Re: Nvidia 8500 secondary screen tearing
Just reporting that I updated to Jaunty hoping it would fix this issue. Now I'm using VLC 0.9.4, Nvidia driver 180.44 and Ubuntu 9.04 64bit. But no luck yet. Tearing is still big issue on secondary screen. Not with main screen. And yes, I still have vblack sync enabled for both screens and both screens are using same refresh rate.
As far as I know, anyone hasn't managed yet to get this to work properly. I have been googling a lot, and I haven't seen any success reports. But multiple problem reports.
It seems that it's just better to get used to tearing. It's not a major issue, but it's still very annoying.
