I have a PNY Verto 6800GT AGP (VCG6800GAPB) and am wondering if there is a way to take the card driectly to component video (the red green blue rca connecor type, y pb pr connectors on my tv). I have seen nvidia branded dongles floating around the internet. PNYs site doesnt state Y Pb Pr support for the card, but I am looking for anyones success stories if any.

Sad news: the card is on PNYs discontinued parts page and its only 6 months old! :eek:

Thanks for any input.

Are you talking about HDTV output?

My set is a 20" analog set with HDTV inputs (480i or somthing like that). I know they are component (labeled y pb pr right on the set). *EDIT would this be better posted on a support forum?*

i think theres a DVI to composite connector
found a link to one. it says for ATI card, but it will work for all DVI (heh they probably tricked a lot of genius ppl)

Ive read reports of those not working well at all for nVidia cards, or only giving 2 garbled colors.
