thank you for jumping in,
yes I have tried the VGA output also and the behavior is identical.
I also tried the modified xbmcbuntu from xbmcfreak.nl.
it has the kernel v3.0 and fglrx v8.960 drivers from xedgers...no luck
Unfortunatly I cannot boot any of the openelec live imgs because the kernel they are bundled with need a CPU with PAE and mine has not.
There is still 1 thing that I cannot do is have a system with kernel 3.2 + fglrx v8.960 because Xorg fails to start ( as I mention is post #665 - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sourc...bug/990436
Since the problem comes from XVBA::CreateSession ( XVBACreateDecodeProc from the libXvBAW.so.1 library ), I tend to think something is no working correctly in the fglrx driver ( libXvBAW.so.1 is included in the package), but I don't really if it is useful to fill in a bug report@AMD, and more important how to describe the problem to them....
I don't know where to keep digging, so I will have to stick to noHD video on my system for now... a pity.
.... unless you guys have more suggestion to make?
