    please help! i have a hp media center 2003 pc m380n with a nvidia geforce
    fx5200 graphics card and i cant get the dvi connection to work on my toshiba
    46h83 hdtv projection tv.i got a new card from hp and also have tried
    updating the driver everytime the new ones come out. the analog connection
    works ok as well as the svideo connection to the tv. i know the cable and dvi
    port on the tv are ok because they work when hooked up to the cable box. any
    ideas?

    Hi,

    did you check what video type your toshiba 46h83 hdtv projection tv
    supports? PAL-B, PAL-G, NTSC, etc.. maybe thats why. Dont you see anything
    or is the picture you get on your hdtv projection tv looking strange`?

    Are you using the nVidia MCE 2005 driver and not just the plain jane Windows
    XP drivers?

    There are speacial features having to do with HDTV, etc. for MCE in the
    nVidia MCE 2005 driver set.

    I have basically the same setup and it works fine.

    Are you sure the resolution you are trying to send is one that your TV will
    accept via DVI. Some TVs are very limited in what they will accept such as
    480p and 1080i only over DVI.

    The current 66.93 drivers from NVIDIA support both XP and MCE and you get
    the same driver when you select XP or MCE as your OS.

    hi,
    it works by the svideo conection in ntsc.when i try to get the dvi
    connection to work it is just a black screen. i just checked the tv manual
    and it says the dvi/hdcp connection will accept and display 480p,720p,480i,
    and 1080i.

    the manual for the tv says "the dvi/hdcp input is designed fro best
    performance with 1080i hgh definition video signals,but will also accept and
    display 480p,720p, and 480i.it also says the tv shouldn'tbe connected to a
    pc, but i thought that is just to avoid possible screen burn in.

    last 2 nites. i just downloaded and printed out the documentation for the
    driver today. can you let me know about these freatures and the equipment you
    are using and how it is configured?

  9. I have run my Philips TV via the DVI port, and it works great at 480 and
    720. When I try the 1080i, it jitters too much. I'm told this is the result
    of the nVidia 5200 and that better cards won't have this jitter.
