eVGA Personal Cinema Review - Page 3 of 8

AUDIO / VIDEO BREAKOUT BOX

Since the TV Tuner takes up some vital real estate at the bracket end of the card, thereís only room for one connection to the monitor. eVGA has opted to use a DVI adapter and have included a DVI-to-VGA converter for CRT monitors. Thereís still one adapter that remains to be covered, and is the most interesting of the bunch. Itís at this connection that the audio/video breakout box is connected. The 41 pins are responsible for transmitting both the audio and video signals to and from the computer system and the attached peripheral. Besides connecting the audio/video breakout box, this connector also sports a connection for a secondary monitor.

As is the case with the rest of the GeForce4 lineup, the cards support output for two displays, not three. As such, the user has the choice of a dual-monitor system or a dual-display system composed of a monitor and a TV. Of course, a few quick clicks within the nView menu will allow one to switch between both setups with ease. The audio/video breakout box also has to connect to your sound card in order to input or output the audio. This is done through a couple wires which connect to the speaker out and mic/line in jacks of your sound card. Sound can also be input or output from the Personal Cinema system via internal RF inputs located atop the card.
