    I had this problem too. On my old MX400 and on my new FX5200. It's the drivers. Trust me. It seems to have nothing to do with how recent the drivers are. Most work fine, but some produce the TV out error. Did you uninstall the drivers first?

    Anyway, just thought I would add my experience. It already sounds like you've figured out the problem.

    Well i'm not on my brothers PC at the moment... But yeh i think it was the 40.72's that i currently have running on it & DVD playback works fine.

    This is the reply email I got back from nvidia support about this issue
    Thank you for your email. This error message generally appears when the tv encoder on the video card is failing the Macrovision checks. If the video card is still under warranty, please contact the maker of the video card to have your video card repaired. If the card is no longer under warranty, you can try downgrading your video card to the driver version 40.72 which did not feature Macrovision checks. You may download this driver from:

    NVIDIA Technical Support
    So yeh, for future reference everyone, if you are having trouble playing dvd's with an nvidia card, try these drivers & if it then works you know what the problem is!

    30.82!!! Those were the ones I always used.!
    But yeah, you can check later versions and try to see if they work.!
    Tell us how it goes.

    Ok... Going by this

    Anything before 41.09's should work...

  • December 22nd, 2003, 03:57 AM

    Looks like from this thread 30.82's are the lastest drivers that will work for me with dvd playback on the gf2 mx...

  • December 22nd, 2003, 03:46 AM
    Thanks. I'll give them a go & see if they like DVD playback or not.

    Now that i've been thinking about it... I remember someone else on here having the same dvd playback issue on a gf2mx & i think it too was driver issues...

  • December 21st, 2003, 10:24 AM
    I think the 30.32 (or was it 32.30 ... damn... don't remember) were the best ones for the gf2 mx400 regarding performance and quality. I never changed from those drivers so maybe they will do you good too.!

    Well it seems to be a driver related problem. Installed the older 29.42 drivers and it works fine.

    Now the fun begins working out which drivers are the latest it can run while maintaining dvd playback.

  • December 21st, 2003, 07:57 AM
    dang i thought it would have one for each port

    what are you options under display adapters
  • December 21st, 2003, 07:39 AM
    Sorry dood i got no idea what your talking about, i've been using nvidia cards for a while now and have never seen a TV Out to disable in dev mgr.

    I just tried using older video card drivers (44.03) incase that was the problem. But still same errors...

    Maybe i'll give another set of drivers a shot...

  • December 21st, 2003, 07:33 AM
    the tv out
  • December 21st, 2003, 07:10 AM
    Disabling what in dev mgr?

    Just tried NvDVD, and get this error "Macrovision Distribution Failed. Playback Stopped."

  • December 21st, 2003, 07:04 AM
    did you try disabling it in the device manager anyways
  • December 21st, 2003, 06:59 AM
    previously win98se.

    Nup its not using generic video card drivers. Drivers are the latest from nvidia (53.03 dets)

  • December 21st, 2003, 06:53 AM
    what os were you using befor the format my guess is that win 2k installed a generic driver so where the tv out was enabled but it is not working properly due to the driver try disableing it in device manager

    PowerDVD4 TVout Error

    Hey all,

    I've just finished formatting my brothers PC & installed win2k on it.

    I'm just goin thru the process of installing the apps back on there. When i try to play a dvd with powerdvd4 (was previously using powerdvd3 before the format) i get a error pop up saying "TheTV Out port of your display card is not working properly.", when i click on details i get this "This copy protected disc can not be played when the TV out function is enabled."

    Now the thing is i havent enabled TV Out... The only thing connected to the video card is the monitor.

    Heres the system specs:

    1.13Ghz Athlon tbird
    128mb pc133
    64MB gf2 mx
    SB Live Value
    Pioneer 16x DVD
    20gig hdd
    Win2k with all updates
    53.03 dets
    latest 4in1's

    Anyone got any idea's what could be causing this problem?

    Thanks in advance
