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.

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?

Yeah, don't have that software.

Tried that, all it done was remove the function of selecting TV (the device selection tab).
