Radeon 9700 and 9800 PRO TV-Out problems

  1. Hi.
    A while ago my Crucial Radeon 9700 Pro started acting up while in tv-out.
    The screen was flickering and the colors got distorted.

    I sent it back to where I bought it and they sent me a new Crucial 9800 Pro... it worked for about a day until the very same error occured.

    Does anyone know what can be the problem?

    This is for tiger:

    I have the 9800 Pro All-in-wonder. Make sure you run the TV settings wizard that comes bundled with the tv tuner program, installing just the Catalyst drivers won't do. Also, make sure you select the correct TV signal format, If you're not in the US it will most likely be something other than NTSC. Hope this helps.
