S-Video problem
    #4645391 - 09/11/05 11:50 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My cousin just got an extra TV and was using it for s-video, but he gets a shitty picture quality. His card is a 9600XT. We thought it was the cable at first so I gave him the s-video cable that came with my card, but it didn't help.

Is there any software that can fix this?

No. You'll get 640x480 coming from S-Video to the tv which looks like shit compared to the probably much higher resolution of your computer.

I would think that it's the TV instead of the card or the cable. The TV is probably limited to a low resolution especially if it's an older TV. Computer monitors can use a higher resolution than most tv's which is why computer information looks crappy on tv's.

1024x768 is the max supported by the TV. Anything less than that and the whole screen doesn't fit on the TV. So you think a new TV would look better???

Unless it's an hdtv you're not getting 1024x768. Maximum resolution supported on a non hdtv is 640x480.

Using windows on a TV is pointless, for my S-video out I only use it for playing movies, thats all you can really do, like somebody said in a post above TV has horrible resolution unless it's HD. However normal video looks fine.

Not sure if you have Nvidia or ATI but ATI has a nice overlay section where you can tweak video output display, I use theater mode with same on all. Also make sure you are using NTSC for output TV display.

Yeah I ran a S Video to my 36" TV; I couldn't do shit other than play DIVX (which looked DVD perfect) but anything else was terrible...forget Iming, or web browsing, or even trying to find the movie on the desktop  :frown:
