Graphics card using TV_OUT and no monitor?


Standard Member

I need a graphics card that can work without a monitor attached?
AGP or PCI, as I have integrated graphics on my motherboard at the moment.

I want to build a media PC that outputs to my TV, and it will not have a monitor.

is there a card that can do the above, I was going to use the matrox g450, but apparently it only works if it has a monitor on port one?

I have been trying all day to solve this problem and I need your help!

No idea about newer cards, but I'm using an old Geforce MX400 PCI card without a monitor attached and the s-video works fine.

I imagine new cards work the same (I'm just too cheap to find out)
