on or off doesn't matter, it still crashes.

Motherboard: Asus A7V133-C
CPU: AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1333

Graphics Card: Asus V9280/TD
Chip: TI 4200 128 Mb
Tv encoder: Phillips 7104
BIOS version: 4.28.20.05

Kernel: Linux 2.4.20
Driver version: 1.0-4349


My Tv is connected using a Composite converter that ends ind a Scart jack. With my old gfx card I needed to select Composite output to make this work.

I tried setting it up on windows for testing the card. The default Asus and Nvidia drivers won't activate Tv-out, but when testing with Tv-tool it works perfectly. I guess this is because the default drivers won't let me select composite.

Testing tv-out on Linux is a bit hard because I can't shut down the machine properly or use a normal console, I have to turn off the power in order to try out a new X configuration.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to proceed? Is there any chance that another cable would produce different results, for instance one using S-Video? I suspect that some part of the card tries to get information from the TV, and that this fails in some way.

Just a small update.

I tried with 4363, with exactly the same problem. Drivers older than 4349 seems to work but they are very unstable.

I've just mailed to linux-bug : I've the same problem.

I can start the X Server, no errors in the logs, but when I wnat to switch to a VC or when I log out, I get a hard lock.

Default Re: VT crash with tv-out

I am having the same problem. I finally got this thing configured EXACTLY how I want it to act. When I have my laptop connected to a TV (SVIDEO), it is separate from what is on my laptop's LCD. The only way to launch apps on the TV is to specify DISPLAY=:0.1. It does do extensions/cloning, or anything wierd like that. When my laptop is not connected to the TV, it acts just like any other computer (the mouse is confined to the LCD screen only). My problem is that whenever I logout of Xorg, or switch to a virtual terminal - it hard locks.

Default Re: VT crash with tv-out

i'd like to add that I just tried removing framebuffer from the kernel completely and I still have the problem. I am currently using vesafb-tng.

If I comment out the Screen 1 in the serverlayout, everything works fine... I just don't have tv-out.

Nope, let's hope that the nVidia developers takes their time to fix this in the next release along with the black&white problem that has been issued alot.
