geforce mx200 tv out problem in XP

  Emperor Penguin 15:46 25 Jan 2004

I am trying to use the tv out feature in XP but the option does not appear in the settings tab. i am using both ME and XP on the same computer and have sucessfully got tv out to work with ME but can see no way to get XP to recognise that this feature is available to it. there is only one monitor icon showing and i read somewhere that there should be two although i am not sure if this is even relevant since i want to use tv out and not a second monitor.

that has worked, tv out is now working but now there is another problem. Power DVD and windows media player show up on the tv but with no picture, or rather a dark purple background instead of the movie which is playing on the monitor version.

use the latest drivers for your card and.

click start/control panel/settings

click screen 2 and tick the "extend my desktop to this monitor" box.apply/ok.

start up powerdvd etc and play your movie windowed.(not full screen)on your monitor.

drag the window from the monitor to the telly screen and then maximize it.
