instead of buying a whole new video card with svideo. I just wanted to know if the cube had this capability, i want to turn mine into a media center as cheap as possible.

Thanks

There are card that will work, but they aren't cheap. They aren't THAT expensive, either, but stock they're around $110 low end, as far as I've been able to find. Your other option is to either flash a PC card or buy a flashed one from someone who does that; there are a couple places to find more info on that, strangedogs (http://strangedogs.proboards40.com/)' and cubeowner (http://www.cubeowner.com/forums/)'s forums are both good sources of info and people.

But yeah, that converter should work, I've never tried one of them before but at $.99 it's worth a shot. Whatever you choose, keep that baby running! Cubes are awesome...
