    Exclamation LCD PROBLEM!

    I just purchased a van with an aftermarket rear video entertainment system built in.
    I installed a jaton video card w/ TV out based on a trident chip. When i connect the computer to the entertainment system, there are white horizontal lines that flicker up and down in a cycle on the screen. The video output works fine on two of my home TV's. Also, the video cable i am using, is the one that the car's VCR uses ( i just unplugged the RCA from the VCR and plugged it into the computer). The output from the VCR is flawless. The flickering starts at bootup, so I'm not sure if its a windows problem. THANX!

    Double check the settings for the LCD. If it is a PAL then your video card must output PAL or it might be NTSC. Make sure that both the LCD and video card are outputing the same signal.

    that happened to me before... I had a trident 9865 with tv-out (4MB piece of crap) anyway...

    Make sure your cable is OK and thick enough so it doesn't get interference. i am using a TV coax cable with RCA to RG6 connectors. I hate video noise... another thing is make sure you ground your computer PSU case to same ground your inverter is.
