    Are you talking about TV *input*?.. I've *always* used TV cards on CRT monitors set to 85Hz, never have any problems with it. TFTs aren't even concerned with refresh rates since they simpily refresh the last transmitted pixels into the array.

    It's not an issue with flicker from refreshing, no, but it's still an irregular image compared to what the input is, and therefor not a consistant display. Have a look around The Green Button and similar sites - it's a well documented issue with ATI cards.

    I assume this problem exists with AIW cards, I never owned one so I've no idea what it's TV-in rendering software is like.. however in this case I belive the OP is looking for a graphics card for S-Video(or scarlet)-out, so it's nothing fancy like that.

    greetings.

    I have a x1300 and its a great card, handles every game to date, and media is quite well to, with the Catalyst control center you can configure hydravision, avivo , etc. A great card for games and media.
