http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi All, I've been scouring the internet for days trying to sort this out, with no luck. Hoping someone here has some insight. I'm running Jaunty on a relatively old system which has an ATI Radeon 7200 video card. The computer will be used exclusively with a TV, and I can't get seem to get the TV output to work. The entire boot process shows up on the TV, but as soon as X starts, it goes black (there's still a signal, it's just blank.) It's a completely fresh install, and I've tried a bunch of different things, from playing around with the xorg.conf file, to changing drivers, and found a promising solution here: http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Tvout Sadly, these instructions produced no results. While trying to build the driver, I'm running into multiple errors. Since the instructions were written for Edgy, I wasn't surprised. I'm not a complete Linux newbie, and I'm pretty comfortable with the terminal, but this is baffling me. I hope someone out there has dealt with a similar problem, and might be able to help me out a bit! (Hardware)
