    s-video out xorg i810


    For a while I've been trying to get video driver for my toshiba satellite m40x. I've found one that works nicely, the i810 driver. With this driver I noticed that if I try to use the s-video out I do get an output, but it's not my desktop, also the mouse doesn't seem to work on the tv.

    Here's what my desktop looks like:


    Here's what it looks like on the tv:

    Ok, I now understand what's going on. My laptop is using dual-head, so the mouse does work after all and the video output is great.
    One final question. Is it possible to turn off the s-video output when the computer boots because right now I have to press Fn + F5 to make sure it's off. It's not a big thing but it would be nice.

    thanks,
    nikosapi
