    Re: TV-Out working, but a few issues

    I feel obliged to append the fact that I'm new to this and might need a bit more explanation on some command line functions.

    I've got a GeForce2 Go on an Inspiron8200. I've got the TV output working, but not that way I want it.

    First, I'm not sure if I've got the nvidia legacy drivers installed properly. When I ran the .run package I got a message saying couldn't find "ld" in package "binutils". However, I see the Nvidia splash screen and TV-out is working, so, I'm not sure if it's properly installed. Is there anyway I can find out?

    Second, when my TV-out works, my login screen is at the same resolution as the TV, but when I login, my monitor jumps to the proper resolution. The TV, on the otherhand only shows the top right hand corner of the screen.

    Is there anyway I can enable "panning" so that I can view the entire contents of my DFP monitor by moving the mouse and the TV display follows my mouse?

    Also, right now, the way it works is that if I open additional applications in the same screen space as my video, it overlays itself, and I can't see the video. Is there anyway I can force the video output to play at full screen on the TV, while allowing me to use my entire desktop space on the DFP display?

    I've attached the relevant parts (I think) of my xorg.conf and xorg.0.log files.

    One thing that might be odd, are my metamodes settings. The order seems to be DFP-0, TV-0 in the xorg.0.log file, but it seems like I have to set my metamodes resolution opposite (TV-0 resolution, DFP-0 resolution). If I do the opposite "1400x1050,640x480" I don't get any output on the TV.

    Any assistant, suggestions are truly appreciated. Really looking forward to getting this setup up and running smoothly. The log file is attached. The xorg.conf section is below.

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 Go]"
    Option "NoLogo" "True"
    Driver "nvidia"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "TwinView"
    #Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0,TV-0"
    Option "MetaModes" "640x480,1400x1050"
    Option "HorizSync" "DFP-0:28-70; TV-0:31.5-48.4"
    Option "VertRefresh" "DFP-0:43-60; TV-0:60-60.3"
    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
    Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
    Option "TVOutFormat" "Composite"

    EndSection
    You should ask in the thread about Twinview (because that's what you're using)

    The displayed area doesn't cover 100% of the screen. It's normal that 2 black stripes (very small on my 21" TV) appear on the upper and lower border of the screen.

    I don't own a plasma TV but I can tell you that my Sony Wega 21" has not been damaged by those stripes.

    I restored my old xorg.conf file (before following this guide) and the khotkeys work fine again (forgot to test kscreensaver and kcron problem).

    When using the modified xorg.conf (with tv-out) I have two khotkeys running (the same as 2 kickers, 2 kdesktop, 2 kwin, etc). If I run khotkeys from konsole I get the following error:
    Code:
    X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 166
      Major opcode:  146
      Minor opcode:  3
      Resource id:  0x0
    Failed to open device
    Any help on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated since I won't like to quit on TV-Out nor mouse gestures+keyboard shortcuts.
    I finally found a way to have khotkeys working with the xorg.conf with tv-out. I run:
    killall khotkeys | khotkeys --display :0.0
    and although I get an error message, it start to work (I created a link on the autostart folder, although a smarter thing would be to add the command line option wherever khotkeys is first launched on the kde startup process...)

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    I have another problem:

    After updating to linux-image-2.6.15-26-386 I can't startx, on the booting process I get a Fatal error telling that:
    Code:
    Module nvidia_legacy not found
    Module nvidia not found
    I can still run with kernel 2.6.15-25-386, so I'm using that, but I can't guess what is the problem with the newer one.

    Thanks,
    Mguel

    IF AND ONLY IF you installed the nvidia driver from Ubuntu's repos, try this command:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-386
    and boot in the new kenrel.

    OTHERWISE, if you installed the driver by means of the Nvidia installer or my script:
    boot in the new kernel and reinstall the driver
