     tvtwo - accelerated 24-bit color frame buffer

     tvtwo* at sbus?
     wsdisplay* at tvtwo?

     The Parallax XVideo and PowerVideo frame buffers, also known as `tvtwo',
     are memory based color frame buffers, with graphics acceleration and
     overlay capabilities, and hardware MPEG decoding.

     The tvtwo driver interfaces the frame buffer to the wscons(4) console
     framework.	 It does not provide direct device driver entry points but
     makes its functions available via the internal wsdisplay(4) interface.

     The XVideo and PowerVideo frame buffers will adapt their resolution and
     refresh rate to the monitor they are connected to.	 However, when not
     connected to a Sun monitor, the device will default to the
     cgthree(4)-compatible 1152x900 resolution, with a refresh rate of 67Hz.
     A different resolution can be forced using the rotary switch on the edge
     of the board.

     The available modes are as follows:

	   Rotary    Resolution	   Refresh Rate
	   0	     autodetect	   autodetect
	   1	     1152x900	   67Hz
	   2	     1152x900	   76Hz
	   3	     1152x900	   60Hz
	   4	     1024x768	   77Hz
	   5	     640x480	   60Hz

     All other rotary positions will behave as position 0, except for
     positions E and F.	 Position E enables the board built-in debugger on the
     serial port, and should not be used by end-users.	Position F selects the
     video mode settings stored in the cards NVRAM.  These settings cannot be
     modified under OpenBSD.

     This driver does not support any acceleration features at the moment.
