Default Extending desktop to TV.

I recently did some re-organisng of my room so that I could put extend my desktop to my TV when i felt like playing a game on my TV or watching a video on my TV. My video card came with an S video to composite (or component, the yellow one) jack so I can hook my computer up to my TV. (its the old CRT type of TV) I hooked the stuff up but when i go to extend my desktop to a second monitor in CCC it enables it for a split second then disables it.

Thanks

ok try this to see if its the video card and not the tv: open CCC and go to basic view and set it up just for the tv and see if it will work.

It works but it does not let me have 2 monitors at once.

it detects that the TV is there but it just does not let me use it as a secondary monitor, it is probably a driver issue. ATI always seems to have crappy drivers.

I've always had a TV as a secondary monitor on my Desktop. Now I use a DVR as a monitor. ATI All-in-Wonder cards were designed for this purpose. On a regular ATI card with analog outputs, it maybe just an either/or function.
