Whatever happened to their "nView" multi-display utility? It used to be
bundled automatically with their driver downloads. It is just not available
for Vista 64-bit?

TJD:
NView is part of the NVidia Control Panel.
Go to Control Panel, Switch to Classic View, and click on the NVidia Control
Panel.
Your TV (or second display) must be previously connected so that you can use
Video and TV option.
I am not running the 162.22's (I have the 162.18's) so I cannot go further
on this newer release.

Just curious of your own experience level. I am running a Gforce 8600 (MSI
build) on a Windows Vista Platform. I have downloaded this driver and I am
currently using it. The new overscan compensation is great. Here my
question to you. I am not a gamer but I am using this computer to run a Home
Theatre . Windows Media Player as well as the major other DVD players all
have Horizontal line noise on my HDTV (only when playing a DVD). The only
software DVD player I can get to run a good picture is DVD X Player. DVD X
Player does not support DTS digital audio but (hard to believe) Windows Media
Player does. I am not getting a whole lot of help from MSI and Microsoft
would want me to pay to report the problem.
It's interesting to me that "DVD X" can write a software thast works on my
flat panel as well as my HDTV but windows Media player and the others that
use some of it's resources do not work. Anyway if you know of anybody or
anywhere I might find some information about my problem I would greatly
appreciate it.

Steve B

Steve:
MSI 8600 GTS down here.
I don't have much experience about plugging TV's to my display adapter
however, regarding to your issues let me suggest you something.
First of all, these are my assumptions, based on what you wrote.
1.- DVD X doesn't produce "horizontal line" noise
2.- Movie can be viewed with no "horizontal line" noise in your monitor with
any player you choose

Download and try the freeware "Media Player Classic"
(http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...er_Classic.htm) which has now
a "mod" converting it into "Home Cinema" (v1.0.9.0)
Go here: http://www.free-codecs.com/Media_Pla...c_download.htm and
grab it.
Media Player Classic has DTS built in decoding.
In order to get all those audio channels pounding in the air (I'm not at my
PC at home right now) there is a Filters option that is only available (i.e.
not grayed) during playback.
Go there and enable the 5.1 channels (default is 2).
Good luck!
Carlos
