Is there a video input card for component video?

My new computer than is coming has a card for standard cable and for S-video, but it would be nice to be able to plug component in as well, and run that through the VGA out. Anyone know of one?

The Holo3Dgraph-I has a component input, and refurbs could be had for $330.

What are you wanting to hook up via component? Are you wanting to use it as a passthrough to your X1? Give a little detail & I think I may have a solution if it's what I'm thinking you want to do.

Well, there you go.

I see there's a new one at a lower new price of only $795.

If you only need 480i there appears to be a component-in card for only 149.00.

The H3D-II won't work; it is a self-contained video processor-on-a-card, and sends no data over the PCI bus.

The thought would be to take my component video devices (x-box and dvd player) and put them into my receiver. Then the receiver would go into the computer and pass through to the X1 so that I only need to run one cable throught the roof, and don't have to switch plugs.
