Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
Each computer that has a video card has software that comes with that card. The exact program is going to depend on the exact model # of your computer and the type of video card that you have - if you tell me the model # and video card information, I can get more specific with you. Unless you have disabled it, most video card software loads on startup - double-check your taskbar on the lower right-hand side of your computer screen, and see if one of the items says something about graphics (my video card software, for instance, is Intel Extreme Graphics 2). Open up that program, and change the "refresh rate" to 60 Hz, and see if the flickering disappears. In your case, the TV card that you have might have its own software that will allow you to change the refresh rate.
There is another possible alternative if you are having trouble finding your video card software. On the Windows desktop: Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Appearances and Themes --> Display --> Settings --> Advanced --> Monitor --> change the refresh rate to 60 Hz.
60 Hz works in most cases. Double check the documentation for your TV card software, because it may reccomend another number.
If you tell me the video card software that you have, and the manufacturer and the model # of your TV card, I may be able to get more specific, but I think this at least has a chance of solving the problem.
