I have recently started watching DVD's on the television via my PC. Everything is fine untill the action scenes, when a horizontal line appears halfway down the screen and the picture becomes slightly jerky. I suspect the graphics card is having trouble keeping up with the amount of information being fed to it. Which probably means that I don't have it configured correctly or the card is just not up to the job. It is an "nVIDEA GeForce4 MX 440SE" which came preinstalled.I would appreciate any advice on correct setup or whether I should upgrade (nothing too costly please) Thanks
Thanks guys, You're right, I don't have the latest driver (doh!). I've downloaded 18.104.22.168 which seems to be the latest. Haven't time to try it right now, but I'll give it a go later today. Keep you informed, Cheers
I've tried the new driver, had a few problems though... wish I'd seen your last reply "rickf". Had a few glitches, evetually had to uninstall then reinstall the new driver. It seems to have a few more features, but hasn't solved the problem. The only remedy I can find is to reduce "Color quality" to 16 bit in "Display Settings"... Maybe I should have tried this first, but is it normal to have to reduce Colour quality? By the way, can't use TV with Windows Media Player, only Power DVD. Think my setup must be a bit adrift!
Hi sil_ver (I'm trying hard to resist the obvious Lone Ranger reference) WMP is my default player but it just wont play DVD's on my TV, plays OK on PC monitor, but nothing on the TV, where as Power DVD...no problem, apart from the horizontal line, so I suppose I'll have to stick with 16bit...or buy a dedicated DVD player.
