You might still use a VGA card and get very good TV signal output. The matrox cards can do interlaced output with perfect field alignment. There might be some lip sync issues though, but the softdevice plugin gets better every day.

My experience with softdevice is that even recently its A/V sync is quite
poor. Xine is very good at syncing, but there's more lag when changing
channels etc due to buffering. I'm now using df_xine with a Matrox G450.

Matrox cards can do composite and s-vga (and scart rgb with an adapter) output.

You need an adaptor for S-Video and composite too, but you can buy one
ready made from Matrox. It's not outrageously expensive, worth the money
IMO to avoid some very fiddly soldering. Unfortunately they don't seem
to sell one for RGB

Thanks both, for the suggestion.

I'd prefer to use the PVR 350 due to the low host CPU requirement and it seems like a natural replacement for the FF cards - IR, MPEG decoder and OSD all in hardware and at a reasonable price.
