As i wrote, i've tried the latest 173 driver and it works so far.

I have two TVs and i've got the same behavior (no signal when X start) with both.

I've also tested two TVs with the same problem. One was through an S-Video to coaxial adapter and the other directly to the TV.

Downgrade xorg to 1.6.xx and check again with 180.60 driver along with the patch for newer kernerls that you can get from these forums.

best regards

Default Re: TV out useless after debian squeeze upgrade

Today i've tried my laptop, that owns a svideo out too, if it would work with the tv, cable and the adaptor. no problem at all! At the laptop i've installed debian lenny, it have a 7200 GO and the current 195 driver installed. additionally i've tested a svideo to coaxial adaptor. With the laptop out of the box, at the 9300GS didn't change it anything.

greetings

Well I wonder whats unique about our systems that causes this bug. It cant be happening to everyone with a Geforce 9 or this thread would be more popular and danix would have been able to reproduce it. There seems to be just a handful of us with the exact same issue.

Default Re: TV out useless after debian squeeze upgrade

Just want to confirm that I see this too, using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic amd64... and Windows 7!

My setup is: Geforce 9500GT --> 7-pin-to-component adapter --> composite cable attached to the "blue" output --> TV

I'm currently using the 173.14.20 driver under Ubuntu, which works. Under Windows, I think it's the 180 series driver, which also works.

Stepping up to the 185 series driver on either OS, and it would display the boot screens, then go blank. The 190 and 195 series drivers didn't help.

I tried all sorts of tweaks to Xorg.conf - the usual things like setting the TV type and such, disabling TwinView, etc. I think the issue was, the TV encoder chip wasn't detecting the connected TV. It thought there was nothing there. This was in Xorg.0.log.

Perhaps this helps?

Calroth, after you mentioned that you have this bug in Windows I tried my own windows 7 install and, yep, the bugs there for me too. Pretty much as you say, on windows 7 the 181.71 will detect the tv but anything later won't.

I have the same tv detection problem using the following card:

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G94 [GeForce 9600 GT] (rev a1)

Mine is a Galaxy GF9500GT PCI-E 1GB DDR2 128bit w/HDTV/Dual DVI (got that from the box).

I see where this is going and I'm not sure that I like it...

My reasoning here is, if we find out it's only Galaxies, maybe the Nvidia devs can test with one and find the problem. I would like to think we wouldn't be SOL considering it's obviously some change in the way the TVs are detected in the driver due to the older versions working for us.
