View Full Version : TV-out on GeForce4 Ti 4600 w/HDTV

I have a MSI Ti4600 and a Toshiba 42" Cinema Series HDTV (at least I have them here in the store, not personally :). I am trying to get the TV-Out on the 4600 to look decent. When activated, the HDTV will display a picture at the proper size/aspect ration. HOWEVER, there is a very noticable pattern on the image. It is sort of a "checkerboard" effect that scrolls through the image. Does anyone know a way to fix this problem? I have tried 600x400, 640x480, and 800x600 resolutions, as they are all that are included in the drivers by default. I have read that you can alter the .ini to give custom resolutions that may work better than these. Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: The TV is hooked up to the card via a standard S-Video cable. Would moving to DVI (the TV natively supports DVI in) fix my problem?

Using DVI should make a huge difference.

don't most hdtv's have that RGB input that seperates, the red, green, blue, positive, and negative to five different inputs? if your hdtv has that option, go buy a hd-15 to rgb cable. that would be the most optimal.

I would buy a DVI-D Cable and connect the PC to the Toshiba wiht the HDCP DVI-D only connector.

Key is to get Powerstrip installed and get the HDTV timings set properly...

good luck.
