Your ATI board is much beefier that my on-board ATI RADEON IGP 9100, and 
I don't have the problem that you're talking about at all.  In fact, I 
have already told you that I am getting amazingly perfect HDTV video in 
1080i.  Maybe you should switch away from the binary driver and try the 
radeon driver in the kernel.
