  1. I recently purchased a mx440 video card for the express purpose of watching my dvd's from computer to tv. I can either get it to work on the tv or on the monitor, but not both. Also it come in in black and white only, help please

    Are you still having trouble on your tv-out? one that I have found is making sure the OS is updated completly, then grabbing the latest detonators from nvidia. Also make sure you have the latest Direct X as that will help as well. .....As you running the signla through a S-video cable I assume to your tv?

    I have been able to get the "clone" setting to work on the tv set, but when I play a movie or dvd, it shows the skin for the program I am using, but not the actual dvd movie.

    Are you running it through a vcr first? If you are don't. DVD's have to go directly to the tv - they don't like running through other things first.

    no it's running straight to the tv. Any other program works fine. Even Kazaa movies work fine. It's just if I play a dvd, or if I play a downloaded movie thru Real Player. The program skin comes up, but the screen remains blank.

    That sounds like overlay problem. You could try disabling video hardware acceleration (I don't remember where, though) and/or lower the screen resolution/color depth.

    ... but now as I'm reading this thread more closely, I don't see which operating system you're running.

    yo. If it only happens with Real Player, use Windows Media Player. I personally hate Real, their software is terrible. Think WMA, simple and easy. ;)
