I have the nVidia GeForce 4 MX 420 and I know it has TV-out capabilities. I've looked at nvtv but it does not work for me, to my knowledge. So is there something else I can do to get it working or will I forever be stuck watching movies on my monitor which isn't exactly small, but is not as big as a TV (I have no DVD player aside from the computer)?

magnet, you can use tvout on the nvidia, but you'll need to modifiy /etc/X11/xorg.conf

You'll have to use the binary nvidia drivers as well. There is a very lengthy FAQ/README that comes with nvidia that will explain how to do it...

Later,

Thanks! That was definitely a step in the right direction, I have it working perfectly now. I just modified a small section of XF86Config and it displays perfectly on my TV. Here's what I have now, in case anyone is interested.

Code:
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   VendorName   "HP"
   ModelName    "MX75"
   DisplaySize  320   240
   HorizSync    30.0 - 70.0
   VertRefresh  47.0 - 120.0
   Option        "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Videocard0"
   Driver      "nvidia"
   VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
   BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
   Option "TwinView"
   Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
   Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
     Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-90"
   Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768"
   Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
   Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Videocard0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth     16
   SubSection "Display"
      Depth     16
      Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
   EndSubSection
   SubSection "Display"
      Depth     24
      Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
   EndSubSection
   SubSection "Display"
      Depth 32
      Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
   EndSubSection
   SubSection "Display"
      Depth 8
      Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
   EndSubSection
EndSection
