I also have the impression that the TV-out switching is a bit glitchy. My old tvout-profiles.conf was not overwritten, because I changed profiles. This itself is not a problem, but for some reason the old file had no write permits(?) Since the switch always checks the "last written" my custom settings would get lost. Also my new settings weren't saved in the profiles of course. Not sure if this permission problem came because I may have done a "mv tvout-profiles.conf tvout-profiles.conf.old" and then a "cp tvout-profiles.conf.old tvout-profiles.conf "? Anyway, setting the permission right solved it, just wanted to mention it in case this permission thing was not my own fault. But I think I found a different problem: Load profile 1 disable TV-out Load profile 2 switch layer -> you are back to profile 1 I suspect that when loading profile 2, the "last written" profile is not changed, only after disabling TV-out it will be written to the file? Another problem I have is that I have now set the NTSC profiles to use S-video, and the PAL profiles to use composite. When I load them through the TV-out configuration this works fine. When selecting one of the profiles from the list (Taskbar-icon -> TV-out -> profile) they will always be S-video ... any idea why?
