    You have to set your tv to the correct channel. For example for my RCA I have to set it to Channel 91 - thats the channel I have assigned to to the S-Video input yours may be input or 2, etc. Also be aware that most tv's will only display a resolution of 800 X 600. Also make sure you enable the tv dispaly in the control panel - under 'twinview' I think.

    I know all of that,Thanks but you have misunderstood. EVERYTHING shows up on my tv EXCEPT video when i play it.I see the video player and all its controls and it is playing on my moniter but the video part does not show on the tv.The player is blank.
    I mucked around in my display settings but it must be the video card settings because i can get it to work on my tv then it wont work on my moniter and vise versa.
