I'm trying to use the DVI-svideo and rca adaptor to connect an external tv as the second display under xp.... no luck so far, the options in the ati controls seems to only apply for second monitors... there is no "tv out" option that I can see.

in case it matters I'm in PAL land and I'm trying to run pc VJ applications (resolume) displaying a full screen second external output. if I connect the DVI-s-video adaptor to the tv and reboot in xp, the main display actually comes up blank and I have to disconnect it and reboot

would be very intersted to hear if anyone has got this working.

I got Resolume to work in Windows XP Boot Camp. :D

You have to make sure to use the "Screen Setup" button and disable output for monitor 1 (laptop display) and full screen for monitor 2 (extended desktop). It works beautifully.

Here's my setup:

Macbook
2.0GHz Core 2 Duo
Superdrive
4gb RAM (although the chipset only recognizes 3.3 gb RAM) - self installed
200gb Seagate 7200rpm hard drive - self installed
10.5.1 Leopard
XP 20gb-partition in Boot Camp
Mini DVI to VGA cable
exterior monitor native resolution: 1280x768 (Syntax Olevia 27" TV)

Here's a fuzzy cell phone pic. I'll take some better pics when I have a chance.
