  2. not sure if this mythtv crash is due to ati driver

    Another problem with my new from scratch htpc build. I'm using archlinux with drm and xf860-video-ati from the git. I setup mysql and during the initial setup of the mythtv backend using...

    By the way, how do I find modelines for my tv that don't get reported via EDID? Will xrandr do what xserver doesn't do and find the missing ones for me?

    It said 720p. I think the blank screen in the kde utility was probably my fault. There was a kde dialog, but the font on the screen was too small, so I couldn't see and I clicked one of the buttons...

    I'm pretty sure it was in 1080p. There's a button on my TV remote that shows the mode. It was on 1080p, while all broadcast TV show 1080i. Also, my TV manual says 1080p's supported through hdmi.

    I'm not sure if this is what you meant. I booted clean, then logged in, and switched the display resolution to 1920x540 in kde and everything went black. Then I ssh'ed in and here's the Xorg.log

  8. can't get latest xf86-video-ati to output 1080p on hdmi

    I switched from catalyst to the open source radeon driver on my htpc. (Also upgraded from ubuntu to arch inthe process but I doubt that should make a difference) I used to be able to pick 1920x1080...

    Do the x-video changes now make radeonhd tear-free as well, or is radeon still the only driver to support it?

    thanks a lot. that worked great. I switched back to 8.8 as well so that I could use force-pbo. Unfortunately even with that, I still couldn't play 1080p mpeg2. Here's what I used for mplayer

    I finally figured out what went wrong with my driver upgrade. It was actually not the fault of the catalyst driver. The reason was that while I did the upgrade to 8.10, I had also ran the update...

    thanks. I'll probably give it another try on 8.11, since 8.10, unfortunately, didn't sound like it had the features I was hoping for, which was mainly a fix for v-sync and working xvmc. I won't...

    I don't have the same problem on my TV. Perhaps you can try to run mythfrontend in a window instead of fullscreen, if the latter was what you were running.
