    GeForceMX Twinview

    OK, my Elsa GladiacMX apparently has twinview according to the drivers (you can enable/disable it).

    1. What is TwinView? My conception of it was a dual monitor card.

    2. However, my card only has one analogue output on it, and nothing else.

    So does my card really have twinview?

    There are versions of the Geforce 2 MX that do have twinview. An example would be the Leadtek Geforce 2 MX DH Pro. Since NVIDIA has unified Detonator drivers for its cards, it seems that the option for Dual Head would be there, but would do nothing on your particular card. On the cards with TwinView it would invariably serve a particular function.

    Twinview is the really the ability to drive two displays independantly. They don't necessarily have to be analog CRTs.

    If you only have one analog CRT output and no TV out, DVI out, or second analog CRT out you don't really have twinview capability. The Geforce 2 MX itself supports it but lacks the physical connection.

    I thought the Elsa came with TV out? Or maybe you can but the little daughter card that snaps into the female pinouts that are next to the GPU.

    Any specialized audio-video store should have an adapter that goes from S-video to RCA. Just ask for it. National Camera and Video should have it, as well as Radio Shack, just to give you examples.
