bummer, compiling it dint work. executing nvtv always says that no compatible cards present. dont think they can detect cards of now-a-days. anyways, im starting a new thread to still consider this as an option over manual re-writing of the Xorg file, i had a bad time with that 3 months ago.

OK I got it working on mine, but not an FX5500, and not with NVTV. It was an GF4MX 420.
Just get the NVIDIA drivers off their site, and run the installer.
I run SuSE and had no trouble adding the options I wanted under Sax2.
You can just find the options you want in the NVIDIA readme, it's really pretty clear on what to do.
I'll let you know how the FX5500 goes though.

man, everyone keeps saying that everything is on the nvidia readme. the problem is that the nvidia readme has confiurations for Xfree86 while i am using Xorg. i am a bit doubtfull whether they will work because i had messed up my FC4 installation 3 months ago when i tried this earlier.

If you want to connect your pc to tv via the s-video port of your video card, then install the nvidia driver and edit xorg.conf with the options shown on the screen section. In my case I had to build a cable to convert s-video to compsite.
