How do I get S-Video out to work on my TV using an RF modulator

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by kalyani.gopalan, Jan 27, 2006.

  1. I have a 3D fuzion Graphics card with the nvidia software.
    I am trying to connect my computer to my tv and since my tv doesnt have
    a s-video input, i am using a GE RF modulator. I have set the settings
    in the nvidia to clone so i can see the display in both the tv and the

    The RF Mod will light up when its receiving a signal from the S-Video.
    At first, it would show my the initial boot up of the computer, right
    up until it gave the blue welcome to windows XP screen. Then nothing.
    The light turns off, meaning the RD mod is no longer getting a signal
    from the computer.

    Does any one know how i can fix this?

    Try reducing your desktop resolution if set above 800x600, and ensure on
    the "clone" monitor you use an appropriate refresh rate. Sounds like
    you're sending a signal into the modulator that's too much for your
    screen or for the modulator.

    Good luck,

  3. Thanks for replying.
    I set my desktop resolution to 800x600 and screen refresh rate to 60
    hertz and restarted a couple of times, i also tried at 72 hertz. do you
    know what would be the appropriate refresh rate for this?

    Only other thing I can suggest is in the Geforce display settings make
    sure your display is seen as a TV and not as a monitor - try force TV
    Detection to ensure this.

    Beyond this I'm stuck, sorry!
