    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    I tried many help tutorials on configuring TV out, and none worked. Some just caused more problems.

    So...

    I ran Automatix, and it fixed my TV out right away. No additional settings needed, it mirrors my monitor. No screen switching, etc...

    Automatix does other cool stuff too...

    First make sure you have nvidia drivers installed...

    edit your xorg.conf
    $ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    find where it says:



    and make it like:


    Save and that's it. Reboot your computer, tv on and you should have a cloned view of your laptop

    This should work with composite or SVIDEO, since it should be managed by the drivers

    Hope it helps!
    Ok, thanks.
    But, it will clone my desk, right ?
    I don't want that... I prefer Dual View like in XP.
    If I do the modifications you said, will I be able to switch between the four desktop (1, 2, 3 and 4) and put in the 4 a movie player and watch it on TV and have another in my LCD ?

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hello,
    In doing a little modification of my xorg.conf to make this command functionnal :
    Code:
    mplayer -xineramascreen 1 -fs ton_film.avi
    The little modification I do is to add :
    Code:
    Section "ServerFlags"
       Option "Xinerama" "true"
    EndSection
    And I have what I wanted in my first post !! Dual View like in XP !

    So now I can drag&drop a window on my primary screen to the TV !

    Yes ^^

    The only restriction is that the display on the TV is dependent on the desktop displayed in the primary screen !
    So if my windows come from the desk 1 and displayed on TV, if I switch to desk 2, on the TV it switch too so I don't see anymore my windows on the TV, to see it again, I must switch to the desk 1.

    So here you have my xorg.conf :
    Code:
    # /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hum... I guess you'll have always a cloned view of what you are seeing in the LCD to the TV... just as I said, I just wanted to have a cloned view of what I was seeing on the TFT to the TV Hum... you can try messing around this setting:

    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "xxxx"

    where you replace the xxxx for RightOf

    Taken from: http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86_4...880/README.txt
    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "string"
    Controls the relationship between the two display devices
    when using TwinView. Takes one of the following values:
    "RightOf" "LeftOf" "Above" "Below" "Clone". Please see
    APPENDIX I for details. Default: string is NULL.
    Hope it helps anyone with troubles with TV-OUT... I like simple things

    Nope, this is not a clone view. Actually I wrote this message, I see it on my LCD, but not on my TV. So It isn't a cloned view.

    I try to put the twinview option, but It doesn't work : X dosn't start...

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    hello and thanks for the howto. Seems to all be there, but im a little afraid to try it...i have XGL and Compiz installed. Does this work with XGL? If not, i have my XGL set to manually turn on and off, so does having XGL installed effect this? Thanks

    IT WORKS

    After reading through the forums trying to get my Nvidia GeForce 5200 to clone my monitor with the TV-Out (TwinView?) i decided to cheat a little. The new SimplyMEPIS 6 is based on Ubuntu and I have had a lot of luck with its Nvidia setups the past. MEPIS has a great Control Center; unfortunately I do not think that it is GPL. So, I installed MEPIS and used its XOrg.conf for Kubuntu.

    I first used Automatix to install a recent Nvidia driver, and I had MEPIS do the same (via the MEPIS Control Center, which is now integrated into the overall KDE system settings).

    This is my original XOrg.conf for Kubuntu (I removed only the intro comments so as to make it as easy to compare as possible):

    Is it right? I don't know. Does it work perfectly so far? Yes it does!

    Sorry for the extreme length of my post, but I was looking for someone's working, full XOrg.conf file. Since I now have one and someone else may be looking, here it is!

    Sweet, sweet music to my eyes

    mod187, I am curious how you got Automatix to clone the screen for you? I used Automatix to install my Nvidia driver and Adept to install some Nvidia tools (one of which, "nvidia-settings," should make this whole thing for for each of us, but the software is pretty useless), but none fixed this issue for me. mod187?

    Thank you to tselliot for the Guide that got each of us moving on this!

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    i followed the guide to the bone. when i rebooted ubuntu started normally, i logged in and everything was working properly. however my tv screen is blank, its completely grey, if i move the mouse to the top right corner i can see the "x" cursor moving on the tv. only i have no picture, everything is grey though i can move the mouse around.

    here's my xorg file. i'd appreciated if someone helped me out as this probably the last thing i need to set-up on my new ubuntu 6.06 install.

    i use a s-video cabel, nvidia 6600gt.
