  1. Hello Hello,

    Sigh . . . here I go again . . . more problems . . .


    Exactly 4 days ago . . . my TV-OUT on my gfx card was working great. I am using a nVidia tnt2 m64 32mbram svideo tvout. I am using Windows XP pro.

    Changes in Computer from day 4 to presant:
    - installed dvd decoder card (creative dvd decoder dxr 2)
    - installed dvd-rom 2x drive (creative dvd-rom 2x)
    - moved the computer around . . . i guess
    - attempted to use tv-out on dvd decoder card
    - installed Virtual Tennis
    - anything else ? i don't think so . . .

    Actions took after realizing that my tv-out is missing:
    - tried updating det. drivers
    - tried uninstalling drivers and installing again (but everytime i do that, when restarting windows just detects it again . . )
    - tried bombing the det drivers with Detonator Destroyer
    - partioned drive . . . move important data to new secondary
    - reformated main partion
    - reinstalled windows xp o/s
    - brought back files over
    - merged partions . . .

    Still, the tv-out does not work. Does anyone recommend anything else ? I know my wallet is all empty . . . I really want tv-out . . . because this computer is acting as my console system. Are there any stand alone tv-out pci cards ? I am happy with my gfx card already . . . Should I just look and get a new gfx card w/ tvout ?

    Thanks,
    TRUFFLES
