I just switched from an ATI 7000 to an Inno3d Ti4200. The 4200 performance is great but man is the TV out signal lame. The ATI TV out image was perfect but the 4200 produces a heavily flickered image no matter the flicker filter setting. I have to convert from s-video to composite with either card since my TV only accepts composite. Unfortunately the TV is 50ft away which probably doesn't help matters, but like I said the ATI worked fine. Any insights to remedy this are welcome. Thank you.
What exact leadtek product do you have? I got a leadtek GF3 the second it came out, so I have one of their first (prolly earlier revision than most). It works wonderfully. As for modding, I meant possibly changing out the adapter, but u'd have to be really familiar with the circuitry, etc.
Does the encoder chip vary as Ti4200 manufacturer varies?
I bought the Inno3d because it was one of the two Ti4200 makers I could find that advertised TVO res of 1024x768, so I was hoping to get better picture quality since they went to the trouble to provide 1024x768. Bad assumption apparently.
I havent gotten a card w/ TV-Out since my TNT2-Ultra(I think it was ultra).....Was a diamond card. I had TV out on my first TNT also, but didnt learn from that. They both SUCKED, so I stayed away from cards w/ TV out since then. Although I have heard good things about the ATi TV-Out quality, so I may go that route in the future.
