You're the third to report this.  But since other people are getting
valid output at 1080i under DVI-D from an FX 5200 -- at least I think
they are -- I don't know what to think.

I got the double-vision on an RCA Scenium.  Another reported on a different
brand of TV.  What TV is yours?

I have asked in nvidia linux forums and other other places, nobody
has had an answer.

So let me confirm...

Are there a number of people here who are doing the following:

    a) Using an FX 2000 card under Linux (drivers 6111, 6629 etc.)
    b) Using DVI-Digital to output  (not DVI-analog)
    c) Going into an HDTV at 1080i resolution

And getting a nice clear signal?  I have seen it under Powerstrip on
windows, is this double-vision something most of us are seeing or few
of us?   Is it possibly an artifact of some chip shared by the brands of
TV that show it?

What about other cards with DVI, such as MX4000 and MX440 series?
What about higher end cards like FX5500 and more (though I don't really
want them because they have fans and are very expensive.)
