I'm not sure if nvidia edited their page but I'm looking at the page again and it says:
"HD DVD / Blu-ray Video Playback on NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT is classified as Excellent. HD DVD / Blu-ray Video Playback on NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra, GeForce 8800 GTX and GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB/640MB are...

I have just bought a Hauppauge PVR 150 MCE for my HTPC, and I have plugged it in to an Asus M2A VM HDMI motherboard (690G chipset). This motherboard has 3 ways to output audio, S/PDIF, analog, and via HDMI. I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate. I'm connecting my satellite decoder's audio output...
Thanks for your reply!
Thing is, I'm still gonna play alot of SD DVDs and I'm abit worried that the PC can't upscale as good as a dedicated HDMI DVD player. Is that perception wrong?
Still need to know if the PC DVI output enough to display 720p?
I'm gonna be getting a HD ready LCD TV soon and I'm thinking of setting up a mini HTPC to play HD video (not necessarily bluray or HDDVD). I've alot of questions so I hope you all can share with me if you know.
Firstly, my TV will only have one HDMI input (Regza) so I'm not sure...
Heres something useful...
On a related topic, would viewing an LCD monitor too close have any health effects on the eyes? Our moms have always been telling us to not sit too close to the TV, but thats a CRT which has slight electrons (I think) emitting through the glass.
For $100 cheaper, I'd go for the 225BW. It has an inferior panel to the 215TW, but for your purpose of only gaming + web + office, its sufficient. Also, heard that the 215TW has significant input lag, so that is a deal breaker for gaming.
I myself have a VA panel, and it pleases me to no...
I think this begs the question, why do they come up with DVDs with the 2.35:1 aspect ratio, when there are no TVs or monitors that actually has that aspect ratio? It really defeats the whole purpose. On a side note, what aspect ratio does the cinema normally show?
I don't think the general consensus is that the 2007 S-PVA is much much worse than the 2007 S-IPS, its just that when someone buys a 2007, they have the S-IPS in mind. If they so happen to get a S-PVA instead, alot would bitch about that, but I don't think even they would say its much much...
Watch a normal WS movie in a 20"WS and a 20" 4:3, and see which one gives you more movie space.
IMO, if your monitor is mainly used for movies, WS is definately the way to go. Getting a 4:3 screen will definately be wasteful, as your money goes into giving you bigger black bars at the top...

BTW Mr Zodiac, a screencap using fraps or printscreen wont work in showing you the scaling quality coz you will just see a normal 1024x768 screenshot...
I just got my VX2025WM 5 days back, loving every inch of it.
I have a 7900GS with 92.91 forceware, and honestly I expected scaling to be broken based on the comments here (not the more recent ones), but I was pleasantly surprised. Centred scaling and Locked fixed aspect ratio works as...
