View Full Version : Geforce4 TV-Out Positioning
13th April 2004, 02:23 AM
I got the tv-out of my Geforce4 Mx 440 working but there is a small black border to the left of the screen.
How do I get it positioned properly (centered)?
Is is possible to use adjust a "modeline" to change the position of your tv-out?

I had the same problem with this card even on Windows XP. When using Nvidia driver, the screen will be centered. Else, adjust your monitor settings.

I am able to adjust the moniter, but how would I go about adjusting the tv-out?

Here is the instruction from http://rebus.webz.cz/
1a. Download both
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-5336.src.rpm (http://rebus.webz.cz/download.php?get=NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-5336.src.rpm) and NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-5336.src.rpm (http://rebus.webz.cz/download.php?get=NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-5336.src.rpm)
1b. Install your kernel source from either yum or apt. Check which kernel you use by tapping kernel -a uname on shell command.
2. On shell mode(console), move both downloaded file to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES by writing su -c "mv NVIDIA*.rpm /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/" . This will ask you root password. You can use su -c with any command.
3. cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
Recompile package of binary drivers:
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-5336.src.rpm
rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-5336.src.rpm
or simply type "rpmbuild --rebuild NVIDIA_*.rpm". Use the command su -c "..." or log as root. Following step will assume you are logged as root.
5. switch interactive mode from 5 to 3. To do it, gedit /etc/inittab and look for the line that start with "id:5...".
6. reboot, you should be on shell mode. If you log as user, you need to use su -c "command" (ex: su -c "rpm -Uvh *.*").
7. type "cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386". Your new compiled NVIDIA rpm should be there.
8. use "rpm -Uvh NVidia_*.rpm"
9. If you know how use vim command editor, type "vi /etc/X11/XFree86Config" to swich Driver "nv" to "nvidia". Type Insert key to edit this line. Once you did, type Esc key, ":" key, w, q. The configuration will be saved and you should be back on shell mode.
10. type startx to test the driver. You should see Nividia Splash Screen. Do not forget to switch back to graphical mode on /etc/inittab (3 -> 5).
These steps should solve that issue.

Thanks for the link.
I have the card working with TV-Out. The TV-out is off center. How do I get it positioned properly?
Is it possible to use adjust a "modeline" to change the position of your tv-out?

I failed to find a way.
The problem has a lot to do with the default driver provided with Fedora Core. When you install driver from the link I posted or Nvidia Website, the TV-out should be centered. Be aware that current Nvidia driver crash with kernel 2.6.3.x and above.
