Hello all,

First of all I would like to Thank everyone here for the wonderful posts and articles.

With that said, thanks to all of you, I found myself building an HTPC for myself and after many nights of reading the forums and the core2duo motherbord list thread a 100 times...I've managed to put this HTPC together:

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300
2GB DDR2 Gskill
500GB Samsung HDD
Gigabyte P35-DS3L
MSI NX8600GT

The problem I am having now and I've been trying to work around this for hours...my MSI Card has Dual DVI out and a Component/S-Video out. The TV I'm trying to plug into does not have DVI so I have tried S-Video and Component. Nothing is displaying on the TV on either one. I suspect it has something to do with the graphics card or something...when I go into the Nvida Control Panel, the only thing that shows up is my monitor and there is no way to change the output connector (only shows DVI). I have attached or uploaded the screeny for this.

Not sure if this makes a difference or not, but I downloaded the lastest drivers from Nvidia and did not use the MSI software since I heard a lot of bad things about it.

If anyone has any idea, please help me.

Thanks in advance.
