Hi

I have installed ATI Radeon 9200 graphic card in my system. When I connect
the card to my tv I see my desktop perfectly on the tv screen. When I play a
movie in a movie player I can also see it on my tv. But when I use a movie
player that support subtitling I dont see the subtitle on my tv. I do see
the subtitle on the pc. Also the picture of the movie on my tv is dark, when
i try adjust the brightness for my tv ( in the properties for Radeon 9200
series window on my pc) I dont see the changes on my tv screen. In other
words the darkness of the movie on my tv stays.

How and what must I do to solve this both problems for my tv screen ( no
subtitle and dark picture when playing movie).


regards

For subtitle:
Use media player classic, in DX7-renderless mode. Uninstall directvob/sub or
something if you have installed them.
For darkness:
Try setting overlay brightness. Or check if theater mode is enabled, if not,
enable it.

Hi

Theater mode is enabled on the Clone Mode Options. Is the overlay brightness
the only way to make the picture bright on the tv screen?

And where can I downlaod media player classic? I have looked on the internet
but no result. And what is the DX7 renderless mode?

Regards

Hi Marco
Well, seems you do have theater mode correctly setup.

Mediaplayer classic MPC is just like Windows Media Player 6.4, but on some
serious steroids! It is the most powerful player around, and is 1 single
file.
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=8...

DX7(or DX9-) renderless mode make the subtitles appear inside the picture,
meaning, they are rendered with the picture, ie part of the picture itself.
I can't explain it better, you'll see what i'm talking about.

As for brightness, adjusting through TV-settings always worked for me laptop
with mobility9000 card. Funny it don't work for you.

If you don't like overlay adjustment, you could also try to adjust the
settings within the decoder filter itself. I.E if movie is divx, right click
on mpc window, select filter->divx. there you could adjust the brightness.
MPC has built in decoder for mpeg, that allow color adjusting.

Tell me if you find it.

Lets see.. subtitles:
Go to mpc option, playback, and tick "Auto-load subtitles". Also make sure
to enable "DX7/9 renderless" for directshow under output. Restart the
player.

Make sure that subtitle file has *same* name as the movie. Like subtitle for
"Gundam.avi" should be "Gundam.sub" (or srt etc..) and in the same
directory.

You're welcome. We're here to help each other out, aren't we?

How come I know so much.. well guess i remember stuff when i see it. Having
used every windows version over last 8 years from Windows3.11 --> XP does
give you some experience. Also I try to solve such problems myself, mainly
because none of my friends know anything about pc, so i'm on my own. :) 

Oh and you can learn it too. Just never be afraid to try out new things and
programs, browse newsgroups, forums, read FAQ and readme's. There are many
many sites that give info about tweaking in general.
BTW: did you ever read forum at divx.com? It is full of very helpful posts.
