The motherboard is working perfect for me.  I installed it yesterday and 
everything was working out-of-the box (using ubuntu feisty)

Tv-out is woking as soon as I power up my frontend.

On ubuntu, I installed the lates nvidia drivers (nvidia-glx-new).  I can not 
remember anymore if I used nvidia-settings to change the configuration.  But 
I do remember I added 
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
for PAL output.
