I also do some test on three machines with integrated TV by using low
level for TV sense control. It is very surprising that the TV also can
be detected correctly.

In fact I only do the tests on three machines. I am not sure whether it
can work well on some other machines as expected.
At the same time according to the spec the sense state should be set to
high. And it seems that the current detection logic can work well on the
915GM/945GM/965GM. Maybe we can still use the high level sense control
for the other platform.
Anyway, it is still a good point that the sense state bits are clearedto
zero on the other platforms.
