I am really stuck on this problem.

I just connected my TV to my Geforce 2 MX Card, but the pictures looks awful!

The highest resolution I can get is 640x480 and 16 colors.

If I try and set the colors higher I get a blank screen.

Is there a way to get at least 256 colors on the TV screen with the Geforce 2 MX card?

Yes, did downloaded the lastest drivers and it still didn't work.

I did found out what problem was and now it displays fine on the TV.

Though there is this one glitch.

When I try and run the DOS Prompt in full screen under Windows, I get a blank screen on the televison set.

This means I can't play any DOS based games on the TV.

Does anybody has a solution to this?

well, according to my monitor, when i switch to dos prompt full screen, it's at 720x400.

perhaps if you start the game, running at 640x480 or 800x600 (vesa has this res?) THEN it'll show on the tv?

If I have my video card connected to my monitor AND my TV, my tv doesn't display anything when I am running DOS on fullscreen. It only works in windows. But if I only have the tv connected, it works perfectly fine. I don't think there is a way to have DOS programs work on the tv if both the monitor and TV are connected to the video card.

According to the Twinview.txt that came with the driver, one of the issues with the driver is:

When entering DOS full screen in Extended/Clone modes, the 2nd display device will black out.
So the driver doesn't work with a second display device in full screen DOS mode.
