what O/S?

When I setup mine, it automatically started up a (Nvidia) NView wizard the next time I started windows. It then allowed me to step through the process of setting up dual displays and added the second desktop to the display properties for which I could then divide the screen between the two displays or switch between the two.

I noticed that it wouldn't let me play DVD using the TV-out unless I disabled the main monitor display. It was a copy protection error, other than that I've done it on Windows XP pro and Windows 2000 so I know it works at least on those O/S's.

Try using the latest Nvidia drivers and see if there is a setting for enabling the S-Video out. If the card is disabling the feature than that could be preventing the card from automatically detecting the new display.

good luck
