Making it Work

Video card works with Xorg. See links below. Still attempting to get TV display working under Linux. Gatos project software doesn't seem to be able to locate the card. Checking other options.

Some sites, such as this one on ATI TV-out indicate Gatos project doesn't support ATI X800 series cards. Although Gatos site list of supported cards indicates support for All in Wonder (Radeon) and support for Theater 200 chips merged into Xorg as of release 7.



Two types of drivers are available, proprietary and Open Source.
