I discovered an horrible thing today.
I use a lot this feature of my old FX5900 card, but now that I want to
upgrade my system I read I can't go for an Nvidia gpu again, as the
feature has been removed for an unknown reason:

(from a 2007 forum post)
Nvidia support answered to me this:

Understand from your email that you are using a GeForce 8800 GTS
graphics card and now with the new NVIDIA Control panel, you are
unable to achieve fullscreen overlay on TV.

With Geforce 8 Series graphics GPU's, the Full Screen Video Mirror
function in the NVIDIA Control Panel is not available.

This control is intentionally disabled because Full Screen Video
Mirror is not supported on GeForce 8 series GPUs. However, this
function may be added with the future driver updates.

It was forced upon them by Microsoft and their rules reagarding their DRM
system they built into windows. AMD/ATI chose not to cave to Microsoft but
Nvidia did.

Microsoft's Certified Output Protection Protocol (COPP)

what I want is to be able to:
- use email/newsgroups
- web surfing
- play tv/video in a window while sending video fullscreen on a
secondary monitor
- move files
- use Visual Studio 2008

so I have a perfect idea, and I know all can be done on different
OSes, using virtualization, my idea at the moment is that MacOs X is
the best solution even if the most expensive, that's why I would like
to discuss pro and con's with you

Be cautious about so-called Tech Support now days. These people are
generally Help Desk specialists (aka talking-heads) not real
technicians. They tend to give canned answers which MAY be
inaccurate.

Note the qualification is "on TV." The feature is likely still
available for conventional monitors using DVI connection.

oh no, I am sorry but unfortunately it's all true and stated on both
Nvidia and Microsoft official sites, they made an agreement to remove
the feature from all cards since 80xx and totally in Vista, a quick
search of "nvidia fullscreen mirror" will show you.

Answer is to move to ATI where it is called "theatre mode", very sad.

***

From Nvidia's knowledge base:

"Full Screen Video Mirroring is available for Geforce 7 series GPUs
and older series when using the NVIDIA Forceware display drivers
174.xx and below under Microsoft's Windows XP operating system.
Full Screen Video Mirroring is not supported for any NVIDIA based
GPU under Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system. Future
Release 177 drivers and above will no longer provide support for
Full Screen Video Mirroring for Geforce 7 GPUs and older GPUs.
Full Screen Video Mirroring will be directly accessably through
certain applications which will require this option."

FYI, video drivers are not the only thing taking a DRM hit from Microsoft..
You should read the VERSION.TXT files for C-Media's audio controllers.
Digital output is intentionally disabled in most cases.

I own an Nvidia 8800GTS on my older machine but run a pair of ATI 3870 OC
cards in my main Quad Corse system. It does full screen overlay just fine via
the S-video and HDMI outputs on the card. But my damn 8800GTS on my old Dual
Core system cannot due to this bullshit.
