    Last HTPC Question...I Promise

    In case you haven't noticed i've already asked enough questions for htpc which i'm am going to build. Thanks to your resposnses i have a motherboard capable of video processing and an amd processor both relatively cheap. What I need to know and this is the main thing i dont understand is how do i connect it to a tv. The tv it will be connected to will be an old 32" crt type one... the connection to it will most likely have to be scart because the speakers are built into the tv and it doesn't support hd. All i need to know is will the graphics capabilties of this motherboard be able to support this screen during dvd playback etc...

    I guess you would need something like this
    Computer Cleaning Products, Scart Cables, USB Devices and Networking Tools at MVS

    It's perhaps a better Idea to get this board

    as it comes with all manor of tv outputs

    You could also get a cheap PCI-e graphics card with S-Video (which can be converted to composite and then to SCART through an adaptor). You'd then feed the sound into the same SCART adaptor through another lead.

    If you've got a network already:-

    (One of the original media extenders, still good for non-HD content.)

    Ideally though, you'd get an HD ready TV and just pipe everything over HDMI.
