Ok i have a nVidia GeForce 3 64mb ddr card, and im trying to get the driver software to recognize a S-video->RCA adaptor (that is connected to a tv) so i can have video out for a video project im doing.  When i go into the nVidia advanced settings, then to "Device Selection", i can click the "Detect displays" Button, but it doesn't see it.  Is this due to the adaptor, and is there a way around this??  Help please!

Is the TV on and set to receive a signal from the composite (RCA) connector?  If so, have you tried updating your drivers to the latest WHQL version from www.nvidia.com?

Oh, if you can't get it with that...there is a program called TVTool (www.tvtool.de/index_e.htm I believe) which may help you.

Your TV must be connected and running in AV mode, after that select TV out option from Device Selection menu.

This seems to be a quirk with some TV sets/connectors. It also happens with SVideo-SCART on some older TVs.

If you cant get the NView application to detect the display TVTool is the easiest option as it allows you to force output regardless of display detection.

Another option - try unplugging your monitor and booting up with just the TV on the SVideo-RCA connection.
