    Please don't take my comment as a dig at the ported code, but I know that not all chips are supported yet and figured the fix will have to come from the IP release. Hopefully this will shorten the...

    The reason I asked is that HDMI audio support in radeonhd was a rev-engineered solution. It has been reported here that Alex has some patches under IP review. I would expect that Alex has access to...

    Cool, I hadn't checked drm-next in a few days. You've been busy Alex.

    BTW - drm-radeon-testing has a new commit porting HDMI support from radeonhd. Will this be the solution or just an interim...

    I there any time frame for this patch to hit .33 git? I haven't been messing with custom kernels lately since ubuntu has been fairly close through the .32. But .33 will likely change that, since...

    "It is high time that there was another stable release"

    That's the problem - stable. In addition to fixing corner cases that are being fixed continuously they are adding new functionality. Not...

    Scaling kind of works but introduces other problems... It still bases the screen off of 0,0 which is off screen and xrandr --pos has no effect. SO I can bring in the left and bottom but the right...

    Correct, I'm using HDMI, I'm keeping the faith that Alex's audio patches will see day light. There is no way to disable overscan on the TV. There are 3 levels of overscan with the lowest being...

    I should add that I've just started and have only tried with xrandr so far. Xorg.conf is moved out of the way. The radeon driver is detecting correctly but most use cases nowadays would be LCD...

    Overscan on the radeon driver

    I'm using the lastest radeon stack from xorg-edgers which is working well w/KMS. The problem is that I'm pushing a rear projection DLP @ 1080p and getting the usual ~5% overscan. With the catalyst...

    I would agree across the entire user base, it is likely higher. But in a corporate environment it's probably no different and ideally controlled by the admins. I've met alot office workers who...

    FWIW, I have a similar experience. Using the Ubuntu PPA and a the latest 2.6.32 daily - KMS, Xv, GL worked fine under the RADEON driver. Under RADEONHD, GL did just as you described. I just...

    That's good to hear, I do hope it includes IDCT/MC as well as H.264/VC-1. Honestly if the color range issue with Xv, XvMC was fixed it would go a long way in combination with the current XvBA...

    What exactly does that mean? Will MPEG2/4 see any benefit from XvBA in the near term or at all? Most of my use (>95% by percentage of play time) is MPEG2.
