Question Trying to get MSI FX5500 to Display on TV




Hi there I am new to linux . I have SUSE 9.2 and have a MSI NVIDEA FX5500 TD256 8X AGP Graphics card and it is working great I have 3d desktop working the 3D games work. I have used Yast to update the latest Driver for it. The card has three out puts one for the monitor one is S-video and the other has an adapter to allow a second monitor. I have the main monitor setup and have an adapter to the S-Video going to my VCR, as well I have my sound card fed into the VCR too. Then from the VCR to the TV. I have had my TV displaying before with a ATI card and am trying to do it in the same way. The last time I did this was in windows XP. I have gone into Yast to set up duel displays but it will not allow or see the TV. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Mara and Linux.tar.gz

I followed the link you put up Linux.tar.gz I added it and will try it in a little I have to Waite for a download. How ever I am thinking that the PAL will not work as I am in Canada but the rest Should... and if it works the worst is it will be flickering but I will see that the out put is being sent to the TV

I tried: Still need help

Well I tried what was down there and it did give me the option to setup but it did not work .
then I made the mistake of re-probing it and it went back to how is was before. I will try it again but I think I am still missing something for it.

This is part of my Config:

All seem ok.
Try change the last line:

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5500"
BusID "2:0:0"
Driver "nvidia" <--------------change nvidia to vesa or vga
