    I have a very nice vga-tv converter from AITech for $50. Its a cable only, so its nice and compact for the car. I have seen very very little loss of quality. I highly recommend it. It's part # Webcable 1108 (NTSC)and can be found here: http://store.yahoo.com/aitech/gifts.html
    Hope this helps

    Have a look at analog devices website for AD724, this is a small ic that converts vga to PAL/NTSC using minimal external components. im going to build one hopefully next week. They also have free samples.

    do a search on analog devices in altavista. found it in 2 minutes!! have ordered samples, but you got to fill out a questionaire first ;-( from the data sheet it looks like we still have to set the hsync and vsync to ntcs/pal standards , so it will depend on the video card/chipset you have .
