Heh, you know what, even though I am aware of that fact, I still like to do a reboot to make sure it works properly, a leftover of my windows days. Old habits die hard :p

Still, gotta love the old ctrl-alt-bksp when toying around with xorg.conf to get TV-out working. I'm still hoping for the day when ATI/Nvidia make their apps work as they should, giving me a proper TV-out with just a few simple clicks, as they do in XP. I won't go into detail about it, but their ways of altering xorg.conf do _not_ make for a happy computing experience.

And this is very off topic. Sorry.

RE[4]: Another myth - TV in for me

I've lost count of the howto's and different ATI and community drivers I've tried to get my Radion9600's tv tuner chip working with. My old ATI Radeon AIW took all the hastle of uncompressing the community module for X and rerunning startx to have awtv working as well as it can. No amount of hoops and circus ring leaders seems to get the 9600 AIW working for me.

I eventually found the correct solution though; hauppauge. ATI can bight my titanium @ until they release driver specs for the tuner chip and I see a module that actually works seamlessly as it should. With the development of an evolving GPU module, I may consider them for video out when it comes time to buy.
