    PCI Card with just TV outs (2)???

    I'm wondering if there is such a thing as a PCI Card with just TV outs (hopefully 2). I would like to keep my current AGP card but still distribute video signals to 2 headrest monitors. Any suggestions?

    well I have NO TV-out's on anything on my car comp. I guess it needn't be PCI.. it's just what I had in my head @ the time. Anything really.

    usually a rca signal is strong enough to split at least 2 ways. Just buy a splitter, radio shacks..$4
    Mine needs to be updated.

    What am I supposed to split here? The idea of a TV out?

    oops sorry,

    But I do remember a link somewhere on how to add RCA video out from your video card. I cant find it though.
    ..i'll post if I find it again.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    If you need TV out and don't want to replace your AGP card, you could look into a cheap ATI video card. I have a xpert2k w/ tv out that cost me like $25. Granted its AGP, but they do make a pci version. Then you could split the rca out. Doing this isn't the best way, as you would now have multiple video cards.

    What type of video card are you using right now? And why don't you want to replace it. I could see not replaceing it if it was a new card like a GeForce 4 or ATI Radeon.

    Well now i know why you don't want to replace the card.

    The only other option is to run dual video cards or find a site that converts the rbg signals to composite. Running dual video cards isn't a very good way to go about it though.

    What type of geforce 4 card. Does it use the DVI connector with a adapter to go from lcd to a 15pin connector? Or is it just straight 15pin connector. What other connectors are on the card?
