    i have a progressive NTSC TV (well its pal but only accepts progressive in ntsc) and i would like to connect to my MCE pc which has a geforce Ti4200. I would like to get the standard ntsc resolution (720x480p?). Is there a conversion process needed?

    i noticed that ATI cards seem to output component via vga/dvi, but wondered whether the ati cards used "spare" pins to carry it. Just sold my ati radeon 9800pro and bought this cheapo card to gain some cash :( .

    What TV do you have (make and model)?

    If the input is limited to component (YUV) you would needs some converter, VGA or DVI are not compatible to YUV.

    hi thanks for the reply, its a toshiba 28zd26p, but i cant really afford a converter, it was a sort of "if its possible i might as well" kind of thing, but dont have any movies on the PC yet anyway.
