We don't currently support CH7xxx DVO TV out, only DVI out.  We are
currently not working on improvements to DVO drivers, as our plans are
all full of supporting features on newer hardware that intel is putting
out themselves.  However, the Chrontel specs are open, so anybody who
wanted to write a driver for it for xf86-video-intel could, and they
would have the opportunity to control overscan and other options in the
way that the old pre-2.0 driver couldn't.
