Default flicker in picture. Tv out.


When playing a DivX movie or other movies
on my Tv set (Sharp 28HW-53E), the picture flickers or is jerky, when there is some movement in the screen.

My graphics card is a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 from

I had the exact same problem when I had
a Geforce 2MX and an old Tv with Scart.
On my Sharp I connect using both S-video from the Geforce4, and the S-video in in the
front panel.

I'm using TwinView, and I notice that the
flicker in the picture is also present on my monitor. I have also tried Tv-out in Windows, with the same result.

Waching a movie on my monitor without connecting a TV is perfectly fine.

This problem has really bothered me for
a long time, and was part of the reason why I upgraded to a Geforce 4.
Could a low-quality S-video cable produce
such a result ?

I have included my XF86Config below:

Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "800x600,800x600;1280x1024,NULL"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
