Installation issues / ATI Radeon 9600 TV-Out
« on: November 20, 2007, 04:31:05 pm »

I've got a Radeon 9600 card in my computer. I tried first to use S-Video (I don't really want to use this but it seemed to be the most easy choice).

I chose S-Video PAL-B in the AV-Wizard (also tried PAL-G). TV is just "noisy" (wrong refresh rate/resolution), tried a lot of different resolutions without luck. So it doesn't seem that any of the pre-defined resolutions work with my card. (Grub and the kubuntu load logo is the only thing that I get on my TV, it gets "noisy" as soon as X loads).

I had no luck at all...

Next plan, which I prefer, was to use my RGB->SCART cable that I've been using in my old installation with pure MythTV. That one produces video quality far better than S-Video.

I just copied my old xorg.conf into /etc/X11 on my LinuxMCE installation chmod'ed the file to r--r--r and rebooted the machine. LinuxMCE does sadly enough overwrite that file even though I've made it write protected. Is there any way to protect this file so I can use my custom setting that I know work.

I can't produce ANY output at all on my TV right now so the setup is pretty much useless; only sitting with a 17" monitor next to my big fat TV...

Would be happy for any help!

Linked? How's that?

Doesn't LinuxMCE talk to the database via a network socket using standard SQL statements?

Ahh, just remembered one more of my concerns regarding the initial post.

Will the Orbiter GUI be rescaled accordingly as well if I just change the xorg.conf.pluto file?

The widescreen resolution I want to use is 1024x576 (16:9 non HD), works perfect in my old MythTV setup, UI rescales fine and so on.

Will that happen automagically as well in LinuxMCE?

Thanks, i'll do that and maybe try to chmod 444 that file to prevent it from being overwritten ;o)

Is there any way to do this?

I already have a really heavy machine running as a MySQL server in my network at home, I also already have an Asterisk server running that is properly configured.

I would make perfect sense to use those instead of heavy that extra load running on my LinuxMCE core.

Have anyone done this before?

Main concern is to move MySQL. Is there a single point to change where LinuxMCE looks for the db or would I have to change 100 different config files?

I just read in some post that the resolutions available via the setup gui are the only ones available? Is there really no way to put in a mode line that you know works?

I have my TV connected via a RGB-SCART cable and none of the resolutions in LinuxMCE support that. I would hate not to use that cable since the image quality is FAAAR better than any composite or svideo cable.

Can I change the modelines in xorg.conf.pluto or will that one be overwritten? Can I add a modeline in any database table to have it available in the web gui?
