  • All in one ATX motherboard w/TV out?

    Does anyone know a good integrated (built in sound/video/EtherNet) with a TV out? I'm considering building a simple system for watching Divix, MPEG and AVI videos on a real TV instead of my computer monitor...

      Check out this board:

      The datasheet gives you all the details on the tv-out and sound interfaces.

        I don't really need anything that small, just a standard ATX motherboard. I was just wondering if any of them come with a TV out...

            If size is not an issue, why go with an integrated board? In my experience, the component quality is never as good as with add-on cards - I find this is especially true of video cards. With good AGP video cards with built in TV-out and MPEG decoding available so cheap, this seems like the better option.
            If you like having integrated components, look at something like the Soyo SY-K7V Dragon board. It has onboard 6 channel audio (also has SPDIF and optical outs) and onboard LAN, but no onboard video. This would allow you to use a good AGP video card but not have to worry about PCI audio or LAN cards.

              Do you know where I can find info on the FV-24? I've tried looking it up, but basically got 0 useful results....Shuttle does not show up in our catalog either....

              The reason I want an integrated motherboard is mainly a cost thing. I want to do this cheap. Since the board is just for playing videos, I'm not really concerned about having the ultimate graphics performance. Even the crappiest chipset available these days can still do 30FPS at 640x480.

                  Aaron:

                  Goto http://www.pricewatch.com and do a search for fv24. That should give you a cuple places to buy it from.

                      I took your advice and got one of these motherboards. Along with my power supply it should kick ***. The box I made tonight is 8 inches by 7.5 inches by 3 inches high. Mpegbox 2 was 9.5 by 9.5 by 4. Maybe this one will fit under my seat and not get stolen. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
