TV Out Graphics Card
« on: February 2, 2002, 09:37:30 pm »
Anyone know how you connect your TV to your PC using a TV out card.I bought a S Video cable and can't get it to work  :but: I've just spent the last hour searching the web for a website with an idiots guide ::)

There should be an ariel in socket on the tv card which should be imilar to that on the back of your tv(well it is with the one I got anyway) so all you need is a lead that fits the two sockets and plug it in.  If that don't work then I am stumped. ::) ::) ::) ::)

I know this may sound stupid to ask but have you installed the software for the card??

WEBSiTE FEEDBACK HUH ? ;)

What sort is it ? I got Voodoo 3 with TV out but you have to enable it and (with mine at least) you can't have both at the same time  >:(

Anyway, here's 1 I made earlier:

Right Click Desktop / Properties / Settings / Advanced

and there should some Graphics Adapter Utils, 3DFX etc.

There should be the Util for TV out there

OR

you may have a Standalone Graphic Card Utils Prog in which case it should be in there.

:)

Ummm - what type of Card is it ?

Is it S-VHS Connector on each end of the cable ?

Do you have S-VHS Connector on your TV / Video ?

If it's SCART or RCA phono connectors on your TV / Video then you need to get what we in the trade call an "adapter"  ;)

hmmmm

Got all the latest drivers & DirectX ?

You running Windows XP?

Do you get an error when you try to switch to TV out? or just nothing?

You have selected the right input on TV / Video ?

Might seem daft to ask you these but there's a fair few would think I'm speaking a foreign language  ;)

Otherwise....I guess....I dunno...

just been having a look round the results of a search at GOOGLE

It says there's problems if it shares irq and CERTAIN versions of the drivers have problems too.

I suggest you check the manufacturer website for any info or driver updates or email them.

It doesn't seem like you're doing anything wrong anyway.

Stumped M8  ???

Good Luck

 :)
