TV out to RPTV?

    I've been into home cinema for several years, but became PC literate more recently!
    Here's my current config:

    Philips 46"RPTV
    Pioneer DV444 Multi region DVD
    Yamaha RVX620RDS Receiver
    Kef spkrs etc...


    Dell 4100
    PIII 933mhz
    nVidia GeForce 2 GTS(no TV out)
    NEC 5700A DVD drive(firmware flashed-region free)
    SoundBlaster Live Value sound card(with digital out)
    WinDVD 3.0 Software player.

    I now want to output from the PC to my TV. I have tried Creative's PC-DVD Dxr3. Good DVD playback(on TV), but it doesn't allow me output games, & the player interface is crap.

    Tried the Trust Televiewer(scan converter) but the picture on TV was unstable-unwatchable.

    I'd like to be able to watch DVDs from the PC on the RPTV, run the occasional game on the tele, view pictures etc...

    The PC's a year old, & the graphics card was expensive at the time, so I dont want to scrap it if I can.

    What should I do? I am hoping to acquire a DLP/LCD projector in the next 6-12 months, as I'm currently upgrading all my equipment, so any new acquisitions will need to be suitable for this.

    Replace my graphics card for one with TV out?

    What steps should I take to enable me output to TV with the best results? The PC is used for normal activities, so it wont be a dedicated HCPC, at least for the time being.

    Help/advice really appreciated.
