http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey people, I have a bit of problem getting my PC monitor and TV set up and was hoping the esteemed ubuntu community might help me out. I have an Intel grapchics card on the motherboard, and installed a Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT card as well. My PC monitor is hooked up to the Nvidia card by VGA and running fine. The integrated Intel card has a VGA output, while the Nvidia has DVI and HDMI. I'm trying to hook this up to my TV which has a DVI input already occupied by my DVD-recorder, and a VGA input. If I use the the integrated VGA to connect to my VGA input on the screen I get a blank screen. I realize that I need to configure my xorg.conf, but finding this pretty damn hellish... Does anybody know how to do this? Or does anybody have any other ideas that might be a bit simpler? Cheers (Hardware)
