trouble with nVidia VIVO (video-in/video-out)

Q: trouble with nVidia VIVO (video-in/video-out)

Hi,

I'm having trouble with the VIVO on my video card. (video-in/video-out) The video card is an Albatron FX 5900 TURBO. (256 MB DDR) On the back of the card there are three ports: one VGA, one DVI, and one VIVO. The VIVO port looks similar to an s-video connection, but instead is for a VIVO adapter. (an s-video cable will not fit because there isn't a little hole for the safety pin that's on an s-video cable) The adapter that plugs into the VIVO port has four connections on it: s-video in, s-video out, composite in and composite out.

I've sat down with this one on a few occasions, and I've never been able to get a signal out to my TV. I've tried using both s-video and composite. I'm running version 8.1.8.5 (the latest release -- 10/10/2005) of Albatron's nVidia driver.

I normally use dual displays, (2 CRT flat screens) but you can only have 2 displays in use at one time. When I try to get the TV display working I switch the displays in use to my primary display (CRT monitor) on VGA and secondary display (TV) on VIVO s-video out.

One issue, which I don't think should matter, is that the VIVO adapter I'm using didn't come with this card. I bought this card from a friend and he lost the original adapter, but gave me the VIVO adapter that came with his notebook. The adapter he gave me looks identical to the picture in the manual for this card. Would it make sense that these VIVO adapters are product specific and need the original adapter to work? It doesn't say anything like that in the manual.

I've made sure the settings are correct in windows and in the nVidia settings, and I can't get a signal to the TV. I know the cable and inputs are good on my TV because I'll get a picture if I hook it up to my notebook's s-video out. I do know that from the manual there is no software required for video-out functionality. (but you need to install a separate driver for video input)

I contacted Albatron a few months ago and never received a response.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Mike

Alright, I recently decided my old computer needed an upgrade from my onboard UniChrome Pro video chip. I got the 5500 from a friend who was replacing it, since it would suit my needs. I brought it home and tried to install it, deactivating my onboard, getting the card in place, and starting my computer back up. My screen was a bit messed up at start up, I expected it to be until I got the drivers installed. However, when Windows starts up my screen loses it's connection and goes black. Any ideas for help?

i put a new 128mb Nvidia GeForce FX5500 video card in to upgrade from a 32mb tnt2/PRO and it couldnt take the drivers i had the cd and i got the driver straight off of nvidia website and the drivers still wont go in it stays at a low 4bit picture and the resolution stays at a 640x480, so i put the old card back in and it wont even boot the picture for the bios.

A:Nvidia GeForce FX5500 video card Trouble

hmmm did the 32 mb card work properly?
did you uninstall the 32 mb card drivers?
try having your minitor cable linked straight onto the motherboard monitor connector if you have one and i think the reason the picture would not boot from bios is becouse some drivers are still installed.
did you uninstall the fx 5500 drivers before putting the 32 mb card back in.

check if the graphics card uses too utch power and check if the monitor is connected onto the graphics card properly.

the problem you are facing could be due to motherboard related problems or you may have a faulty graphics card or you simply might be installing the graphics card wrong (read the instruction booklet carefully)

i had problems with my ge force fx 5200 pci simuler to your problem but it was due to me not disableing the onboard 4mb drivers

Now, before I got it, someone flashed the bios, unlocking the final 4 pixel pipelines. I doubt this has any bearing, but it's worth mentioning. When attempting to capture composite video, it will begin to capture, work for 15 seconds to 6 minutes. At some point, it stops capturing, my screen goes blank, and sometimes the whole system freezes, requiring a restart (and loss of my work). I had an ATI TV tuner card installed (PCI), and figured this may be causing the problem. After removal of the tuner card, and reinstallation of the Catalyst software, Windows recognizes the Rage Theater capture engine (Hardware Manager), but in software, I can't get any video to show up on the preview screen (Pinnacle and Windows Movie Maker). Any thoughts? This card is crazy expensive and I'd hate to lose this feature.

Thanks in advance for any and all help. Here are some quick details to set the stage for this help thread:

-I am using a Sony DCR-TRV120 Digital Handycam.
-Here are a few of my system specs:

Operating System: WinXP SP2
CPU Speed: Intel Pentium 4 2.00GHz
Harddrive space: 120GB & 40GB
RAM Memory: 1024 MBytes

Now, for my problem. I was recently able to capture some video (one hour and thirty minutes worth or so), but when I played it back on my computer, the first part of it seemed fine, I could hear it and see it (the video seemed to freeze a tiny bit though), but not too far into the video file the audio disapeared. I have since deleted that file, so I can't give specific details on that anymore.

Anyway, I am now trying to capture again, and nothing I use seems to be doing the job. Windows Moive Maker wont even load for me, it freezes and it's a pain in the butt to get it to shut down. I am trying to use WinDV right now, but I get an error that says "Error: Can't find DV output pin".

Hi Prospect151

Try downloading & installing a fresh version of the Intel graphics drivers as well. Here's a link to the 9/28/2005 version 14.17 driver for the Extreme Graphics 2 of the the 865G integrated graphics for Windows XP --- http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...lName=Windows* XP Home Edition&lang=eng --- another alternative would be to try Windows Update.

Should you have any other system files missing, scan for malware - to make sure that unwanted visitors aren't altering system files. You can also try a run of Windows File Protection (aka System File Checker) - from the Start/Run box, type

sfc /scannow

... the program might prompt for either your Windows installation CD, or the spot on your hard drive where your .cab files are. It will only do so if it finds a file-version problem, or a file missing. The program will leave entries in the Event Viewer for when it starts, when it stops, and what files it replaced (if any). The Event Viewer is in the Administrative Tools in your Control Panel.

The problem is that the framerates are a little bit different and there is no keyframe info for each to keep themselves in sync.

In fact some media companies deliberately introduce keyframe errors so that conversion prgrams and the like don't keep the video and audio in sync.

I'm looking at the latest video cards that are out, i.e ATI X1600XT/X1800XT/X1900XT and Nvidia 7600GT/7900GT. I'll have an X2 and a ASUS SLI/Crossfire mobo for upgradability. I'm not a big gamer and want image quality so am leaning towards ATI. I'm into video/photo editing and HTPC/Multimedia, but want the card to last 3 or more years into Vista and what apps in my fields of interest become available for it. I know DX10 is coming and who knows what versions after that in this 3 year time span.

Should I get the cheap X1600XT/7600GT and wait till next year when Vista/DX10 are in service and the video cards are up to date to buy an expensive card if even then? I'm leaning this way but want varied opinion.

Will these cards not be able to take advantage of DX10+ when it comes? Will they run DX10+ at all or do I never apply that update?

My biggest goal is high quality/accurate image. But supporting all the Vista visual goodies and non-game apps to come is important. So which is it ATI or Nvidia? And which card for the winner?
Thanks

A couple of things jump out immediately. Your specs say you have 5GB of RAM, an odd number. That suggests that you added some RAM at some point. Mismatched or failing RAM modules can cause TDRs. You might want to test those sticks one at a time in Slot 1 before anything else. RAM problems can explain some of your other issues too.

Looking at some of your other posts I see you are running dual monitors also. This could be exposing a defect in your 9500GT that is triggering the TDRs. You should test with only one monitor attached to see if this is the case.

You are running lots of stuff on that box, so I would be as deliberate as possible in doing the diagnostic work.

Hi folks,

Bad storm came through this morning. Afterwards when booting pc all i've gotten was 800 x 600 resolution with 16 color.

I've downloaded and updated the drivers for monitor and the Nvidia GEForce4 MX 440 video card.

No help.

Each time I try to change the display it forces me to restart pc to allow change. Previously I could always see the display change and choose whether I wanted to keep it or not without a restart. When I accept change and restart, computer hangs and monitor light goes to standby. Only way to recover is a ctr-alt-del and enter. PC restarts but comes right back to the huge 800 x 600 resolution.

Machine is also very, very slow in everything it does since this morning. I tried moving the monitor to the onboard video and rebooting, but then it never came on ... stayed in standby mode.

Is it possible for me to disable the video card while still plugged into it and be able to revert back to the onboard video just to test the card?

I haven't had a lot of experience with monitors and video cards. I'm not even positive they are the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Nvidia Video Card Fried?

G'day shesun4givn2...wow that is certainly a name!
I would suggest removing the power from the machine, then removing the video card and plugging the monitor back into the onboard video socket.
On re-power up it will (with luck) realise the onboard video is required and load the driver for it and produce an image.
You shouldn't need drivers at this point, hopefully you won't need to enter BIOS and make any changes.
See if you can get that up.
(It sounds like the video card may be crippled)
Lightning does not need to strike the prower lines to kill a machine, it is always worthwhile unplugging or fitting a surge protection device. (these work sometimes)

Hello everyone. I updated my drivers with 191.07. All went well and integrated perfectly except for one anomoly :- I like fairly big icons and text, and I always use a res. of 960 x 600 which is perfect for me. After installing these new drivers, I can't get 960 x 600 any longer. I can get down to 1024 x 768 which (for me) is too small. Below that is 800 x 600 which is a wee bit too large.

Does anyone know why I can't get 960? I've been all over Nvidia's website, but they craftily don't give "conact us" details. I wiped it out and did it again but the result was the same. I have a Forsa (Nvidia) GeForce 6600 card which has 256 megs of RAM. I have 1 GB of RAM and a P4 2.4 GHz CPU.

Many thanks

In the nVidia Control Panel, navigate to the Change Resolution tab under the Display Section. Here, click on the Add Resolutions button and, on the page that pops up, click Create Custom Resolution.

Set your required resolution, scan rate and color depth.

The little arrow at the bottom left will allow you to set scan timings if you require custom settings for those too. Just leave it on auto and click the Test button to test your custom resolution. If you are happy with it, you can save it as a regular resolution selection.

Try it and see if that helps.

Let us know.

Hey there,
I just purchased an LCD TV which is now in the same room as my computer (a relatively new Dell system running Windows XP)...anyways I use my S-Video cable so that I can watch movies from my PC on my LCD TV...I have two questions...
1. When I play widescreen movies from my PC, the letterbox is still present on the LCD (which is 16:9) is there ANY WAY i can have the movies from my PC fill up my entire LCD TV without any letterboxing?
2. When I play movies, the resolution on the TV is excellent...but my desktop seems to be a little hazy, is there any way I can improve this?
Thanks a lot!
-Mike
 

A:NVIDIA, an LCD TV, and S-VIDEO: WIDESCREEN PROBLEMS

You may be able to use a different type of connection to get a better picture.

Can you tell us what type of outputs are on the video card on your PC and also whats inputs the LCD TV will accept.

For example, if the LCD TV has a PC input then you use that for the best picture.

Cheers

Craig

I have a Asus P5B motherboard with the nVidia 650i chipset.

Anyone know if the mobo/chipset is compatible with ATI Video cards?
 

A:nVidia Chipset and ATI Video Card

1. please post in the correct forum - audio/video
2. video cards generally are not dependant on mobo chipsets. (there are a few exceptions.) If you have a slot, you should be able to use it with the right drivers. If you have integrated video you will need to turn it off in BIOS.

I'm still learning.....

When I log on computer, screen shows "The ATI control panel
failed to initialize because no ATI driver is installed, or ATI driver is not working properly. The ATI control panel will now exit".

I know that has been discussed here, but this is my question: Isn't ATI a video card? I have Nvidea GeForce FX5500 in my system (XP, 1 G Ram)) yet this error message always appears. When I pull up display adaptors in device mgr, my Nvidea shows, nothing for ATI does.

So, do I need both? I just updated drivers on my video card and direct x due to a game freezing. That didn't help. Then I remembered this error message and wondered if it had something to do with it.

Thanks alot for any help.

A:Do I need Ati drivers if I have Nvidia video card?

You don't need ATI drivers-they are for AMD/ATI graphics cards- uninstall them.
Use Driver Sweeper here:
http://downloads.guru3d.com/Guru3D---Driver-Sweeper-(Setup)-download-1655.html
in preference to "Add and Remove Programs" in the control panel. I would uninstall both the ATI and nVidia drivers and re-install the applicable nVidia driver to ensure you get an uncorrupted install.
The DirectX update should be fine.

You should only have the graphics driver from your graphics card vendor ( the manufacturer) i.e. Gigabyte, MSI, XFX, EVGA etc. If the card is an OEM product then download from here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

FX5xxx branded cards (not OEM) may not run with the nVidia Forceware drivers so make sure you use the manufacturers recommended download if available.

Hi!
I saw a thread that is now expired on this one issue that I am all of a sudden having with my nVidia Control Panel; however it just ended and never gave a definitive answer. I am getting the error that the NVIDIA Display Panel Extension cannot be created. I have uninstalled and reinstalled still have a problem (dated 7/14/09). I had originally started by upgrading the RAM in this desktop because my laptop is just too small for my aging eyes, lol. I had also bought a new Samsung Monitor. So as if I didn't know any better, I upgraded the RAM AND hooked up the new monitor to the system at the same time and the darn monitor would only show the Dell screen and the loading windows screen then blank. Well I hooked it back up to the TV I had it hooked to prior AND removed the RAM and now I see this error message, which I am assuming is probably the whole issue although why does it work on this APEX TV as opposed to my Samsung Monitor?!?!?! ...

I've stumbled upon a slight mystery here,my video card has two sets of drivers, one from MSI and one from nvidia. Do you know which I'm supposed to use?

Using the MSI updater it says "current driver: not installed" it also says that the latest driver available is 8.17.12.5896.

I currently have installed Nvidia driver 285.79.

I just don't know why there are two drivers...

Any help appreciated, thanks.
