I'm looking to build a PC to output to a SCART to RF converter so it can
be piped via RF through a building to display an automatically updating
As the box I'm going to be using only takes a composite video input I am
on the lookout for a cheap and cheerful PCI Express video card with TV out.
Now I've been looking into this and it appears that TV out support using
free drivers on either ATI or NVidia is a bit sketchy (i.e. I can't find
anything conclusive). I know that using the proprietary drivers on
either an ATI or NVidia card the TV output would work fine, but I was
wondering if anyone has managed to get the free drivers (xf86-video-ati,
radeonhd, xf86-video-nv) working with one of the newer cards (Radeon
X1550, GeForce 7200GS etc).
