Outputting composite video from a Hippotizer Posted by Nick Charalampidis on 29 August 2009 01:03 PM
Information: To output composite video from a Hippotizer is relatively simple, on old style cases you will need a small yellow adapter which was shipped with your system that connects into the small port between the two DVI ports on the output graphics card. On new R2 cases, there is a BNC connector marked Vid Out on the far right hand side of the rear of the system.
Make sure that you have a monitor or other composite video device connected before you continue.
The composite device should be recognised automatically, but if not you can go into Catalyst Control Centre (ATI control panel) and enable monitor 2 there (on some graphics cards it is actually recognised as monitor 3).
IMPORTANT: The composite video output replaces one of the DVI/VGA outputs and so you cannot use the DVI port or VGA connections at the same time on that output. Composite video normally replaces Output 2 so you can still use VGA / DVI on output 1.
Occasionally, some graphics cards will use Output1 as composite in which case you can use VGA/DVI on output2.
In Hippotizer treat your TV output just like any normal output, however you must only ever set the resolution to 720 x 576 or 1024 x 768 for it to work.
