Dear All,

I have been messing around with my new Epia EN15000G and knoppmyth RC5F
to get TV out to work, with no success.
The MB is set to both TV and CRT. Using either composite or S-video
makes no difference to my problem appart from latest being B&W

During boot, I get the nice bootsplash on both TV and CRT; at this time
refresh rate is 50Hz.
When X starts, TV switches of. I guess it will not take anything else
than 50Hz.

Messing about with xorg.conf gave me the following problems:
- when setting max refresh rate to 50Hz, I get an error when X attempts
to start and screens flickers: "processor spawning too fast. will try
again in 5min"
- if I leave refresh rate to 60Hz max, TV screen blanks out and x starts
on CRT

Passing my full xorg.conf through the mail is somehow difficult in my
home setup, would have to retype it on second computer..

- what should I look for in xorg.conf to get max refresh rate of 50Hz
- do I need a specific modeline? what would it be?

browsing through the forums, answering this question would sort out many
guys out there...
