Subject: [gentoo-user] Somewhat OT - Grandtech PC to TV component and X
Date: Wed, 29 Feb 2012 22:42:45
1 I recently bought a new Gradtec PC To TV component because my old Grand
2 Pro Ultimate XP that I bought in 2004 was on its last legs. We used the
3 Ultimate XP so that we could use the living room TV as a monitor, so
4 that we could watch MythTV in the living room. The Ultimate XP was
5 having a problem where after I logged into X the video would go all
6 screwy; it was all static-y and the top half of the video output would
7 appear at the top half of the screen and again at the bottom half. I
8 dragged a real monitor in there and attached it to the end of the
9 external monitor plug on the component and everything displayed normally
10 on the monitor, but still screwy on the TV. I bought a new component
11 and it's doing the same thing. But it only does it in X. This setup
12 worked fine until about a month ago. I'm completely at a loss as to how
13 to fix this. Here's my search for errors in /etc/Xorg.0.log:
16 carter log # grep EE Xorg.0.log
17 (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
18 [ 42.372] (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
21 Does anyone have any idea of what's going on? It only happens in X;
22 it's fine until X loads...
