    Phoronix: Nouveau TV-Out Progresses For NV30/40 GPUs

    With the Nouveau driver earning itself some new attention now that its DRM code has been pulled into the Linux 2.6.33 kernel, there is another important milestone worth sharing. The Nouveau driver now has TV-Out working and being considered "done" for the NV30 class GPUs (the GeForce 5 / FX series) and is mostly done for NV40 GPUs (the GeForce 6 series)...

        But are anyone using TV out nowadays?

        Isn't everything HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort?

        I can't even recall seeing a TV in a shop with analog input.

          Yes there are many people still using CRT's out there, they are still being sold as well. Not to mention the many projectors and such out there that people use with composite although old they still work well enough for alot of people.

            I haven't ran across a current TV yet that does not have composite.

              I can't even recall seeing a TV in a shop with analog input.
              I for example use S-Video TV-Out for video output on 28" (4:3) CRT TV (on ATI Radeon 9600 card).
              I don't plan to change this TV or disable TV-Out in next 2-3 years.
              I don't have space for 29" LCD TV there and I watch cable analog TV there, too. So I don't need to change anything there.
