Hi Alex,

it's working great !!!

But two more questions:
-> How can I stop TV-out? e.g. xrandr --delmode S-video 800x600 doesn't work
-> Can I switch between NTSC/PAL ? I don't see any option in xrandr or bios.

I've tried to complete and summarize your advices in this short 

1. First make sure you back up the existing radeon (radeon_drv.so) and ati 
(ati_drv.so) drivers.
2. install the xorg-dev, mesa-dev, xserver-dev, drm-dev packages for your 
3. git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati
4. cd xf86-video-ati
5. git checkout origin/randr-1.2  (Git-Version 1.5)
    git checkout randr-1.2 (Git-Version 1.4)
6. ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr (or any home-directory, but then you have to 
copy the files manual to the correct directory)
7. make
8. (sudo) make install (or copy the files radeon_drv.so/ati_drv.so)

1. git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/app/xrandr
2. ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
3. make
4. make install

-> restartX and activate the S-video port:
1.) xrandr --addmode S-video 800x600
2.) xrandr --output S-video --mode 800x600
