Hello all, I have successfully built several Myth boxes using the current
hardware that I am using however I decided this time to use Fedora Core 4,
and upgrade to Myth .19
Basicly my hardware consists of a PVR-350, and a nvidia MX4000, I am using
the MX4000 svideo out to my TV for display as well as a temporary VGA
I built an entirely new system ( using larger hard drives ) and have a fresh
install of Fedora core 4. I am using Jarods guide for the myth install as I
usually have done. However, with my nvidia card I can not get the 6767
driver through yum, and if I download it it will not compile. I have tried
various other driver version and only the newest one with compile. But that
is not the worst of my problems... As I stated I am using the svideo out on
the card and I am then converting that to RCA to go the TV. However, upon
doing this I get the following results depending on the Xorg.conf.
If I set the Xorg.conf video out to SVIDEO I get black and white display
only ( this is expected given the converter )
If I set the Xorg.conf video out to COMPOSITE the way my old Xorg.conf file
was in FC-3 then I get nothing. No video on the TV at all.
I have tried booting the system with and without the VGA monitor attached. -
I have the Xorg.conf file set to clone, and have removed all info reguarding
the VGA and disconnected it. - also no change.
so... What can I do, I do get color displayed on the TV until the nvidia
driver takes over. Then it goes black and white. Once again I have used
the same setting from my FC-3 Xorg.conf file that works fine if if I drop in
my old hard drive with the exact same hardware, so it would seem that the
nvidea driver with FC-4 does not seem to work on my system.
Thanks in advance.
