TV Out: Can't view on TV and monitor at same time

  oo7juk 21:15 10 Jun 2003

Connected up my TV out so that I can watch DVD's on my TV via my PC but the picture switches to the TV only and my monitor goes blank. My PC is in the other room so I can't see what I'm doing. Any ideas, many thanks.

Which version of windows and video card?

  oo7juk 21:39 10 Jun 2003

Windows XP and the card is a Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model64/Model64Pro.

This any help? - for Win98 but probably the same.

Dont look like you will be able to use both at the same time. Think this feature was only avalible on the Geforce 4 and above. I cant get it to work on my Geoforce 3 ti200 at the same time.

I just use my Detonator drivers and use the nView facility.

If you have 'twinview' in the software, it should work. Have the TV connected and switched on (to the appropriate channel) before you do the settings.

I don't have twinview, can I download it? Is there any other ways of doing it.

Did you check the link in my previous post to see if your software is the same?

suggest you download the latest driver for your video card from click here
you can then use twin view and clone your screen

this is the route
clone>apply settings and agree to keep settings before 15 sec limit

also you will need to plug you sound card into your tv some how (argos do a handy pack of tv connectors)

Yeah, don't have that software.
