I decided not so long ago to equip my linux firewall with a TV card and setup a PVR or something like that. The card I used never seemed to work in the computer, I suspect it was using IRQs in use by other cards.
I recently bought a Matrox Marvel G400 off ebay, and with the right amount of tweaking I got output in textmode. It happily shows the login screen in PAL format.
However, when I start X the screen switches to green and black bands and the colours are completely shot. I wonder if anyone knows a solution to this problem.
The card is running the latest flash version with 21TVO. The machine is a P3/500 with 192MB RAM, Linux 2.4.26 with Matrox configs compiled in.
I'm suspecting X is ignoring the screen size and trying to display without using the fbdev settings and attempting to use one of its own.
