[mythtv-users] X on tv-out pvr-350 Mandrake9.2

I've been trying for days to get X working over my tv-out. I have no idea
anymore what might be the problem. Hopefully there is some smart guy out
there who can help me out. The problem is that when I (re)boot, there is no
on the tv, just on the pc monitor.  When i play LiveTV the pictures appear
the tv and the pc blanks. When i press esc, the mythtv menu re-appears on
pc. Then, when I press ctrl-alt-Backspace there is some X output on both the
tv and the pc, but then the system hangs. My desire is to boot the pc and to
have X and LiveTV output on the tv. If there is also on the pc, that would
nice to have.

Maybe the problem has to do with fbdev. I can't find any fbdev.o on my
system. Also modprobe fbdev or modinfo fbdev has no result.
Is it required? I downloaded XFree86_FBDev-3.3.6-29mdk but that didn't help.

I have the following setup:
Compaq pressario 5831
Mandrake 9.2
Hauppauge pvr-350
