Hello,
Maybe you need to check the software settings for the tv capture card. It might be on a black/white setting instead of multicolor.

Thanks,
Lolita

You are either running NTSC into a Pal system or the other way around. Check the setup menu on the Virginmedia box to make sure what it's running, then make sure the TV card is running in the same format.

Hope that helps =)

TV tuner card will not display digital TV


And, unfortunately, it never will. TV tuners cards are almost exclusively an analog connection. You would need to convert the signal to analog using a secondary device, such as any of these:

http://www.google.com/search?q=512mb+xd+card&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#sclient=psy&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&biw=1920&bih=1073&tbs=shop:1&q=digital+converter+box&aq=0&aqi=g5&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&fp=84578a1e35ef3dc7

It will work pretty easily...set your TV tuner card to the appropriate channel as detailed in the converter's manual and you should be fine.

You could also see if your cable provider's box has any analog outputs (yellow red white or screw-on coax).

There is black and white distorted picture on my TV as secondary monitor


The reason that its black and white is that your graphics card is outputting the wrong video standard if your US you must put it in NTSC mode if its Australian or European you need to put it in PAL mode etc.. What country are you in? Also to change the video standard you often need to install the latest video driver for your card. What brand video card is it?

Monitor won't come on


Right this problem could be the result of a couple of possible faults, the first thing to do is rule out the cables. Try connecting your PC to a monitor using a different cable... check all the connections. Try connecting you PC to another monitor again... If you are still not getting a picture It sounds like you have a problem with your computer's graphics card - new graphics cards are fairly cheap and quite simple to install.

Connecting Laptop to LCD



the following connections available to connect ur computer to an TV:

S-Video output: If you have video card(external u will have this), you require an s-video cable and you connect s-video out of your computer to the s-video int of our TV.

TV-OUT: if you have video card(external u wil have this) you you require an coxial cable and you have to connect TV-out of your computer to TV-IN of our TV(it is place where cable connection goes from your cable operator)

DVI-D: if you have video card(external u will have this) you require an DVI-D cable you haveto connect DVI-D out of your computer(a white 15-pin port which looks like VGA port) ....

VGA: it is the port on your computer which is only used to connect to your computer but not to your TV or LCD(strictly)

Thanking you,
