NVidia, SVideo Out, Netflix and DRM
The other day I went to watch a streaming video on netflix, and I started to get DRM issues- and then I had to re-install the little add-on to make it work. It still didn't work. It popped up some kind of microsoft error web page which told me next to nothing.
If you have Netflix, an Nvidia video card, and are trying to use the S-Video out to watch netflix movies on your television, the bad news is that Nvidia goofed and you can't.
If you've called Netflix, their solution is to hook up a second monitor, blah blah blah. Nobody wants a second monitor in their living room.
If you don't use the pc for much more than just watching Netflix movies on your TV, there is a simple solution: uninstall the Nvidia drivers. They are what allows the DRM to "function", that is, block you from watching what you've paid to watch.
Restart your pc. Windows will start up with its native drivers, attempt to search for something better, and if you direct it correctly, it will fail and now you're done- you want it stuck with the 'generic' windows drivers because they don't support the built-in DRM on the Nvidia card.
Watch all the Netflix you want, and hopefully someday Nvidia will fix their dumb old driver issue.
