Description edwinh 2003-04-22 19:05:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225 Description of problem: I have a PC with an 810e graphics chip; it has both VGA and TV-out. I do not use the VGA output of the box, I only use the TV. In RH8.0, video w/Xv worked fine. In RH9, anything that uses Xv gives be a blank blue screen - the xv overlay is not working. Nothing telltale in the XFree86 log. I investigated i810_driver changes, googled a bit, and eventually reverted a few lines to what used to be there in previous versions - see the patch. With this it works. It looks like some logic that was added to detect tv/lcd before tweaking the register didn't work in my case?? (not sure). I commented that section out and globally let the reigster setting happen. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): XFree86-4.3.0-2 (tried -3.6 from rawhide too) How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have a 810 chipset w/ tvout only in use (for me anyway) 2. Run an xvideo-using app 3. Observe blue screen instead of video Additional info:

Created attachment 91233 [details] patch that globally sets OVRACT as in older versions

Unfortunately, I don't have Intel i810 video hardware to verify the problem and verify the fix. Can you report this issue also at http://bugs.xfree86.org and attach the patch there also, so that the driver maintainer can investigate, test, and apply the patch to CVS. I'd feel more comfortable that way if it can be approved by XFree86.org first.

This issue seems to be present in both the XFree86 and X.Org code bases. We encourage you to upgrade to the latest version of Fedora Core (http://fedora.redhat.com) to verify that the bug still exists. If this issue turns out to still be reproduceable in the latest version of Fedora Core, please file a bug report in the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component, in order to ensure that it is being tracked by X.Org developers as well, as X.Org X11 is what we are currently shipping. Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
