hi all, i've just bought a new ati radeon 9000, obviusly there aren't
still drivers, but i found a patch for xfree to work a radeon 9000 as a
8500. Someone has told that the 8500 is similar to 9000. 
Well the problem is with the vesa driver, i tryed something like:
mplayer -vo vesa:vidix:radeon_vid.so file.divx
and mplayer -vo vesa:vidix file.divx
obviously i connected the tv-out to the tv before the boot of the pc and
obviously i was root on console.
Follow the log:

Radeon_vid: Found chip: Unknown chip
Radeon_vid: Driver was forced. Was found unknown chip

vo_vesa: Found VESA VBE BIOS Version 2.0 Revision: 100
vo_vesa: Video memory: 65536 Kb
vo_vesa: VESA Capabilities: 8-bit DAC, VGA CRTC, normal RAMDAC, no

vo_vesa: !!! Below will be printed OEM info. !!!
vo_vesa: You should watch 5 OEM related lines below else you've broken
vo_vesa: OEM info: ATI RADEON RV250
vo_vesa: OEM Revision: 100
vo_vesa: OEM vendor: TI RADEON RV250
vo_vesa: OEM Product Name: V250

vo_vesa: Hint: To get workable TV-Out you should have plugged
tv-connector in
vo_vesa: before booting PC since VESA BIOS initializes itself only
during POST
vo_vesa: Using VESA mode (27) = 1c6 [640x350 at 0]
vo_vesa: Using DGA (physical resources: D0000000h, 04000000h)
vosub_vidix: video server has unsupported color depth by vidix (0)
vo_vesa: Can't initialize VIDIX driver
init_vo failed
vo_vesa: vbeRestoreState returns: VESA failed = 0x4fff
vo_vesa: vbeSetMode returns: VESA failed = 0x4fff

Then there is
any hope to work the tv-out of the radeon 9000 ?
or may be is it my mistake ?
thx all :-)
