hey was wondering if anyone could tell me what is going on....I have run RCA cable from my video card to my TV, however, on some of the files, I can run them on my monitor, but they are blank on the TV. Other files run fine on the TV. I can still hear the sound, though when it is on the TV it is choppy....here is my pertinent info:
P4 1.5Ghz
GeForce2 Ti with RCA and S Video out
40.72 NVidia drivers
XP Pro

thanks,
ether

Make sure you play it with a divX player too. Because divX is basically a hacked version of mpeg4, Microsoft have gone out of their way to ensure divX is unreliable in WMP (and because it is programmed by about a thousand different people, it isn't too stable for starters).

SOmeone on the board had the same problem. Its because the version of Divx being used. Divx 5 does not contain Divx 3.11, only 4 and 5...

Install Divx 3.11 Alpha
Reinstall Divx 5.02

This should correct the problem...

Junkie I did that too and also have the same problem. Tons of other movie files play, just not Divx, and even using the Divx playa.

I heard it was a problem with video overlay and how Nvidia cards dont support it. Notice both he and I have a Nvidia card.

How would the DivX codecs make them playble on my PC, but not on my TV? All the files play fine on the PC, but on certain files, they dont play on the TV when I "switch output device". I have Divx 5.02 codecs, I will have to try installing the 3.11's. I am a bit confused.....
