I use the iv out on my creative dxr3 dvd decoder. The tv out on my voodoo3 works ok, but since tv's don't have as good as resolution as computer monitors, it's hard to read anything on the tv

Sometimes I use my Matrox G400 with DVDMax but it is long to move my computer/mouse/keyboard... from my room to the other room. Also I don't have a Widescreen TV (or one that does 16X9 compression) so I like the extra lines provided by the anamorphic transfer but they I can only benefit from them on my monitor.

After about 3.5 years with a Tv out on my card, I've used it seriously 4-5 times I can remember.
