I thought that the RMA that I installed today was doing good, until I noticed that there was no output to the TV. Actually, there was, but only in random wavy lines. I checked the connections and found one loose, so I tightened it. At first that appeared to do the job, because the TV did show the BIOS screens, but when Windows booted, there was only a black screen.

I fiddled with the Nvidia Control Panel, and had to force detection, and now I have the wavy lines back. Since the video card is the only new item involved, it would appear that it is the problem...but is it?

Apparently the video card is not the problem, because I rebooted out of x64 into MCE and the TV now displays properly. I noticed that in x64 it shows the TV as HDTV, which it is not. I do have an HDTV tuner, but it shouldn't be seeing that. In MCE it shows it simply as a TV as it always did in the past. How do I get x64 to do the same?

Problem solved...half way. X64 does not like 175.16, I went back to 169.21 and the TV is now working as it should.
