    Hi all,

    The PlugggedIn Boys will probably tell me this.

    I am using the Xcard pushing the Data through the PDI to the Sweetspot through DScaler and then out through the Radeon with DVI.

    In the XMP Configurations, you have a Video Setup Tab.

    There 2 sides to that tab - Output and TV Standard.

    Output - Does this just come into play when you are outputting from the back of the XCard or is it used when the data is pushed throught the PDI.

    TV Standard - I only use PAL Discs. Which PAL option should I choose. The Radeon is setup for 1368 * 768 @56Hz.

    What is the relationship between the 2 tabs.

    Chris

    Hi Sneaky
    You need to set the output to anything other than VGA , ie set to Composite/SVideo, and it will then drive both the Xcard analogue outputs and the PDI outputs correctly.
    There is more information on our faq - http://www.pluggedin.tv/sweetspot/support/faq.html#6a

    regards

    David,

    How do decide on which PAL option to use. Do I take it that there are different PAL standards and we just have to suck it and see.

    Select the top one, PAL-BDGHI, IIRC the UK is PAL-I.

    :) .. trial and error yields lots of useful knowledge ;). I also vaguely recall seeing some driver select PAL-I when I told it I was in the UK, though couldn't locate that on my systems here so couldn't be absolutely sure.

    IIRC = If I Remember Correctly
    AFAIK = As Far As I Know
