    I currently have a GeForce256 Deluxe. I'm running WinXP Pro on my PC. Does anyone know of anyway I can make it output 16x9 progressive out the S-Video port? If I can't, can anyone recommend a video card that will allow me to do this?

    Rob, there is no card that will allow you to output a progressive scan signal through S-Video. S-Video can only be used for NTSC signals. To output any progressive signal you will need to be using either a VGA connector or Component output. After that there are lots of options to get a nice progressive output from your HTPC, I am just getting into this myself, but www.AVSForum.com has tons of information in the Home Theater PC section.
