My HTPC is about built. Instead of the fanless 6600GT I was planning I had a rush of blood got one the above, overkill I know but its won't just be a HTPC and it doesn't have to be that silent. Rest of the box specced to be pretty quiet anyway. The build is halted while I hunt down a factoid re the behaviour of the card as it fires up with the fan at full speed only goes 'sane' when the drivers kick in on operating system start. (hope I don't have send anything back..) This hiatus means I can't carry on and try and find out myself but I am just itching to know so I post this.... Doc on the card says that it has a Game Replay feature whereby it captures the game progress/screen/ in an Mpeg4 stream. Now I gotta know if anyone has this card out there and have they used this feature, with success, to capture say, maybe a fullscreen showing of a DVD. This could be a real easy way to compress to Mpeg4. I am thinking. especially for recordings made on my DVD recorder.
