        What did you guys need to do to get it working (version of
kernel, XFree86; XF86Config options)?  I have a Radeon 7500 AGP card
and have not succeeded in getting TV out working yet.  I've tried the
GATOS drivers with the XFree86 4.2.0 that comes with RedHat 8.0 but
mythtv won't run on even the regular VGA display because it can't find
Xv support.  I've tried a recent CVS build of XFree86 but the GATOS
drivers aren't compatible with it.  I also tried the "atitvout"
program which apparently uses some BIOS calls to enable TV out but it
can't detect that the TV is connected.
