Can someone please explain how I can diplay my DVD movies through to my TV screen.
I have the TV out jack & the RCA lead to connect from the computer to the TV.
What I desperatly need are instructions on changes required to my computer or TV (i.e. Graphics card settings?)
I hope there is someone out there with the relevant knowledge to help me... PLEASE

Originally posted by Luis G: Right click on desktop, properties, and then go to your display adapter preferences, you should be able to enable tv-out.
Still, i recommend you to download/try/buy TVtool, is a little program that will remove macrovision and includes some other nice features like that.
Thanks for the reply but after following your advice I found that although the TV tab is there it is not enabled
If you can't enable it, i would try changing drivers.
I have a TNT2U with tv-out, and when i installed a newer version of drivers i couldn't get tv-out to work, i contacted creative's tech support and they told me that those drivers had no tv-out support.
If your video card has the brooktree tv-out then any detonator from nvidia will be able to "turn on the tv-out", but if it doesn't you will need to contact Pixelview for the appropiate driver.
PD. Have you already downloaded the shareware version of Tvtool?, it works for 30 secs or 1 minute, don't remember exactly, but still you can see if it works for you.
If you were in a world full of crazy people, who would be the crazy person?

The TvTool demo works for 10 minutes. I suggest you take out your AGP card and inspect the underside (very close to the tv and monitor outs) and look for a chip labelled Connexant (aka Brooktree), Chrontel, or Phillips. There is a version of TvTool that will work with Chrontel chipsets and it's free.
Sir, are you classified as human? Negative, I am a meat popsicle.
