Earlier today I hooked up my PC to HDTV via Svideo. Needless to say it works, but the picture wasn't that great. I'm now looking at ways to output my 6800gt signal to componenet inputs on my TV.

I know there is a transcoder which has DVI to component, but its around $100. I also came across a cable (http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/video-to-vga.html#hd15rgb) that converts VGA to components for $20. Would such a cable work with a 6800gt or would it not be able to sync up?

I dont think it supports hdtv to tell ya the truth, thats why im going with the 6600GT instead.

you are confusng HDTV decoding with HDTV output. 6800 doesn't support former but does the latter. It can do almost twice the resolution of HDTV :D I know I could play @ 3200x1200 ;)

As for output, yeah u need a converter to use VGA or DVI output, if u really need component output u need a professional grade video-card which has such output built-in. 6600 has no such output either.

There are some 6600 gt that do have component output via a cable adapter.

Actually all the nv4x family support component output they just don't have the connectors.

As for the vga to component cable I'm not sure if the 6800 gt supports sync on green.

I got htdv (1280x720@50 & 1280x720@60p) to work on my electrohome 8111.
But i hat to use a vga-to rgb with separate h/s and vsync cable to use (fortunately the electrohome has separate h/s and vsync entrance)
There is no possibility (at least this is written in every usergroup) to get sync on green

Or you have to get a video scaler which offers this possibility (my inline 1404 does). But this gets quite expensive...
