Hello all,
I was curious about using my TV out from my cheap ATI graphics card. It's a 3D Rage Pro with 16 megs.
When I have my monitor plugged into it the DVD playback is perfect. However I then plug my TV into the card via the SVideo and it to is fine UNTIL I try to play back a DVD and the TV goes black and that's that!
The DVD software I use is Power DVD which seems to work fine. Am I missing something out here? I'm a little niave about the tv out but thought it would be cool to use the facility.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cheers


Greg

Sounds like it's a resolution that thew card can't handle for TV-out. Check your settings in PowerDVD, see if you can force it to 640*480...
