    Video tv-out question?

    I have a voodoo 3 with tv out and im thinking about connecting it to my tv. What I want to know is how does the resolution work. I can put res up to 1600x1200 on my monitor will this work on a tv. Does it matter what res i put it in? Will it work with any res?

    Thanks

    TV video signals and PC monitors are quite different in how they transmit the images. The TV out is a defined analogue signal format which delivers 625 lines of information (PAL system) to the screen in a raster fashion at a fixed frequency (complete screen is scanned at 50 Hz for PAL).

    So in repect of changng the monitor res, it won't make a difference to the TV out.

    Cheers...

    No: Set your graphics card to 640x480, it is unlikely that you will get a picture on your tv at any greater resolution. Also on the V3 there is not enough memory to run both displays at once so it is better to go for the resolution I have said rather than being faced with 2 blank screens and the need to CTL-ALT-DEL.
