[mythtv] Quality of TV out and vga to tv converters?
Wed, 18 Dec 2002 16:15:08 -0500
Interesting. I haven't had that problem myself...
Have you tried enabling the software cursor rather than the
hardware-accelerated cursor? There's something in the nvtv docs I
remember that sounds a lot like your problem, and the sw vs. hw cursor
was the solution. There might even be a command line option to nvtv to
allow you to set that.
Hope this fixes it,

I tried nvtv a while back but I was having problems with the mouse
not being on the right spot (it highligts a selection on another part of
screen so now I use the built in tv out feature of the nvidia drivers.
use a script to switch two versions of my XF86Config-4 , one for Monitor
output and one for TV output and just Ctrl Alt BAckspace to switch. I
some black edges on the tv output though, not much, but the picture can
bigger but I dont know how to do it.
