S-video not detecting my tv.


I'm using a GeForce 6200 AGP with 195.36.15 drivers and I can't get s-video to detect my TV in Slackware 13. I did some things I got linked to in Google but none of them worked but here are the results.

bash-3.1$ xrandr --output S-video --set load_detection 1
X Error of failed request: BadRROutput (invalid Output parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 151 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 15 (RRGetOutputProperty)
Serial number of failed request: 19
Current serial number in output stream: 19

bash-3.1$ xrandr --output S-video --set tv_standard ntsc
X Error of failed request: BadRROutput (invalid Output parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 151 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 15 (RRGetOutputProperty)
Serial number of failed request: 19
Current serial number in output stream: 19

I don't know what any of this means. I tried to do 'Detect Displays' numerous times in nvidia-settings and I get nothing.

http://pastebin.com/6asWa5Jx <- Here is my xorg.conf if it's ever needed.

And here is some results from just doing xrandr.

bash-3.1$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1600 x 1200, maximum 1600 x 1200
default connected 1600x1200+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1600x1200 50.0* 63.0
1024x768 51.0 63.0
800x600 52.0 57.0
640x480 53.0 59.0
1400x1050 54.0
1280x1024 55.0
1280x960 56.0
640x512 58.0
512x384 60.0
400x300 61.0
320x240 62.0

Can someone shed some light upon this? The cables are brand new and I know they work because I get the sound coming through.

I have no idea about slackware, but in fedora we need to set up xorg.conf like this
Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Asus"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 Ti4200"
Option "NoLogo" "1"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "TwinView" "1"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768; 800x600,800x600"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
EndSection
Obviously you would have to use your specific parameters for vendor name , board name ,tv standard etc.

Or you could try this tool
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nv-tv-out/

Please don't swear...

We all know and have used the word, but not using it here helps to maintain the general tone of friendliness, helpfulness and co-operation that characterizes the LQ forum.

Thank you...

Let's hope that good behavior is it's own reward by attracting more qualified responses to your problem.

I needed to edit to take out the negative energy of the thread.

Firstly, I don't see what wine has to do with xorg, and secondly, do you mean you didn't back up your existing xorg.conf, and thirdly, can you read ?
I told you to set your own parameters, and I also told you that that was the way to set it up in fedora, not slackware.

You haven't even given us a description of what you changed and what errors go with what problem.
All you seem to be worried about is your "nice new cables" !

I'm sorry I was out of line. I didn't really exclaim what the problem was. That is on my own fault and I should gotten off the computer earlier. I will post my failure or success at a later time.

Throw something at the problem...

What about trying a live-cd with the TV connected to see what happens. You might gain some useful information. Mint, Mandriva, fedora, openSUSE, all differently based?

My cables went missing and now I got this green tint on my monitor when I left my house and came back. I guess problem is solved by stolen possessions haha. Thanks for trying to help. Your first solution might help someone else in the future. I was a little drunk when I was trying to fix everything so anger was multiply by 9000.
