[linux-dvb] Turning on TV-OUT?

Hmmmm.... nvtv looks promising, but it can't find the TV-Out chip, nor
any I2C devices when I do nvtv -P, though it detects an FX5200. Am I
being stupid here?

nv doesn't have an option to turn it on. NVIDIA's driver has (compiles 
fine here, 2.6.10).

Alternatively, you can use the nvtv utility, which controls the tv-out 
of NVIDIA card (http://sourceforge.net/projects/nv-tv-out/).
