I would like to have this clarified: You mean obviously with TV-output
here analog tube-TV?
Rather than today's flat panels which have HDMI and which get 100% perfect
output from nVidia?

We have nVidia in our home theater PC (which is running Ubuntu) and it
is connected with HDMI to the HD-video projector.
Another video source is Playstation 3, which surprise surprise,
outputs its picture digitally through HDMI.
The picture is perfect obviously because it is digital and every pixel
gets displayed as it should (from both the computer and PS3).

Is someone still using displays without HDMI these days? If I go to a
shop and look around TV-models, I can hardly find
any model which would not have HDMI. So at least in my vocabuary at
least, TV output = DVI = HDMI. And Matrox has
no use for this purpose. Who wants to use component video these days.
It hurts my eyes if I look picture from my
old DVD-player with component video.
