Default Re: 9631 tv-out screen flicker

So, has there been any movement on this issue - I really want to get this working, 'cos I want a nice XGL interface in the livingroom but this damn interlace flicker is too much. Again, going back to older driver (887, I think) fixes the problem but I then lose AIGLX...

Help!

Hi,
Just a "me too"... I have terrible flickering and tearing when using 9631 and TV-out on my MX440. Interlace handling was rock solid on previous versions of the driver.

Is there a bug tracking url where we can track what is happening with this issue ?

Is there a specific version NVidia recommend as a temporary work around until this
issue is addressed ?

Any help/thoughts much appreciated.

Cheers,

Doug

No bugs are open, as I'm still waiting for someone to provide the information that I requested 4 months ago.

The problem does not require any particular content or any video content at all and presents itself with menus drawn by the desktop environment or mythtv menus which are not even related to having content to display.

EDIT: The flicker exists during playback, in the MythTV menus and also while running fluxbox with an rxvt.
fluxbox is a window manager like KDE or Gnome. It sounds like interlacing artifacts.
I don't believe that the nvidia linux driver can output correct HDTV resolutions and am working out writing a post of my own. For now I thought I'd at least try to help clarify.

I've not seen this behavior with 1.0-9631 and the NV17 cards that I have here.

Hi Netlama,

My card is identified as an NV18, obviously there is an issue with 1.0-9631 as about 8 different users have stated. For me it occurs when I display any video via tv-out and is especially noticable when watching sport with fast left to right movement.

My MX440 card is identified by the X server (7.0) as:

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x] rev 162

That is, it's an NV18 not an NV17.

Hope that helps...

Cheers,

Doug

I have a NV17 card (Geforce4 440go) with the NVIDIA TV encoder and I too have experienced similar problems with TVout and 9631. I would describe it as the TV displaying in a low resolution mode. Looking at tv registers with nvtv, the display appears to be set to 1024x768 (as it should), but the picture looks as if the display is set to about 640x480 or worse.

After Netllama's post I thought the problem may be a Kernel or X problem and I tried an 2.4 kernel and XFree86. Same problems as with my standard 2.6.17 and Xorg 7.1.1 set up. I cannot find a more recent Video BIOS (it's from about 2003) to try on my notebook and have no time at the moment to experiment with a more recent kernel or X Windows.

The last driver that works for me is 8776.
I hope this information helps.

This is still clearly a problem in 9639, and netllama is obviously not going to try to help us. Hurrah for the proprietary software model.

Anyone know the official procedure for reporting a bug to Nvidia? Or how to contact netllama's supervisor?

As I stated earlier, I attempted to reproduce this and could not. Its not clear to me what additional help you're expecting if I cannot reproduce the problem you're reporting. If you'd like further progress, please provide me with a system which reproduces this problem.

Thanks,
Lonni

start another thread
report the bug to the linux distributions using it, etc...

and/or simply be patient.

Despite his attitude i don't think netllama is really the culprit. If he has passed the bug to the developpers, it should be matter of time.

btw, Nvidia should opensource the drivers of the cards they plan not to support anymore.

aren't you from "NVidia Corporation" ?
aren't you able to find the same kind of card we've all been having issues with the last legacy driver ?

I'm also starting to think you're not willing to help at all. (or simply can't help)
