Ubuntu Component Video Out on Asus M2NPV-VM

2012-10-17  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:2 


I am trying to get the component video out on my ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard working with Edgy. My basic setup -

AMD 64 3800+ X2
1 Gb RAM

Edgy Server (AMD64)

I'm trying to setup a MythTV box but can only get the display on my computer monitor. I'm basically new to linux/ubuntu so any help would be appreciated. I want to get the video output sent over to my HDTV via the component video out on the motherboard. I followed the mythtv setup wiki for a combined backend / frontend myth tv server box.

From what I've read, I think that I need to edit my xorg.conf file. I must admit that I have no idea what to edit.
