TV-Out of the TNT2
Iām searching for a good board tom play Games
on openGL and also to play DVD in best quality on my TV.
Did anybody tested the DVD performance
( Soft DVD )on the new TNT 2 Ultra`s ?
At the moment I use a G200 and Voodoo2 SLI
on a 300A@464 Mhz, 128 Ram.
Or should I buy the G4oo Max and use my old Voodoo ladys also ?
Whatīs the best Soft DVD ?
Thanks for an answer

The only one I have heard info on has been on my card (the Xentor 32). I havent actually looked at the TV-out yet, and I dont have a DVD drive, so I cant tell you how it looks.
One of the sites that just did a review on it said its software DVD output to the TV was almost as good as some of the better decoder cards out there right now. If I can find it again, I will post it.
I dont want to sound like I am plugging my card here, but I am just telling you what I have heard. I havent actually seen it for myself, and probably wont until I do get a DVD drive which may not be for a while.
As for the g-400, I have not heard of anything on DVD on it, however, its OpenGL support is currently worse than most cards out there. DVD on a Rage Fury is good, because it supports alot of hardware decoding features. But it is alot slower than a TNT-2 in OpenGL. If OpenGL is what you want it for as well, I would take a look around for some reviews on the TNT-2. If you get one, keep your Dual V2's in there for GLide support and run the TNT-2 for most everything else.

Ok, it was at www.mydesktop.com's review of the Xentor that I heard about it... but the guy was actually saying this:
So it was actually hearsay of hearsay that I told you... sorry.
By the way, I hear the Xentor also provides good if not spectacular DVD decoding which is brought to life by the included Xing DVD software.
Read some of the sites like riva3d.com or planetriva.com, or others, there should be some info on the DVD somewhere.
