[mythtv-users] Intel mac mini linux, tv-out problems

I am involved in getting a Mythtv box with the new intel mac mini. But, no
success in the connection to an analog TV with no dvi connector.

I have a dual boot system, with the standard Mac OSX + ubuntu edgy 6.10.

Using my TFT monitor with the DVI-to-VGA adapter everything works ok from
the standard configuration (i only had to recompile kernel to apply a patch
for getting apple remote working).

In order to connect to the analog TV, i have used the standar
dvi-to-(composite/s-video) apple adapter. When booting the macmini connected
to the TV, i can see in TV the menu of refit to choose macosx or linux. When
i select linux, the tv image goes off and nothing happens.

I am using xorg 7.1 (from the ubuntu repositories) and the latest git i810
driver. I have tried several modifications in xorg.conf but i am not an
expert in modelines, 915resolution and so on....

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
