I do.  You need a FX5200 card with a DVI-out port.  I use a DVI-to-HDMI
adapter and then an HDMI cable to my Panasonic plasma TV.  Works great.

Actually, I'm running 856x480.  I've experimented with 848x480.

Here is my modeline:      "856x480" 28.4 856 864 896 952 480 482 484 497

One thing that I have noticed, if I boot the system with the TV off using
the default xorg.conf option, Xorg would not detect the TV and give me a
default resolution of 800x600.  So I added:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"

to my Device section.  And now it always boots correctly.

One other strange thing.  I am using Fedora Core 6 with KDE following Jarod
Wilson's excellent how-to guide.  If you follow the menus and open up the
KDE Display Settings tool, it shows the resolution as 800x600.  However, if
you run the nvidia-settings utility, it shows the resolution is actually

I hope this helps.
