[mythtv-users] ATI-DRIVERS: Blue Hue

Hi All,

Quick question about ATI-Drivers, and the blue hue.

I have been using myth for about 2 weeks now (AWESOME!)

I have a couple question regarding using an ATI Radeon 9600 and Linux.
I know this isn't really related, but I figure if anyone has the
answer it'll be people using tv-out, on this list.

So, I'm running Gentoo, Mythtv-SVN as of last night. Xorg 7.1.1 and
ati-drivers 8.27

If i upgrade the drivers to 8.3, the video is double stretched in
height (missing the bottom half of the video). Mplayer works fine, so
do DVD's. Only the tv is messed up.

I am able to fix this double height issue, if i enable Option
"TextureVideo" "on"  in the xorg configuration file. But, once this is
fixed, all the tv channels have this weird blue hue to them.

So basically i'm stuck using 8.27 drivers because either it's double
height, or they all have a blue hue to them.

Oh, this is with XV Overlay. If I have overlay off, the newer drivers
work, but obviously CPU usage is higher, and the preview window in the
PG doesn't work.

Anyone have a fix for this, or is it just up to ATI?
