nvtv and atitvout are tools for switching between ports, but most likely
won't work with a Matrox card.

If you use the (slow but reliable) framebuffer X-Server, the tvout picture
should survive the start of the X-Server. Use




instead of the keyword "knoppix" at the boot:-prompt. I use this on my
notebook frequently when using a projector in talks.
