connecting a CRT-TV via Component-video
« on: November 20, 2010, 01:39:22 pm »
hi all,

Somewhere in the forums i did read that Hari successfully uses a crt-tv connected via component-video.
Myself, i have a beautiful Loewe Mimo 32" 16:9 (PAL 576i) crt-tv with component in.
My MD has a GT6600 nvidia-card.
I just don't seem to get the configuration exactly right.

The part i did figure out is that i need to make a custom screen-resolution (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions) but with what values?
Or is there a other (better) way to do this? only via webadmin maybe, but how?
i did manage to get a picture but the tv doesn't detect it as a 16:9 resolution.

Anybody got a idea? Hari :)?

thanks a lot,
best regards,
Raymond

thanks for the reply,

i tried 720x576 but still, the tv doesn't switch to the correct display-mode (16:9)
your link brought me to this:

looks like a solution but i don't know how to set it up in LinuxMCE.
anyone?

br,
