[mythtv-users] ATI 9200SE and DVI->HDMI

I just bought a new JVC 56" HDTV with the intention of getting my
frontend up and running HD. I've got an ATI 9200SE with Svideo/DVI
outputs. I've had SD working fine with it for quite a while with the
S-video output, but I'm having issues with the DVI. Currently, I can
get a clear linux console displayed (overscanned a bit), but I can't get
X to start. I've used the EDID information reported by the TV as well
as several other Modelines I've found through searching online, but none
seems to work.
To make matters more interesting, I tried hooking my wife's Windows PC
(ATI Radeon 9800Pro) up through the DVI->HDMI cable, and the TV acts
like it's cycling through resolutions:
Blank->Black->Usable!->Blank...etc. It looks for all the world like
it's cycling through resolutions, trying to find one the monitor will
I hooked my Windows PC (NVIDIA 6800GT) up, and Windows started normally.
So, I'm left with a couple of questions:
Does anyone have an ATI 9200SE working through DVI->HDMI?
- - - If you do, can you send me a copy of your xorg.conf?
Is there a problem with ATI cards in general (with DVI->HDMI)?
Any help would be appreciated.
