New nvidia drivers don't detect the TV?

  1. Hey guys, i have a problem with my 8800 driver,
    in the version before the 163.44 and .69 i was able to use my TV
    as a second display but now I can't, it just simply won't recognize the TV.

    I'm using a regular composite cable through the Green output from the RGB cable that came with the card. (this settings worked before the newer drivers, which I need to play Bioshock, lost planet, and the upcoming crysis demo).

    is anyone else having this problem?


    thanks

    What happens when you revert back to the older working drivers?

    ... And you are located "around the Net" starting from where?

    It won't mess up anything, but it might fix your TV problem

    i just got back home..
    problem is, im playing lost planet and bioshock and the new drivers do better performance/less buggier gameplay

    and i would rather play better than use the tv as a secondary monitor...
    but theres nothing like good ol' frets on fire from my bed :)
