In the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. I added the following to the -- Section "Device" -- portion of the xorg.conf file:

Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "TVOverScan" "0.6"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"


To edit the xorg.conf file, I had to use <CTRL><ALT><F1> to get to the console, and then I logged in as root.

This fix is required because there were problems with the nvidia drivers detecting if the TV was connected to the computer.

Hi There,

I ran into a same problem with my Happa 150 cards. I have 2 of them configured differently, they are both on the same Happa chipset.

The first one is for Analog TV and has an RG-6 connector stright from the wall to the card.

The second one connects to a DCT2524, it connects to the Happa 150 thru the componet (Yellow, Red and White) cables.

There was a huge sound difference between the two of them, I could hardly hear the second one connected with the componet cables (I even swapped out the cables).

What I ended up doing was to exit Myth and go to Apps\Sound\Anmix and adjust the PCM settings to 100% (don't forget to press S to save). This helped a gread deal and now I can hear the recordings. By default it looks like the 150 was set to around 70% of the PCM and you can't hear a thing.

Hope this helps.
