I'm using a Vistek GeForce4 4600 on WinXP. I installed the drivers from the Cd so I could use the s-vid out. Great it works. Now I no longer have a Tv in my room and I want to use the svid in, but I can not get a display. I downloaded the latest forceware and wdm drivers and the latest version of MPC but to no avil. The GameCube is producing a display, but my computer won't do anything about it. Its pluged into a vivo cable and it's all pluged in right. I've restarted time after time with nothing. Any help will be helpful, thanks.

First of all, the vivo cable was included with the card or you just got one? If you got it then the videocard has tv-out only.
If the card is vivo enabled then the cd must have had a capture/tv/whatver you plug/viewing program. Install it and use it to check that everything is working. Select s-video as the source.

I got the plug with the card, I can't seem to find the driver disk, it is vivo, and I have had it working in the past.

That's odd, I was able to easily get my PS2 running through DScaler with my new video card. Did you download the GF2/3/4/FX WDM drivers and not the GF6 ones?

Fixed it. I didn't know I had a TVtuner on this thing, how do I use it? It only has a VGA DVI and VIVO ports. So my problem was with my drivers, I discovered the tv tuner when I installed the drivers from the cd. Whould there be any reason for me to upgrade the drivers? Are there any preformance reasons?

n_w95482, what filters are you using to play, my games seem very fuzzy.

I use the Greedy 2 Frame deinterlace method and I think that's it. My main problem with playing games through my video in is that it seems to be stuck at 30 fps, making games like Gran Turismo 4 very choppy. ChrisTV seems to play the stream more smoothly but it's interlaced by default.

Try this:

Video Greedy (High motion). I don't see any difference between the deinterlace filters but oh well...

And this:

Filters: (use filter settings to change their values)
Linear correction (experimental): Linear correction filter enabled and mask type trapezoid.
Sharpness: Fast memory access enabled, sharpness 226, sharpness filter enabled of course :lol:
Noise reduction gradual: Fast memory access enabled, filter enabled and noise reduction 35.
Temporal comb: Fast memory access and high quality enabled, maximum color variation 35, recal of past shimmering 85, shimmering to activate 70, temporal comb filter enabled of course :lol:

And the part that will make the trick:

In settings:

Video adujustments:
Brightness 10
contrast 200
Hue 0
Color 301
Color U 373
Color V 230

Overlay adjustments:(it's in settings too)

Brightness 83
contrast 100
Hue 0
Color 180 (radeon) 159 (geforce) (Don't ask, i need to change those colors :lol:)
gamma 1
sharpness 10

That would do the trick but it will still look washed out until you use a s-video cable. With rca ones i didn't like it but since i tried the s-video one it looks better than inmy tv and now my ps2 sits beside my pc.


n_w95482:
Do you mean i always see 30 fps in dscaler even if i'm deinterlacing it? I thought it would show 60 fames since it's non interlaced. Maybe it's the filter?

Thanks for the info. I dont have a problem with games being choppy, or do I? Is there any place where I can edit the framerate?

The stats in DScaler said it was playing the stream at 30 fps, even though GT4 does 60. I tried almost all of the filters but it didn't fix it.

Hot damn, GT4 runs at 60 fps? Now if I remember correctly, that's different. Does it make game play that much nicer? If so, I think I may have to pick it up just because of the different framerate.
