Hi,

I appear to be having problems with tv-out as well on
an MSI FX5700 card. Since I'm a fairly new Linux user,
I'm not sure how I can contribute other than by sending
information similar to what Michael sent via issue
#1046576.

I'm running with the closed source nvidia drivers.
When switching to tv the symptoms are as described in
1.8 in the FAQ:

When switching back to the monitor, I see 'waves'
on the screen,
or only half of the screen.

The reason for this effect is probably that the
newer cards (like
GeForce3 or GeForce4) use some additional registers
that are not
programmed correctly. If anybody finds out what
these registers
are, please send me an email (I don't have any
of those cards, I cannot
test it.)

Here's the info I was able to gather:
