View Full Version : Question about TV out for 3.4

05-12-2004, 12:21 AM
The last time the TV out function worked for me was using the the 3.2 build of Knoppix that was released on 06/06/2003..."If Im not mistaken on the date".
every other build seems to scramble my TV monitor making it un-viewible.
I have tryed the cheat codes listed in the doc section "fb800x600" and "knoppix -txt xvrefresh=60" and xmodule=nv also xmodule=nvidia
with no success. There is even an option in the kde menu under system/tools/ I believe for TV out, but it just idles and finally dies.
Using 3.2 I never had to do anything special the auto detect would configure the hardware off the live-cd and it seemed to work quite well. Infact when even I need the additional screen thats the version I turn to. I would however like to have that option using the latest build of 3.4 released on 5/10/04. I'm just curious what has changed from that distro that would cause it not to work. Perhaps there's a cheat code I am over looking? FYI I could care less about 3d support, If I was going to play games I would most likely use Morphix's Game CD, But the TV out function is something I really miss. If anyone has any input as to what may be causeing the problem and what steps could be taken to reslove this issue I would very much appreciate it. Please see my system specs below. Thankyou.
