TV-out problem with Radeon 9000

  1. Hi,
    I have a problem connecting my new Radeon 9000 to my TV. The TV is connected to the card by the S-VHS-Cinch cable, that was delivered with the card. When booting I do see bios-information on both screens, monitor and TV, but when windows (win98) starts, the TV turns black and there's only some flickering sometimes.
    In display->settings->advanced->Displays option I have a red cross for my tv-out. I already installed the latest drivers and directx9, but it didn`t help anything.
    Anyone any idea what to do?

    It sounds like windows isn't making the connection to the TV properly. Have you tried using RCA outs? I know it will show the red X if you don't have a proper connection to the TV, or no connection at all. Try the RCA and then post back.

    BTW, :wave: :wave: Welcome to TechSpot :wave: :wave:

    Check TV-out settings - have you selected the right connector and TV format (PAL/SECAM/NTSC) ?

    No RCA out, no TV settings

    Thanks for your answers, but
    I can't try the RCA out because there's isn't one. The card has a DVI-I, a VGA and a S-VHS output.
    And I can't access the TV settings, because the TV settings box is greyed out.
