Just got my PC with all of the hardware to display on the television. I have a NVidia GForce FX5200 video card and I am trying to connect to a HDTV compatible set (Samsung) with an SVideo cable. The displayed image is terrible no matter what adjustments I try to make. The edges are wavy and the image is bent at the top. Tried changing SVideo cables and the video card out but to no avail. Also tried to adjust screen resolution without success. I also tried using a VGA transcoder but the image seemed to jump too much. Am I using the wrong card to do this or is a CRT HDTV- Ready television incapable of displaying a computer image? I am worn out with this thing... :confused:

First of all, wrong forum :) . Try the HTPC forum, or the rear-projector forum. You're welcome here, but more people can answer your question over there.


Second, you really should use a VGA cable, not S-Video. When you plug an S-Video cable into your card, it probably locks the card to a 640x480 screen size because that's that SVideo takes.


It would help to mention the model number of Samsung TV, and what you're trying to display (Windows, DVD, game??)


Best of Luck

Woah dude, using TV out, via composite or s-video will always give you a crapola picture. Use RGB inputs if your set has them, or you will need to get component out somehow. Try the HTPC or crt tv forum, not the crt projector forum :)
