"Video Card or Drivers Not Compatible" Error with a Compatible Car

    I have MCE2005 and using an Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 video card (which IS on
    the compatible hardware list for MCE2005), and the latest Nvidia MCE 77.79
    WHQL drivers

    When I start the system I get an error popup "The Video Card or Drivers are
    not compatible with Media Center", however when I click OK to acknowledge the
    error MCE launches successfully

    I have noticed that I only get the error when I output to TV via S-Video.
    When I output to an LCD monitor I do not get the error and MCE launches
    without a problem

    Can anyone please help?

    Cheers, Mike

    Tis error is not unique to graphics cards.This error description also
    applies if the your TV tuner/Video capture card or its drivers are not
    compatible. Some users reporting this error found that it was being caused
    by their DVD Decoder which decodes the encoded video not being MCE
    compatible.

    I have to admit I am somewhat baffled by the sequence of events you are
    having.
    Are you connecting both the TV and the Monitor and selecting the TV as the
    primary display and then shuting down disconnecting the Monitor and booting
    with only the TV connected?
