The news about NVIDIA sucking for HTPC does not surprise me, but it is saddening that I can't use already owned hardware.
And I've got three S Video adapters, all them the same. All of them useless to me.


Just found one of these bad boys in my 4870x2 box. I doubt it'd work though. (Really big picture)
That should work fine with pretty well any ATI card that has a S Video jack.

You can try a PM to Supergrover to see if he had any luck with Nvidia cards and composite output. I know he put a lot of time in trying to get it to work with one of those 5 1/4 bay LCD displays, but suspect he finally ended up with an ATI card.
