Users / Two small issues with LCD TV
« on: March 17, 2009, 06:21:32 pm »
I'm up and running now but was wondering why when I run the AV setup wizard for Vid and Sound that I can only select 480p when my Vizio set is supposed to support 1080i.  What does that mean when the Wizard won't accept that config and flashes back for me to make another selection?  I've got all the right drivers installed.  This set is supposed to support 1366 X 768....

The next issue is that even at the command line (outside of X, and inside X) my screen needs to go a half inch to the right.  If I go into my TV's menu settings for RGB it does allow me to change the size; it does not with HDMI input.  Is there any way to overcome this limitation because this is driving me crazy and I have to use the DVI to HDMI connection.

Thanks for everyone's help thus far.

I gave up on this card after trying what was suggested...didn'twork, X crashed... and went with the BFG GeForce 7300 GS and it worked on the first try and with alpha blending.  I'm good to go now.

Yeah, thanks, I found that too on how to relaunch the wizard.  I'll try CJ's suggestions first and if that doesn't work I'll reinstall again.

Sorry I couldn't provide a screenshot.  Here's what's happening.  I only got the cool vertical buttons and Flikr screen display one time and yes, I'm trying to use Alpha Blending.   All other times I only get a flat looking screen with 1 inch square buttons on it...not dynamic, but it does allow me to navigate media by clicking once with my mouse.  Is this because I have not correctly got Alpha Blending working?  I didn't try to download the newest Nvidia drivers, but I did try that before and it did not work with this card and I had to resort to vesa driver and VGA connection.   The best results so far I've got by enabling the Nvidia driver through Kbuntu, there were two listed there and I chose Nvidia, not nv.  Then I went into Pluto-Admin and made sure Nvdia 7000 was selected in there and chose HDMI, which I have to get working because I want to use the thinner cable through my wall...don't ask...  Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but when I rebooted, I lost the vertical buttons.

I am having major issues with this card working and trying everything suggested in the forums and the Video FAQ.  I'm not adverse to purchasing another card that will work right to get me on the road if necessary.

I've tried to install LMCE from the DVD, and then went with the separate components installation.  I've only seen the Flickr media and vertical buttons once....then it went away after I rebooted. 

I always just get static buttons on the screen.  I'm guessing this is due to my video settings...but how do I fix it?  I've run the Audio + Vid wizard many times and can't it to the correct resolution.  I've been through the FAQ, the Forums, etc.  I'm running the Nvidia driver and verified it through Pluto-Admin.  I also set it in Kubuntu, to use the Nvidia driver.   Should I get another Vid card?

The biggest issue is the static buttons.   

Okay, so I had to manually add the FreeNAS since it did detect it once but I had to reinstall and it didn't seem to the second time.  Is there a way to add the Public path for it manually?  I see how to run manual File Sync now and I've got stuff showing up finally. 


I think it catalogued it properly...I just don't know how to get to it, pulling it up on the Core.

I have a Core installed and connected to my TV.  Further I've got FreeNAS installed in a desigated room and I can pull up Video files using Kbuntu and watch them, no problem.  Shouldn't I be able to pull up Videos from the Core box connected to my TV?  I can't seem to see how...
