  • EPIA "tv" out question

    I just got my EPIA 800 mhz itx board. I have not been able to figure out how to enable the "tv" out feature to send the video signal to my LCD. I don't have a secondary monitor readily available at this time so if its in the BIOS I guess I have to wait to enable it. But if its a jumper I can't find the right jumper in the manual.

    Can anyone shed dome light on the subject?

    Thanks

    You may have to change the jumper for the tv out..

    The rca for the tv out is also the pdif out there is a jumper on the board next to it.. consult your manual to figure out how to do that..

    If you boot up with the computer connected to a tvout and no vga it should automatically boot to the tvout

      I dont have VGA connected, just the rca out for the LCD, I have tried both settings for RCA/SPDIF with the jumper on the board. I still get no display on the LCD.

      I have tested the LCD on my home computer and it works, I guess I need to hook up VGA to see if ITX board is working.

      Any other suggestions?

      Thanks

        Is your computer even showing post on the lcd??
        What OS are you using?

          Nothing shows up on the LCD, no post, nothing. I pulled the harddrive from my old setup and plugged directly into ITX to test it out. I can hear the HD clicking away but I get no display. I am using Win98 setup so that Winamp is the shell (i.e. boots directly to winamp)

          Thanks For the help

            In my experience win98 will go to the lcd no matter what if there's no vga hooked up...

            I don't know what else to tell ya..

            Maybe your IDE cable is in backwards? you should still get post though...

            I'd call in an RMA If you can't get anything on the vga either

              Well I finally hooked up to VGA and the hard drive booted and everything was on screen....

              but to my surprise it was the wrong hard drive, it had WinXP on it. So I am starting the process of installing Win98 and trying it out the LCD.

              Thanks for the help, i'll let you know the results.

                with xp you need to set the video card to the composite out then remove the vga and shutdown in order for it to stay on the composite.. once xp sees the vga again it will forget all about the composite

                  Everthing is working now, I switched over to the S-Video out and there are no more problems.

                  Thanks for the help.

                    The TV-output on the board is only 8bit color (256 colors). If you have it set higher than that (which I'm sure you do) that will be your problem (at least with the composite output).
