    Does anyone know how to get the svideo out from the card to work?

    go throught the NVidia advanced settings

    Right Click the desktop >Properties > Settings > Advanced then hunt around

    Also hunt around in any "video utility" programs that might be running in
    your sys tray (bottom right of desktop)

    Okay, when not using Windows, but a high performance-system:

    Check your system / distribution for a file named nvwsitch or nvtv
    The syntax to fire up a tv-capable setting is:

    nvtv -t -r 768,576 -s Huge -X
    ( PAL )

    nvtv -t -r 720,480 -s Huge -X
    ( NTSC )

    I don't know exactly the maximum safe settings for NTSC. Probably a bit more
    than what I use on my tiny monitor.

    When going back to Monitor, you type:
    nvtv -m -r 1024,768 -X
    ( 1024,768 being my preferred resolution )

    My Script to loook and DVD's on my TV is like this:

    nvtv -t -r 768,576 -s Huge -X &
    ogle -u cli
    nvtv -m -r 1024,768 -X

    Works nice and reliable, upon finishing DVD the display is automatically
    restored to the monitor.
