Gentoox Hdtv 480p
Posted 15 January 2004 - 01:00 AM
I have just tried the 480p setting and i see the initial scrolling screen in crystel clear quality but when it goes to the xfce desktop it is unalbe to view. Kind of like the problems everyone else has before then run xbvset.
Unfortunately, after rerunning xbvset 3 times it still does not work for me.
I was just wondering if anyone had any luck doing so.

I download gentoox v3.0 c installs perferct
Select 800x600 and XFCE installs perfect
I run Magic until it says no updates required and wate 6 hours reboot screen scrambled
SSH in and I can run xbvset but I do not get the HDTV or X2VGA options as per Shallax post. all I get is 800x600 or 640x480 I select 800x600 reboot and screen still scrambled
I SSH again and select 640x480 XFCE still boot and XFCE still scrambled
I modify linuxbootcfg and now I can see the old crappy bit map charicters on boot but when XFCE loads screen stays for 10 second then blanks out.
Can not recover no matter what I select in xbvset
very frustrating tried 3 times with XFCE and KDE just in case but still no new driver choices.
So now I dont have linux on xbox (apart from SSH) if I run magic at all.

Give this a shot. runs rather quickly and will fix your problems with xbvset. Although I still can not get the HDTV or tv modes to work at this point. still waiting for an update from Shallax...
magic fix displaytools1 && magic fix xfcepatch1 && magic

so here is what I have
Sony HDTV with XBOX pluged in via composite ports - HDTV game play in HDTV Mode perfectly
HDTV - 480p mode - KDE 3.1
Screen totally scrambled and TV does not recoginese as a HDTV signal
HDTV 720p mode KDE 3.1
TV did recognise it as a HDTV signal
Screen viewable but geometry way off and with left side and bottom half not viewable
the screen is very hard to read and not very crisp as at all (looks interlaced) no where as crisp as gentoox fresh install with NTSC adn 800x600
X2VGA 720p mode KDE 3.1
Screen viewable but again overscanned did recognise as a HDTV feed
No choices worked any more
Think if we had the abilaty to change HOC and VOC would impreve chances (is this in XF86config file ??)

Putting the overscan aside how is the resolution in 720p?

Shallax was last on IRC about two days ago but I think is back at school so probably why he is scarce. Look forward to his return as he has done such a great job with this distro.

|I had a feeling that the hdtv 480p mode wouldnt work, but.... x2vga+480p+1024x768 works PERFECTLY over here.|

|OK I tried KDE 3.1 gentoox and 480p 1024*768 on a HDTV (not monitor) the screen is readable but fuzzy overscanned and geometry is also out :-(|
But 480p should have a resolution of 720x480 pixels and 720p is 1280x720 pixels. 1024x768 is neither so your TV probably isn't recognising it as an HDTV signal.
