Your ATI board is much beefier that my on-board ATI RADEON IGP 9100, and
I don't have the problem that you're talking about at all. In fact, I
have already told you that I am getting amazingly perfect HDTV video in
1080i. Maybe you should switch away from the binary driver and try the
radeon driver in the kernel.
