help configuring my card

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone got an odd situation that's got me stuck.

I am running my 8600GT out to my HDTV using the HDTV adapter. (this is basically an s-video to component adapter)
So the card is sending it's signal out of it's s-video slot.

Anyway, whenever I apply the driver for my card, by default the card begins sending it's signal out of it's DVI slot and nothing to it's s-video slot.

The problem is my HDTV only uses component, and currently I don't have a DVI capable monitor. So I have no way to configure the card to display graphics only out of the s-video slot.

My only choices are:
1. delete the driver and go back to windows standard VGA driver.
(I'm doing this now and I hate it)
2. See nothing on the screen.

Any ideas?
