Indulis 04 Sep 2006 NVIDIA TNT2 S-Video, Composite (using S-Video to composite converter) PAL(tested), NTSC(probably) PCI NO Nvidia proprietary driver 7184 Configure X wi use TV out and or nvtv tool Set lirc to start on boot: # chkconfig lirc on Example of a lircd.conf lircd.conf # brand: ATI Remote Wonder # model no. This should return a line with "lircd" in it besides the 'grep' line ps -ef | grep lircd 10. This is because these keys have a keycode higher than 255 and thus X cannot read them (see http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11227). https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/ATI_Proprietary_Driver
Change the permissions on the lirc socket: # chmod ugo+rwx /var/run/lirc/lircd 7. You should try to overscan just enough to remove the black borders without cutting off too much of the display. This will cause issues when trying to set an optimal resolution.
Be aware for hardware revisions with a strange 6-pin S-Video connector, your cables won't fit! Fixing the video In order to fix channel offset, poor color, I added the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf: options bttv card=64 tuner=2 It was /etc/modprobe.conf on my system (Arch Linux).

This page has been accessed 90,541 times. This also fixed my original issue with the channels being black and white and off by one. Add these lines to your /etc/modprobe.conf: alias char-major-61 lirc_atiusb alias lirc_dev lirc_atiusb 7. This driver loaded automatically on my box, but I removed lirc first.
I will try to report back if I find any details. https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/TV-Out_and_OpenGL_with_ATI_9000/9100_IGP Matrox Millennium 450GX AGP. Verify it is running. Save the example lircrc file below to /home/[user]/.lirc/mythtv 8.
For example, I have the ATI TV-Wonder (TV0) and the HD-5500 (TV1). Connectors HDMI digital DVI digital VGA analog If the basic TV configuration appears correctly, but the image does not fit exactly on your television set, you may need to adjust the When I've found a solution to this problem, I will post it here. -UltramaticOrange Because of colour issues and the availability of other cards in this price range I cannot recommend Card works great but TV-out is unsupported (not even an option) http://www.freshports.org/x11/sisctrl/, http://www.winischhofer.at/linuxsispart1.shtml DStulken 05:16, 31 May 2006 (UTC) Scan Converters In some cases, limitations prevent a dedicated graphics card from
This information now depends on the type of video card you have. EXECTV can be used instead of EXEC, this will however block the TV viewing when at the time of the call the first TV card is recording. Enabling overlays with tvout ATI proprietary drivers do have a bug in them which makes the combination of VideoOverlaying and TV-Out useless. If you press M inside LiveTV and get nothing, (no slider, and it just goes back to Live TV) check to make sure you have the OSD theme installed and selected
Configuration There are a couple of different overlays available when using an ATI radeon graphics card Video overlay xorg.conf: VideoOverlay VideoOverlay is for < R500 (HD1xxx or 690G) graphics cards. However when the TV-Out connector is used, you will see the top-half of the actual TV/DVD signal. MythTV allows you to adjust the size of its window to compensate for these factors.
This will currently (21/08/09) install an old version of the ATI drivers and ATI Catalyst Control Center. I don't know for sure, but it seems that the NVidia GF6200 might be good for this, as you can get one without a fan and HDTV output. Textured video xorg.conf: TexturedVideo TexturedVideo is for >= R500 graphics cards off, it is primarily for GPUs with the AVIVO display controller, because these don't have the older overlay Also needed we use NTSC base TV, thus it seems fairly obvious that a PAL tuner was not the correct tuner.
FAQs Nothing yet ... add the following line to the existing lines in this section ... SCART RGB Cable Some graphics cards are able to directly produce "RGB Sync" (Composite Sync) which is compatible with some TVs with SCART inputs. Newer Matrox cards can be run with a set of kernel patches (for kernel 2.4.19) and a customized X driver, but this arrangement does not support XVideo on TV-out.
You should see a module called "lirc_atiusb" this actually the module for the ATI USB Wonder remote 5. (fedora core 4). To change the settings run the MySQL client: > mysql -u root mythconverg Then at the prompt type: > update channel set contrast=18000,brightness=30000,colour=32000,hue=32768; Press Enter and then Ctrl-D to exit the However, MythTV will not. Specific cards: Savage 2000 AGP.
When no errors are reported, laod the new module with insmod ./genericv41.ko. Do that via the key settings in mythfrontend. Overall there is excellent support for the MythTV .21 and the ATI binary drivers. Also note that certain files/directories shown above are hidden by default and the "View Hidden Files" option must be enabled.
Please remember to check the paths to the current packages. Done! The output format varies by region, since different countries have different TV standards. Use the following as your /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc file: /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc # ~/.mythtv/lircrc # # MythTV native LIRC config file for # the ATI-Wonder Remote # using lirc_atiusb driver # begin prog = mythtv
