@fiero79, please ensure that your directory structure is this:

Code:
Arduino (your sketchbook directory)
    |
    +--libraries
          |
          +--TVout
          |
          +--TVoutfonts
          |
          +--pollserial

Restart Arduino after you install the TVout libraries in this manner.  If you still have a compilation problem, please post it exactly using copy/paste so we can see what is going on.

I built this plugged it in the tv and nothing happened. I cheked my circuit, centre pin through 1k to pin 9 ,centre pin through 470r to pin 7 ,. For some reason the pal woks better than NTSC though I live in canada where NTSC is used. see attached pics for result of tests. in pal i can barely see the text and it moves diagonally. can someone please help make it work?

After updating to Arduino IDE 22 I think that someone needs to address the issue of where custom libraries go. I put the Files for TVout into the sketch folder    \My Documents\Arduino\libraries, and that didn't work.  I added it to the C:\Program Files\arduino\arduino-0022\libraries directory, and it works now. at least it compiles now, I will try it with the hardware later.

Hi, I would like to ask if is possible to mix output of Arduino TVout and composite signal of videocamera?
I would write a bit of information superimposed on the camera image.
See attachment for example.
Thanks.
Bye bye.

Yes, the Video Experimenter shield allows you to do exactly that (and many other things).

This project shows text/graphics generated from TVout being overlayed on a composite signal:

Very good smiley
Compliment for your job smiley
But, do you know the cpu charge with tvout?
Arduino can work togheter tvout with other  processes for example calculation of GPS coordinate?
Thanks.
Bye.

The CPU load is surprisingly workable:

http://arduino.cc/blog/2010/11/16/arduino-realtime-audio-spectrum-analyzer-with-video-out/
Using the TVout lib, I made a spectrum analyzer- which not only performs the TVout, but also manages to do the sampling and fourier transformations in realtime.

So, there's PLENTY for some GPS calcs...

When the testing is complete there will be... cake.

I agree, there's plenty of CPU time for most applications.  I have written complex video games with lots of geometric calculation, and all my games have needed to be artificially slowed down with delays so that the player can keep up.   smiley-lol

Hi, I must only superimpose strings in another video source.
For my needs, Video experimenter is too big.
Is possible to have electrical scheme for build a small pcb?
I must using arduino mini for space exigence and weight.
Thanks.

Yes, you could design a small PCB that uses an SMD version of the LM1881.  Sounds like you are trying to build a drone, huh?

My ideas is to build a telemetry system for multicopter used for fpv.
