    wtf. im hoping there is just something wrong.

    i just built an msi mega 180 multimedia pc, and was going to just use my tv instead of a monitor to use it for dvd,mpeg,mp3,etc playback in my living room.

    so i just got my tv-out to tv cable, plugged it in and everything works great. comps on tv no problem. but when i play a video, it shows nothing but black where the video should be! wtf?!

    how can i fix this?

    thanks!!!

    There's probably a better way to fix this problem, but turn off the hardware acceleration under the video card settings. I would definately talk to your hardware vendor for a better fix because this will slow down games.

    make sure the tv is set to be the primary monitor in the display properties, i THINK that will fix it. if it doesnt, play around with which output is primary and which is the extended desktop(switch it back and forth a couple of times).

    Agreed, need system specs to help efficiently.
