    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Cazz change tv:800x600 to tv:800x600@1280x800

    It's not the best solution but its better than having to set your laptop screen to 800x600.

    kebab try some other formats

    PAL-B


    Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Guinea, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland

    PAL-D


    China and North Korea

    PAL-G


    Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland

    PAL-H


    Belgium

    PAL-I


    Hong Kong, Ireland, and United Kingdom

    PAL-K1


    Guinea

    PAL-M


    Brazil

    PAL-N


    France, Paraguay, and Uruguay

    PAL-NC


    Argentina

    NTSC-J


    Japan

    NTSC-M


    Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, South Korea, Taiwan, United States of America, and Venezuela

    HD480i


    480 line interlaced

    HD480p


    480 line progressive

    HD720p


    720 line progressive

    HD1080i


    1080 line interlaced

    HD1080p


    1080 line progressive

    HD576i


    576 line interlace

    HD576p


    576 line progressive
    Also make sure your TV actually supports 1024x768, i know some that can only do 800x600 or 640x480

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Thanks

    I did try that but that is same result.
    The picture on TV dont show whole desktop


    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "NVIDIA Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go 32M]"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        Option 		"RenderAccel" 		"true"
        Option 		"AllowGLXWithComposite" "true" 
        Option		"IgnoreEDID"		"true"
        Option		"IgnoreEdidFreqs"	"true"
        Option		"GenerateRTList"	"0"
        Option		"OverridePolarity"	"1"
        Option		"TwinView"	"true"
        Option		"TwinViewOrientation"	"Clone"
        Option		"TVOutFormat"		"Composite" #SVIDEO
        Option		"TVStandard"		"PAL-B"
        Option		"Metamodes"	"dfp-0:1280x800,dfp-1:1024x768@1280x800;dfp-0:1280x800,tv:800x600@1280x800;dfp-0:1280x800,dfp-1:NULL"
    EndSection

    I going to try other then "clone"

    No that was no good.

    But someome told me to read Appendix P (Configuring Multiple X Screens on One Card)
    Maybe that help.


    /EDIT
    The Appendix P is that exempel that start this thread and that I can't get to work, no picture in the TV.

    Well all you have to do is disconnect the cable heh. But if your on a laptop some have a hardware switch (like FN + F8) that will kill the signals.

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    I finally got my xorx.conf work with my DiBoss 32" (HDTV) LCD-TV. Now i have two kinds of problems: when i remove "ModeLine "720p" 73.825 1280 1320 1368 1640 720 722 724 751 +hsync +vsync" line from Monitor section, then LCD TV works great, BUT it has very big black borders around of the picture. The second problem is that, if i include "ModeLine "720p" 73.825 1280 1320 1368 1640 720 722 724 751 +hsync +vsync" line to monitor section, then the picture will overscan and i can't see the taskbars.

    I have tried to set the resolution to 1080i, but it did the same thing . I also have tried to remove and add virtual screen size, but it didn't help either. This is the only problem that i have with tv-out: overscan or black borders around the picture (empty space).

    Has anybody got advices for this? Here is my xorg.conf in the attachment.

    Here is my computers etc. specs: AMD 64 2800+,epox paj,nvidia 6600,breezy badger,nvidia drivers and DiBoss 32" LCD-TV (HDTV LT-32Q5LFH). LCD-Tv is connected to PC with component cable.

    When you dream there are no rules. People can fly. Anything can happen. Sometimes there's a moment as you're waking and you become aware of the real world around you, but you are still dreaming. You may think you can fly but you better not try.

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    wow ! interesting and complete stuff here, but i could'nt find anything for my nvtv-problem.
    maybe one of you can help me out.

    after i installed nvtv, i could start my machine, and after login, pessing the F1 button starts my television.

    but, the screen, the desktop that appears on my tv is huge. like zooming in and only seeing the centerpart of the desktop. it's way to big to resize it with the mouse.
    changing resolution didn't help, and besides that, nvtv doesn't seem to remember any changes i made, after a restart.

    i'm using a Asus 7100 card, believe it uses nvidia chipset.
    nvidia drivers installed on my box.

    hope someone has a tip...

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hi,
    I followed the guide in post 1 and my TV still isn't working. Its worked before so I know it isnt the hardware. Here is my xorg.conf and a snippet from my Xorg.0.log.
    Can you see anything wrong?
