[solved] 9500-GT with 173.14.12, TV out ?
 
I've got a Zotac 9500-GT (with fan) and can not get the TV output working.
TV is well detected (Windows XP or Linux with latest NVidia official drivers) but I got a black screen !

Please, can someone tell me what to do to have TV output working ??

My TV is a CRT plugged with a Composite/SVideo adapter on Svideo of the Component output cable. It was working very good with my (dead) MSI 8600-GT, with the same type of cable.

So :
Code:

GPU #0:
  Name      : GeForce 9500 GT
  PCI BusID : PCI:1:0:0

  Number of Display Devices: 2

  Display Device 0 (TV-0):
    No EDID information available.

  Display Device 1 (DFP-0):
    EDID Name            : ViewSonic VX2025wm
    Minimum HorizSync    : 30.000 kHz
    Maximum HorizSync    : 82.000 kHz
    Minimum VertRefresh  : 50 Hz
    Maximum VertRefresh  : 75 Hz
    Maximum PixelClock    : 170.000 MHz
    Maximum Width        : 1680 pixels

Ok, I've found the trick !!!!!!

Just plug a tiny and very slim wire into two pins used by S-VIDEO, on HDTV output of the graphic card.

Plug the wire into pins 3 and 4.
Plug you HDTV component/svideo cable to the card.
Plug your composite cable into the blue female of component.
Enjoy.

I have just tried with Twinview, it works.

I am using Galaxy 9500-GT and neither can I get TV-output working. I find that nvidia-settings cannot detect any TV connected.

Using the same cable and xorg.conf, my 6200 work perfectly. Any help?
