ATI proprietary drivers do have a bug in them which makes the combination of VideoOverlaying and TV-Out useless.
+
If you have a display attached to the vga output connector, you will find the VideoOverlay mode fully functional.
+
However when the TV-Out connector is used, you will see the top-half of the actual TV/DVD signal. Disabling this
+
feature in the xorg.conf file (or use OpenGLOverlay instead) gives the whole TV/DVD signal, but may work slowly
+
depending on the overall speed of the system you are using.
+
 
+
On my personal (Athlon XP 1800+) mythtv system the TV/DVD playback functions are too slow, even with OpenGLOverlay
+
mode active on the binary drivers. So for normal TV-Out functionality I went to the store and bought a NVidia card
+
instead. My desktop system however (the 2nd mythfrontend :-) still functions perfectly with a ATI Radeon 9200SE.

Attached to a monitor and with VideoOverlay active...
