    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Sorry if it was explained before, I simply do not have time to read 27 pages, lol!

    This guide worked perfect for gnome without XGL/Compiz on.

    With XGL/Compiz I can move my curser to the other screen but it is just a black screen with my curser as an X.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    I have a little problem, though...

    I have my TV connected to my laptop.

    Everything works as it should, but the TV blanks when I close the lid!

    ...It would be nice to be able to watch TV without the light from the laptop.

    Another problem:

    Kicker (the taskbar) shows on the TV, whenever I browse around in Konqueror... Why??

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Worked great for me!

    I have a PCI-E GeForce 6600 running on Dapper 6.06 with Nvidia 8762 driver.

    I ran a standard RCA type cable to my tv (since it's older and has no S-Video input) from the Nvidia adapter which is plugged into the S-Video output on my card and it works fine.

    I selected Composite for video type on the TV (since it has no S-Video input).

    Thanks for the easy to follow guide!

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hi!

    I followed the guide but could not get my tv-out to work.
    I tried a lot of things, nothing worked. All i could figure out was that when i set BusID in the 2nd device-section, X crashes, it first tries 3 modes to set my display on the computer but result is always that upper half of screen is full white, lower half black. Thats all, nothing on the tv.

    Any ideas what i should do?

    i attach my config and the log.

    I have a black border, 5cm thick all around the picture on the TV...

    How do I correct this?

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hey all.

    I followed the initial post step by step. Rebooted my machine and it won't load the X Server.

    I did do sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

    So, I was wondering, since I can only use the terminal when Ubuntu boots up, how can I replace the .conf with the backup?

    I'm a complete newbie, by the way.

    Thanks for the help.

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    Hi,

    It should work to copy back, if you change source to destination and vice versa, like:

    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    cp stands for "copy" then "from" and "to"
    sudo is a tool to run commands even if You are not "root" user but do know the "root" password...but You already have experience with that...

    Check Your log file Xorg.0.log in /var/log/, maybe it helps (Do this before You copy things back, and run X, because then it overwrites it)

    Bye!

    Re: HOWTO: NVIDIA TV-OUT for Newbies

    For those who have problems try coment out this line, something like this

    Code:
    # Option          "TVOutFormat" "Composite"
    Reboot and try. this work for me, i made many test (twinview, tv-out, etc) and no matters what i putt there (composite, SVIDEO) the tv wont work.

    PSlease add this option in the guide, it would be great for many users

    BTW thanks for this
