I can't find anywhere if there
a) is a 5000 series card with a s-video port out (doubt it)
b) if I can use a vga > s-video adapter and get the desired result.
Anyone have any experience with the 5000 series and svideo/composite?
If it cannot, can an nVidia 200 series do this?
I tried a DVI to s-video adaptor on my 5870 - no luck. I could get a signal to my tv, but nothing clear. I suspect it's because the TV has a refresh rate of 30Hz, and I couldn't get the card to go below 60Hz. I added a 3650 to my system for TV-out, and that works fine, but obviously I'm not doing anything like gaming on the TV.
