How to configure a Media Director to use ivtv-fb PAL TV-out?
« on: April 15, 2006, 11:15:11 pm »
I have installed on my hybrid dcerouter, and created a diskless mediadirector. This pc has a Hauppauge PVR-350 which has a nice tv-out.
I've installed the firmware and added "ivtv-fb" to the file /etc/modules and edited the XF86Config-4 plus installed the ivtvdev X framebuffer driver. No problem there.

But every time I reboot the mediadirector the config is adjusted: "ivtvdev" is replace by "vesa"
How to resolve this?
Tried to add a new video card template, because I guess this is caused by the setting "Standard Video Card", but got lost there...

Another related issue is how to rescale the Orbiter to the PAL resolution 720x576 with some offsets, because now 5% is off-screen and it doesn't look like the rescaling is working properly to a non-standard resolution?

Here the interesting part of my working XF86Config-4 file
