TV as Monitor

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a NVidia 6200. I also got a cable that plugs into the normal monitor outout on my Graphics card and then goes into the Component Input on my TV. When I turn it all on I get 6 little shots of what should appear all fuzzy and scrolling. My tele is just a normal LG with a component in.

uh.. a normal televisons resolution is so extremely low you wont get anything resembling a video picture you would recognize.

Even a 1080P HDTV wont look right if you are used to higher resolutions..

its definetely possible, just make sure you have an HD tv, LCD HDTV is the best for this, still not recommended tho. most LCD Tv's have a s-video port, and so should a standard gpu, just plug the 2 together.

PAL-b here in the nl, 720x576 italy 576x576...... its not that bad
put your resolution down to 800x600,.......if it is still unreadable, to 640x480..or make your letters bigger, (customize desktop in the display control panel)

thats true.......but it is also the input on the tv you use....if there only came a scart signal out of the pc, the image would be very steady, and readable up to 800x600......
