I have this problem: My Linux does not accept my TV when I try to connect it to the computer. I posted about it in this thread
and got no replies. Since this is really a new problem, I figured I would start a new thread about it.
I have a TV that I want to use as a secondary computer monitor (connected via HDMI). My Linux does not like this. In fact, KDE will not start up at all if I even have the TV connected. I get past the "Fedora 13" loading screen and then the screen turns black with a little bit of flicker. (It spams a lot of error data to a log file, which I can post if anyone wants them.) I have to disconnect the TV to get my monitor to behave.
I am running Fedora 13 and KDE 4.5.3 on a 64-bit machine. My video card is an ATI Radeon HD5750.
I believe this has to do with my ATI driver. Right now I am using the rawhide driver, which Fenrin helped me set up in the thread I linked to above. But when using this driver, I cannot use the TV.
If I install ATI's driver instead, my TV works, but everything in Linux runs very slowly.
Is there any way to be able to use my TV as monitor and
have my Linux run smoothly? Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
