Let me continue this hijacked thread for one or 2 more reiterations 

I was trying to help a friend make an ATI All-in-Wonder work for tv 
viewing tonight, and that caused us to compare a few notes.  For

I _think_ the secondary is supposed to be an NTSC output of some kind, 
but I'm not sure the back panel is populated with the right plugs for 

Could the lack of properly 'identifying the primary device' make the 
driver pick the slow but safe way of doing things?

And is this then a new variation of the r200 chipset?

If this identifies the problem, is there a chance of a patch 

Cheers, Gene
