I just tried the 3.11.1 drivers yesterday (Fedore Core
2 with kernel 2.6.7-1.499.2.2, Radeon 9200SE, Xorg
6.7.0, mythtv-15.1, PVR-250). My TV out went from a
scattered image to actually showing X and the
mythfrontend ... but it was only a partial success; if
I try and watch mythtv recorded shows, I get the sound
and a blank screen on both my TV and monitor (the
monitor alone works with the Xorg vanilla radeon
But between mythtv.org documentation and the
atrpms.net site, the actual installing of mythtv and
mythdvd went pretty well.

That was going to be tonight's project, before I
finally give up and buy a VGA to S-video converter.
The GATOS mailing lists have promising things to say
about the tv-out functionality ported into the
ati.4.4.0 branch and tested on the radeon 9200SE
chips, and compiled against Xorg ... except
sourceforge is having a hardware outage on their CVS
pserver, and letter 'g' is one of the effected letters
If it works out, I'll post my results.
I did have a question, though:
Does anyone else use ATI, mythtv, and xine from
mythdvd to play DVDs? My mythtv install works well as
a PVR, playing live tv and recorded shows from my
PVR-250. xine will play DVDs fine in it's many modes.
But if I launch xine from my mythdvd screen, I get
the sound a blue box where the picture should be.
Has anybody else seen this?
