[mythtv-users] Getting rid of the console framebuffer in
rdsmith at pobox.com

Thanks, for the response.
But, that wasn't working for me until I got rid of the rhgb kernel option.
(Redhat graphical boot if you aren't familiar with Fedora)
For some reason it gets in the way and my 350 ends up on /dev/fb0 which the
console is obviously using. Removed it and added vga=792 now the console gets
/dev/fb0 and my 350 gets /dev/fb1.
Now, if I can just get X on the TV-out...
