    Ok am I dreaming or am I to understand that the new ATI Radeon 8500/DV will be able to output 1920x1080 resolution to a HDTV when they release there DVI to Component converter. ATI lists one of the screen resolutions of 1920x1080 on there website. Also the following was taken from there FAQ?

    When used with DVD the output is locked at 480p.

    Will this DVI-to-component adapter work with other DVI-enabled video cards?

    I dont believe it will but I could be wrong. The card probiably has to have the correct drivers to output the corect signal to the DVI interface. Yeah I know that ti will only do 480p for DVD but my primary use for hooking the computer to the TV will be for gameing and the occational websurfing. Currently the maximum you can output to a TV with the AIW is 1024x768 but its then dowconverted to NTSC. [​IMG] Output at 1920x1080 would kick ass, but seems to good to be true.
