hi all,after a recen format ive found that my tv out works when displaying pages etc, but when i try to output a movie file through any player, i see the player but no picture,using xp home with g-force fx
Why can i play my movies from ma pc and watch it on ma tv using the tv-out port? If your theory is right. The only thing i can think of is my anti-virus stuff turning things off so a virus cant exploit it n bugger ma system. That is if your theory is correct.
I have xp pro,g force 4 4200 gold plated and i use power dvd 5.
The simple fact is "most" graphics cards come with macrovision built into their chipsets which is designed to stop you from using your tv-out port for public display of anything that has macrovision protection. It's not a theory, it's a fact, The reason some cards work and some don't is probably down to driver versions. For a more detailed discussion on this click here
