it has a make file and it looks like you need to setup a development enviroment to compile it.
that is only a nividia tvout driver for linux and all it currently does is changes overscan modes on PAL and NTSC xbox with composite cable.
why would you need it when there are plenty of distros that can output in multiple resolutions and formats.
also i believe in the newer kernels a new i2c driver was implemented and it broke control of the rol lights and it may not work on different newer kernels as i2c is used to control the tv out on the xbox.
or is there something I am missing ?
Allow me to clear this up. NOTTHESAME is asking about using this program to find low resolution modes on xbox. Namely on the conexant chip and maybe the focus, but def not the excalibur.
Since we know the addresses of the registers for conexant and focus, using nvtv should help find what values to use. We know Conexant can output 320x240 starting as it's lowest res mode, this is even stated in the datasheets.
Out of curiosity, what other programs are there that can make the xbox output in anything else besides 480i, 480p, and 720p? As far as i know 480i or 480p is the lowest i have seen ANY program get the xbox to output, i have limited knowledge with nvtv, but ive spoke with the creator of it and this program CAN be used to find this value.
And to clear one more thing up obviously this will benefit older game consoles being emulated on the xbox, as using this res on anything else would be just plain silly. If you have any info or insight please let me know, Im not top level video guy but do work on patching things into the emulators.
