View Full Version : Mythbuntu control of S-Video and VGA out

October 6th, 2008, 05:57 PM
Hi, I just installed Mythbuntu and during installation, I turned on S-Video.
When I use my monitor on the VGA port, nothing comes out.

What is the proper (and easy) way to toggle video to come out
on S-Video and VGA port (on the same graphics card)? It seems that video can only come out one or the other (i.e. VGA or S-Video) and not both.

thanks for any tip.

I have one of my frontends setup two X session, one with S-video, one with VGA, at the same time. What type of card are you using? I've got a nvidia card and using nvidia-settings to point and click my way to this configuration was all I needed to do.

I've also an NVidia card (GeForce FX5200).
Let me give this a try. Thanks.
