    video driver - no signal


    Hello,

    I am trying to connect Linux box with TV using Component cables and get no signal. I am working from console. My question is - since there is no X running is it correct to assume that xorg.conf is not involved? In othe words, I don't even need to try to change resolution... are there any other video settings before xorg in Linux (Fedora)? Or should I start with the driver?

    thnx

    Yes. vga controls the Resolution of Terminals ( tty ). Pass supported value of vga to kernel.
    Check Linux video mode numbers table here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
