In my pursuit for the ultimate media center, I have attached my desktop/server to my TV in the living room using S-Video. It was using the nvidia driver originally, but I was only getting black and white color. I figured I wouldn't be playing any games on it, so I switched it to the nv driver. That didn't fix it, that just made it worse. It was just "snow" (it looked like someone was playing an uber fast game of Galaga). After that, I tried the vesa driver, and everything works without a hitch (low res, but it works).
I haven't ever done a bug report for X11 or kernel-level drivers. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about doing this? What logs I need to look at and if it is indeed X11 or the kernel itself? Thanks in advance.
