VIsta Media Center and Comcast Digital

Hi.
I just got a new HP media center with 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT DVI-I, HDMI.
I also have comcast HD digital setup box.
I connected the setup box to the svideo in plug in the media center. Although I can watch TV, the signal is definitly not HD quality. When I switch back to watch it through component directly to the TV I get the HD quality of the channels.

Anyone know hw to connect media center pc to comcast HD digital service?

Nechmads,
The s video connection is not a digital signal, it is analog.
This should help you get what you need to set it up.

0x117 Nvidia Timeout Driver Restart


Hi there.
I suggest you make sure that you are running the latest diplay drivers for your GT240.
You can get them at the Nvidia download center here.

Just select the following from the drop-down boxes.
Product Type: GeForce
Product Series: GeForce 200 Series
Product: GeForce GTS 240
Operating System: Your current operating system.
Language: The language that you want the setup to be in.

Then click the search button.
Click download on the next page. Once downloaded, run the setup and it will install the driver. You will need to restart to finish the process.

If it is connected it will come loose. I believe it is for the cooling fan on the card. Be careful with pulling it out it is just a two part deal. You may pull the plug but it will also come off maybe in two pieces or one whole piece. Whichever it will come off. Give it some pulling. John

    This is a very common problem with nVidia geforce 8400 and 8600 cards.
    Serach google with this "Defective Nvidia geforce card" and you will see lots of user facing same problem in HP, Dell etc..

    I too have an Hp laptop with nvidia geforce 8400. I have faced similar problems(screen got divided into 8 parts) in past for 3 times. Every time I have to replace my motherboard at HP service center.... It is caused by overheating of laptop that destroys the nvidia graphic card.
    Go to the service Center and ask for a motherboard replacement.
    hope this will help.....
