    Epia M and Xenarc

    Here's the problem i'm having....I want to use both the VGA and TV out on my Epia M at the same time. However, when I enable the TV output in the display settings, I'm assuming it changes the refresh rate to something that is not compatible with the Xenarc. The TV out works fine at this point but the Xenarc displays "unknown mode" and the picture is not vertically centered as it starts midway down the screen and wraps around to the top. Anything i can do do solve this problem?

    Noticed the same problem. I'm not using the s-video so I didn't really look into it. Just wanted to let you know, its not just you.

    I just ran into the same problem. Has anyone found a way to fix the VGA output on the Xenarc?

    I quick run down of my problem. I have an EPIA M9000 board, with a Xenarc 700TS connected to the onboard VGA. Running WinXP. That has worked pretty good for a couple months. I have it in 800 x 600 res and the Xenarc stretched the screen to utilize the full widescreen of the Xenarc. Not perfect, but it works pretty good.

    I just added a roof-mount Tvie T7002 7" LCD. It connects to the RCA TV Out port on the EPIA mobo. BIOS says CRT+TV. I'm using version 6.13.10 of the Via Vidio drivers for XP. I can go into the advanced setting of the display driver, check the box under the TV icon, and select Composite and NTSC.

    At that point I'm outputting to both VGA and TV out. TV out looks fine. Low quality and can't read text, but it's centered and fills the screen. VGA switches resolution mode (according to the Xenarc) and sort of squishes the VGA display to about 2/3 of the screen, and displays on the lower half. Turning off the TC out in WinXP, or unplugging the RCA cable from the TV out will correct the problem and the VGA is back to normal 800 x 600 mode.

    This really sucks. Does anyone know of a way to fix this? I've tried all known Via driver versions, including the XP embeded version. All with similar results.

    Please help,
    Kurt
