I have a fx 5200 with a video out rca for my tv. I want to be able to display the whatever is on my monitor, on my TV. The problem is, in the past,I have had to basicly screw around with the settings to get the thing to display on my tv. As of right now, if i set up the card for duel display, the resolution on my monitor goes down and my tv goes nuts displayin nothing but a grey version of my desktop scrolling down the screen very fast. I dont understand what Im doing worng here. Any Ideas?

this is not my area of expertise...but I don't think you can run it as a dual display because the resolutions are so different...if its right for one it would be wrong for the other or vice versa..

No TV can match the resolution of todays monitors.
To make it work you would probably have to lower the resolution on monitor.
What model TV and what is the max resolution it can handle?
If not know what make and model and maybe Happyrock and myself can find the information for you. :) :)
