    Hey dudes,
    Any of you guys use the Realmagic PLUS card? Was wondering if it actually is as good as the reviews are saying it is.
    I have a Geforce 2 mx 32 with S-video output. I was wondering if this is equal to the hardware decoder resolution.
    Please any advice will help
    Thanks
    Jeff

    As far as on screen playback, if you have a good processor use a software player. The loop back cable required for the on screen playback hurts the image quality (especially at high rez), this is because of their outdated analog overlay chip.
    As far as TV out via S-Video, it will out perform any current graphics card TV out...
