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.
