    Angry S-Video (TV) not detected


    Hi,
    I have a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Pro V2020
    Pentium M 725 / 1.6 GHz - Centrino
    RAM 768 MB
    Extreme Graphics 2
    15.1"TFT 1024 x 768 ( XGA )

    and xubuntu 9.10 detects the following
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)
    00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02)

    I try then to connect my TV (PAL)on the S-Video port, but the only display availabe is the on-board TFT.
    How can I use/activate my S-Video output?

    Tx

    With TV connected to S-video out & switched on go to

    System > Preferences > Screen Resolution > Detect Displays

    It should find TV

    I've already tried it, but with the TV on and the SVideo connected, it does not find any other Display than the TFT from the notebook.
    Any other idea?

    Re: S-Video (TV) not detected

    You might need to edit the following configuration file:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    This guy contains display information etc. which the Intel driver uses in turn. First make a backup for when things to ill:
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup
    then edit the file to your needs by issueing:
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Take a look at the following tread to learn how to add a TV display: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=9106&page=4, especially post #35 i think.

    After you changed the file, save it and close Gedit. Log out and back in to apply the changes.

    To restore the backup:
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    When there is no more display _at all_, you can always access a console by pressing the combination Ctrl-Alt-F1. The combination Ctrl-Alt-F7 brings you back to the "graphical world".

    Re: S-Video (TV) not detected

    I've just tried it, but it still does not work.
    When I execute xrandr I get the following:


    a1@LAPTOPUBUNTU:~$ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 2048 x 2048
    LVDS connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm

    640x350 85.1
    TMDS disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    a1@LAPTOPUBUNTU:~$

    And my Xorg.0.log has following Warnings:

    Re: S-Video (TV) not detected

    Did you put a 'TV' line in your xorg.conf ??
    Reading the xorg log it would appear you have not defined TV in xorg.conf
    You do not need TDMS 'man intel' says

    TMDS-1
    First DVI SDVO output

    TMDS-2
    Second DVI SDVO output

    SDVO and DVO TV outputs are not supported by the driver at this time.
    So TMDS will not work.
    Post your xorg.conf.
