    Help with Epia M10K RCA Video

    Does anyone know how to get the RCA video out working on the M10000 epia ITX motherboard. Tried both jumper settings on the M/B ( very confusing on web sit..FAQ says short 1-2 for RCA, manual says short 3-4) neither work anyway.
    I am trying to duplicate the picture on my VGA 7in touchscreen via the RCA video out to a RCA input 8in roof mounted flip down monitor.
    All I get is "no signal". The monitor works on my Xbox/Dreamcast etc. so I know that's OK.
    ANY HELP please.

    .

    You dont need to change a jumper at all. You have to play with the settings in BIOS however. for display set it to :CRT + TV, I can't remember if there is a LCD + TV mode... if there is that is more preferable)

    Thanks but tried that. You have to be careful with those settings, I got an out of range on my VGA touchscreen with one combi and had to reset the bios.
    BTW Any idea which is the right jumper setting ???

    Nope, Intellaworks is right. I've also done it on my M10000. You boot into Bios and set it to CRT+TV. If you got "out of range", it might have been sending only to the TV. That happened to me once.

    If you're not getting TV output when changing the BIOS, something's not working properly.

    Forget what you're being told here Wizz. You're right, the RCA plug is switchable via a jumper on the board. One setting is for video out and the other is S/PDIF.

    As I remember, you need to short pins 1 and 2 for it to be video output. But, if that doesn't work, just switch it to 3 and 4.

    Make sure you have the BIOS set to CRT+TV and PAL.

    I agree with Curly_Cat..
    Havn't fully tested yet but according to the motherboard manual you should select jumper setting 1-2 for s/PDIF (Toslink) Audio out and 3-4 for TV-out.
    Bios settings need to be right also...

    So I checked the VIA manual to see if I was wrong. It's true to use the RCA jack, you DO have to ensure that the pins are grounded, as noted. We already discussed selecting the display in BIOS.

    However, there is an additional setting in the BIOS under "Advanced Chipset Features" called "TV Type". Choices are NTSC and PAL. You might check to be sure that is set appropriately. (Page 3-12 in my manual.)

    Also, the S-Video jack doesn't seem to be affected by jumper settings. You could get an S-Video cable and a composite RCA adaptor (both are pretty inexpensive) and you might be able to run the video that way.

    Jumper Settings !

    Hang on Guys... If you check the previous posts it's still not clear which jumper settings are correct. Like I mentioned, even the Web Site is saying 1-2 in one place and 3-4 in another. And so are these posts !
    Anybody got a definative on that ? If one of you Guys have got a rear screen setup working already, can they double check their settings and let me know. Thanks.

    That seems like a good option to check if I can't bottom the RCA port. You Guys are being very helpful and it's appreciated , but you would have thought that this should be a lot easier than it is. Just hope I've not waisted 90 quid on a monitor that I can't get working the way I want.

    FWIW - here's the page from my manual that clearly says pins 1 and 2.
