    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.

    Resolume in Boot Camp

    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:

    2.0GHz Core 2 Duo
    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.
