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.
