    Linux Mint Elyssa - Tv-out with aOpen i975-hfs-ga


    Hello everybody,

    this is my first time here and I hope I'll be able to find lots of help!!!

    Here's my problem.

    I managed to put my hands on this beautiful motherboard and was planning to use it as a media center with a Linux distro. My choice fell onto Linux Mint. As newbie infact I find it pretty straightforward and with a good hw support.

    Now my goal would be using all possible video/audio output interfaces provided by the MB....or at least - to begin with - the S-VIDEO/tv-out interface.

    My first attempt to have that up and running was not a success. After installation, I connected the s-video cable, browsed in preferences and administration of Mint but couldn't find anything to let me have a tv-out signal to my tv...

    Can anyone please help?

    thank you all in advance!

    I think you might be better off working with a mythtv distro. Look into those, if you haven't already. I would suggest Mythbuntu 7.10 or later.

    Good luck and welcome to the forums!

    High five if you saw the linux computers 24 used on their CTU sets.
