    I have all of the above available and am trying to remove macrovision from being displayed.

    Can anyone help please?? I have found a few sites, but the patches don't match my versions, or links are down.

    Any help would be appreciated!!

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    Download tvtool: http://tvtool.info/index_e.htm

    The latest Dets have macrovision enabled but you should be able to disable it using that app. Haven't tried it myself yet so let me know how it goes! :)

    Thanks MuFu, i have had a look at this tool, but it says "Sorry, cant find a TV chip on your graphics card".

    How do I find out which TV chip it has??

    Cheers!

    TVTool doesn't work on GF4MX cards that user the on-chip TV Encoder.

    Basically you just shouldn't have bought a GF4MX card as NVIDIA really messed up with the hardware in it. It's just a fast GF2, not even hardware suprior to the GF3.

    Doh! hehe.

    It doesn't matter really, I bought it just as a cheap upgrade from my aging ATI All-In-Wonder. More of a stop-gap (as is the 1200 Duron motherboard I bought).

    Still, got the whole lot (excluding case), including sound, ethernet, chip, board and graphics for £110. Bargain!!!

    Thanks for your help tho'

    Paul.
