Default TV-Out - RH 9

Was just wondering, after I've installed the driver I should be able to just hook up a svideo cable to the card and a tv and it should be there, right? The card is a GeForce 2 GTS 32MB.. Or is there something else I need to configure, edit, etc. i order to get it to work..

Thanks..

There is are two applications for this sort of thing.
The first is called nvtv, and the second Yanc. (yet another nvidia configurator) While I have nvtv, it is supposed to work fairly well. I am having difficulty with Yanc right now, but it should work fine with your card, (it doesn't with mine, a geforcefx 5900)

Default XF86Config

How about your /etc/X11/XF86Config ?

I guess you need some serious configuration work there, or does this Yanc / nvtv tool do the job?

As far as I know, it does. But not having messed with it much, I may be wrong. Have you tried to simply plug your tv in to your computer? Yanc and nvtv are mainly for config, and or trouble shooting (ie push every combination of buttons until it works right) I think the nvidia driver automatically scans for connected tvs and lcds at startup.
Just plug in your tv and see if it works. Remeber, the best way to learn how to do somthing is experimentation

Hope this helps
