    What do you guys think is the best TV out card for the Mac (DP 867 MDD) with a decent price?

    I want to preview FCP projects, but dont want to spend too much.. any ideas?

    Thanks :D

    Also, I think I know the answer, but is there any way to make PC tv out cards work on a Powermac???

    I don't know the "best" -- however... the ATI Radeon PCI 7000 is relatively cheap and offers S-Video Out.

    http://mirror.ati.com/products/mac/radeon7000me/index.html

    It's a PCI Video Card and allows you to drive a second monitor. I don't know how well it would do if you didn't want to drive a second monitor on it... ie if you just wanted to do video out.

    $119.95 at MicroWarehouse

    I have the same card with my MDD..... I only use it as a video out. So far no problems. It works great!
