I have 1.2.2 installed as well.

I don't really have anything special in mine.  It's pretty much the
same as yours, which sucks because my problem is not an error in my
XF86Config file.  :-(

Fair enough.

I get the same results with your XF86Config as I get with mine.  I
only see a black box on the TV where the video should be playing.
When I play with "-fs" I do get a tiny little bar in the upper
left-hand corner with what looks like some video in it.  It looks very
much like just an "underline cursor".  That gives me hope that I will
get something displaying on the TV with SDL.

Any other hints, anyone?
