After a long time spent searching for a way to use television-out ports on Fedora GNU/Linux, the Piga Software developers finally discovered the XRandR utility after a post on a Fedora support forum. After successfully using both the XRandR and Xvattr tools, Hamish Wilson decided to write a program in Gambas that would allow a user to control their TV-out port using one central interface. Development began on October 9, 2008, originally under the name of "XRandR-GTK". The name was later changed to "PigaVision" to better demonstrate that it was a TV-out utility using several tools, rather than just another graphical user interface for XRandR. The first release was made available on October 31, 2008. A minor release was released later the same day to fix a stray bug discovered in the program. On January 27, 2009, the third release of PigaVision (1.2.0) was made available. It featured various new interface changes and custom resolution and video mode support.
