I am going out of my mind here, wondering how anyone has the patience to try and do what should be, on the face of it, a simple task. I am simply trying to play a DVD from the PC, to a TV set. However, it is ANYTHING but simple. I am using a Geforce4 Ti4200 graphics card, and have connected it via S-VHS (S-Video) to the TV S-VHS input. My Nvidia driver did not seem to support TV out, so I tried a newer version. That does support TV out, but I can only get a black and white display. So I download a copy of TV Tool, and that allows me to get a colour picture on my screen. However, I could not see video at all when I played DVDs. I could see the pointer, but not the video, even though it was playing on my monitor. Suspecting macrovision to be at fault, I use the function to bypass it in TV Tool. Now my machine just completely crashes, the pointer moves slow, the movie will not play at all with TV tool running. Turning macrovision on or off seems to have no effect. It results in me having to do a hard reset of the machine. I have tried re-installing Power DVD, but to no avail.
