Step by step how to enable svideo / tv on your nvidia videocard
Preparing the graphics card for TV Output.
The first step in configuring your graphics card for TV output is to first identify what type of tv output connection is available on your NVIDIA based graphics card. The video output jacks are located on the backside of the video cards mounting bracket. Once you have identified the TV out jack on your graphics card, check that your TV features the same type of video input. If your graphics card only has an S-Video jack for TV out but your TV only has composite inputs, then you may still connect your graphics card to the TV using an S-Video to composite adaptor. Aftermarket S-Video to composite adaptors can be purchased from major electronics retail stores or online. To get the best quality picture on your TV, do not use a cable longer than 12ft. in between your graphics card and TV. Check that you have connected the graphics card directly to your TV. If there is another device in between your TV and the graphics card (such as a VCR, switch box, satellite dish, receiver etc.) it will interfere with the graphic card's ability to properly detect the presence of your TV. This will result in the inability to select your TV as an output device from within Windows. To prevent this, please ensure that the graphics card is connected directly to your TV. After you have connected the appropriate cable from graphics card’s TV output to your TV's video input, you may turn on your PC.
Enabling TV Out
Once you have verified all the connections are properly setup, you may then proceed to enable TV out through the NVIDIA display properties control panel. The panel will differ slightly in appearance depending on whether you have an NVIDIA based graphics card that supports a single display or an NVIDIA based graphics card that can support dual displays.
1) Right-click on the Desktop and select Properties
2) Left-click on the tab labeled Settings. Then left-click on the Advanced button.
3) This will bring up the Advanced Properties. Left-click on the tab corresponding to the graphics card that is installed in your PC. For example, if you have a GeforceFX 5800 Ultra graphics card, you will click on the tab labeled "GeforceFX 5800 Ultra". A window will pop up to the left of this panel. From this left side window, select nView Display Mode.
4) You should then see a panel similar to the one above. If you are using a single display video card, left-click the "Current Display" drop down menu and choose "TV". Then click on the "Apply button to confirm the change.
5) If you are using a dual display video card, left-click over the "nView Modes" drop down menu and then select "Clone Mode". Then left-click over the "Display Pair" drop down menu and choose your monitor configuration (i.e. if you are using an analog CRT monitor plus TV, select "Analog Display + TV"). Then select the "Apply button.
6) You should now see the display on your TV. A confirmation window will pop up prompting you to confirm the changes made. Select Yes to keep these settings. Otherwise, the display will revert back to your previous settings.
