I was aware of the VGA to NTSC converters, but most VGA cards can
generate NTSC signals, its just that the drivers have problems setting
it up correctly. One of the best video cards for this task is the
Matrox brand of cards. They dont really have a VGA out port, just a
splitter that takes the VGA signal and converts it to NTSC. Remember,
the VGA card has R, G, B, VS, and HS. To convert, you just need R, G,
B, and CS and that is pretty easy. The problem comes with the
scanrates and resolution. But, if you have good video drivers and a
chipset that supports this, this is not a problem.
Take a look at the following link for more info on this:
As for the *, apparently it is possible as I just talked to Dave
& Iann and they both confirmed that it is possible. The graphics
databook also mentions this. I will testing this out in the next
couple of weeks and posting the results on my webpage (with pictures)
for everyone to see. BTW, you can also genlock two graphics trams as
well. Way too cool (stereo anyone, hehehe)..
