Smile My most humble apologies for not responding sooner.

Basically I found 800 x 600 was the max I could get. Xorg did not work at all. A great deal of difference and clarity came from adjusting the TV settings.

It may be different using PAL and NTSC

I think experimenting is the way forward and you seem to be doing well.

I will do more experiments in the future and report back. Sorry can not be of more help Smile

Good news ...I Got it working with xorg and svideo see previous post.

Just a recap tvout now working with Svideo with
2.16.1 with nvidia pup installed, works on pal,or ntsc ( multisytem TV.)

It really is a lot better picture with Xorg in combo with svideo.

ohyes,
the diference between nv and nvidia is that nv are open source drivers for nvidia cards, nvidia are the proprietary drivers from Nvidia, so that would axplain why it works better.

Ahh OK Thx gdemonta

What is not known ...yet. is how do we end up using one and not the other, we didnt get a choice to say which one to use, Im assuming we installed both.

BTW I installed the newer driver 9xxx from the pup.

Before I forget, it was really helpful to use the 'installnvidia' script at the prompt when either editing xorg.conf and or trying the edited config by starting xorg & xwindows.
