Of course. As I also use other applications on the box (mplayer, photo viewing), neither reducing the resolution nor enabling interlacing (1080i) is desired. Software deinterlacing is no problem, from time to time I experiment with all the interlacer options. (I wonder why there's no simple "TV simulator" that upmixes 50 fields/s to 50 frames/s just like a CRT TV?). > right.

I'm really busy currently (but your project looked so cool that I just *had* to write an email to the list), but as soon as I get to it, I'll try to make it work. Does anyone have a [EMAIL PROTECTED] modeline ready? Currently, I use the settings provided by the TV via EDID, and I guess it defaults to 60Hz :( >> I wonder if your patch could be applied to a DVI/HDMI connection, too? >> Its a Radeon X850 currently with xf86-video-ati 6.6.3 and xorg-server 1.4. > > In your case the only prerequisite is support of your Radeon X850 by Radeon > DRM driver.

As the box runs a home-built netboot mini distro, I am quite flexible regarding kernel versions. As soon as I have some spare time (probably after I finished my BA thesis :(, I get to it...
