TV-out card that displays in Overscan area?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Jim Patterson, Apr 14, 2004.

  1. I have an older ATI All-In-Wonder card that has TV out jacks, but it
    always has a slight black border around the edges (it's not very
    noticeable on a TV, but is on a projector).

    ATI says the RADEON cards don't have this problem...but the cheapest
    RADEON card I can find with TV-out is about $200.

    That seems pretty steep for simply outputting video to there
    a cheaper card that will do this?

    My Nvidia FX5600 based card has adjustable TV out size.

    They were going for about $125 at, last time I looked.

    If you don't need that much 3D power you can take a look at the FX5200
    based cards which go for $60-70.

    Check out I recently bought a couple of Radeon 9600 (ATI
    chipset off-brand) cards for work at $70 each including shipping. It has TV
    out, VGA, and DVI. You will probably need to view all 9600 video cards and
    sort by price.

    I don't have a lot of confidence in ATI's claim wrt the overscan issue.
    From what I know Matrox is possibly the only card maker that does this

    Have you tried the latest drivers and control panel. There is a setting
    for overscan. I have a Radeon VE and it worked with that. The button for
    overscan is in advanced - displays - adjustments.

    Try <>. It might
    allow you to switch into an overscanned mode.

    (For more information, see <> and read
    on from the paragraph where it says "One other problem you
    will run into, the ATI 128 card's video-out leaves a black
    border at the top and bottom of your TV display...".)
