Default Re: Ti-4200 Tvout (phillips 7104)

Here is mine as of this moment, you may have some problems with the nvidia documentation as it seems nvidia didn't read up too much on tv formats, and changed their syntax around without telling anybody. Namely the Hz for NTSC-M is 59.94, not 60 as they imply.... 60 was designed for black and white... Thus giving you a friendly vertical scrolling bar with color. (nvidia documentors are little behind the times I guess.... well, looking at the computer industry... nobody seems to knows it should be 59.94 exept somebody like me who has a roomate who works for a broadcast television company we all know. I believe MS has their generic TV drivers set to 60 also.)

Also, "ConnectedMonitor" responds to "CRT;TV", not "CRT,TV" as they imply. (I just guessed that one, it used to work like the document says, but not anymore)

With this configuration i switch between tv and monitor by doing a cntrl alt + or -
Main thing to change is the meta modes for your resolutions.

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
        BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
        #Option "RenderAccel" "1"
        Option "Twinview" "True"
        Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP"
        Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,null; null,800x600"
        Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
        Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
        Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "59.94"
        Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
        Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT;TV"
        Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        #Option "TVOverScan" "0.6"
