Thanks for the tip. I have upgraded from a fully functional dapper to feisty, and it is not able to give me Xorg output on the TV-out. I also have to do everything from console, but I haven't tried downloading the drivers from the Nvidia website. Will try that any minute now.

Previously this worked:

Option ConnectedMonitor "TV-identifier"
, where TV is the *type* of the monitor. So if you have both a CRT and a tv attached you would write "CRT, TV".
Option ConnectedMonitor "TV"
part now has changed to "
Option "TvOutFormat" "S-VIDEO"
. I had to do these changes to make Xorg stop complaining, but after all the complaints have disappeared I now only get a "FATAL: Module nvida not found"...
Option "TvOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
A lot of other programs might also be corrupted by the upgrade. Starting the command line bittorrent client ( gives me heaps of GZip errors
Will never trust the upgrade program again...
