bad picture quality on tv-out from Nvidia Geforce 5200
The picture quality on the tv out of my Geforce 5200 is kind of bad for 2 reasons.
The first is kind of hard to explain. Its like there is a ghost picture of water ripples continually flowing from the bottom left-hand corner of my tv set to the top right conner. The ripples are very straight and are completely regular, which makes me think that the distortion isn't interference in the s-video cable, but rather a problem with my Geforce 5200 (wiggling the cable doesn't change the distortion). On the other hand, sometimes the ripples gradually reverse and start moving in the exact opposite direction.
My other problem is that I can sometimes see a vertical line moving from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen when I'm watching a movie with a lot of motion in it. I'm almost sure that it's a refresh line because it looks like below the tv is displaying a new frame, and above it it is displaying an old frame. Or maybe it's the other way around, it moves so fast it's hard to tell. Anyway I was wondering, is it possible for me to up the refresh rate on my tv or something to make the line invisible or something? I would just start messing with the rates, but I've heard one can break one's tv that way. Here's a piece of my xorg.conf:
If I'm not explaining this thoroughly, let me know and I'll try to post a picture of my tv screen.
Any help would be much appreciated, Jared
