TV Out Overscan (NVidia Based Cards) - Info
Just a little info for anyone with an Nvidia based (TNT-1 / 2 a. GeForce 1 / 2 / MX) using TV-Out to NTSC LCD Screen:
You can overscan to get FULL screen using a software called: TVCC 2000 or TVTool 5.
If your card has the Chrontel Chip (CH700X)for TV out, you must use TVCC 2000 and it is FREEWARE.
If your card has the BrookTree (with BT869 or BT868) for TV out, you must use TVTool 5 and it is SHAREWARE (10.00$ US).
This software supports NTSC and PAL.
I have tried this with my Abit Siluro Geforce 2MX. It works perfectly. Important note: If you have twinview, make sure you disable it. There is also a command line to start the TV-out. I have put this in my Win Startup group. Works like a charm. Now I get the full 5" of my screen.
