need to set tv out from ntsc to pal


My project is to make a linux media center for my front room using openSuse 10.2 & MythTV, at the moment things are
going good, have managed to load suse 10.2 on ,configured the WLAN, The onboard realtek AC97 sound card and load in the lastest NVIDIA Drivers not bad for a newbie.

But I need help to configure the tv output, it is set to NTSC but I need it set PAL-I(UK),I have been looking around on the forum site for help but i having trouble
reading the lingo as im still trying to understand it all but im learning.

The graphic card is Nvidia GF4 4200ti

thanks rob

Try putting an Option line in your Device section like this.

Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I"
I got this from the first hit in a quick Google search changing the NTSC to your standard you may want to read a few more of the hits to see if more is needed.
