How to record to video from the TV Out port

Hi,

We have an Nvidia GeForce 2MX 64Mb video card with TV out.

Can this record from computer files to video VCR tape?

All attempts at this (with VCR set AUX and cbles set in the right ports, both using RCA Vidoe cables) just resulted in a black screen.

(this would be PAL, we are in Australia which uses PAL & assume the card is set up for PAL standard).

all the best

Alex

You SHOULD be able to do it, however you must have something set wrong. If you plug it into your TV do you see an image?

Have you verified that your card is sending a PAL signal (I only ask because you said "assume" above).

BTW, was it a PAL/NTSC issue?  Just wondering, since you accepted my answer that was suggesting such an incompatibility.

Cheers,
