need PCI nvidia video card with Conexant TV chip
I'm looking for the right video card to fill the PCI slot in an EPIA board. The subject tells most of the story. Does anyone know of an nvidia *PCI* card with the Conexant CX2587x series tv-encoder chip? My search for this card has been more difficult than I expected since nobody seems to advertise what TV chip they use in the specifications. I assume the card will be a geforce2 or 3 because PCI was more popular back then and I understand the geforce4 MX and geforceFX 5200 cards all have nvidia's own built-in tv chip Also I haven't seen any geforce Ti PCI cards which are more likely to have the conexant chip. They're all AGP. I don't need much performance for my application (mini-itx car computer), but the card HAS to be PCI and have a CX25871 chip. This is the only chip series according to http://www.tvtool.info that has support for wide screen signaling (WSS) to automatically put my display in 16:9 mode.
Can anyone suggest a card that would meet my needs?? I guess if I can't find one I'll have to consider another mobo with AGP, but I'd really like to be able to use the EPIA because almost everybody around here has had great success with this little jewel.
I think you're going to have to look for a TNT2 pci to get what you're looking for. Alternatively, people have had good luck with ATI cards as well.
Yes, I thought about a TNT2. It would have enough power for sure, but did they make the TNT2 after the year 2000? The CX25871 chip came out in 2000 and seems like it didn't get popular till around 01/02. I'm also pretty sure that no ATI card has the Conexant chip or WSS support. I'd love it if someone could prove me wrong I'll have to look into the TNT2 a bit more. Thanks for the reply wylie-c
