Crescendo Systems Transcoder (external version) ....
http://www.crescendo-systems.com/transcoder.html ... tho' just after I
bought it, they came out with a PCI version (only uses PCI for power)
... and it is $10 cheaper than the one i got... darn! :p
it comes highly recommended by avsforum.com (Crescendo Systems worked
closely with users on avsforum when developing it) ...
here's the blurb from the website:
* High-Bandwidth component output and optional VGA pass-through
* Color conversion for 480p and 720p/1080i
* Accepts all known resolutions
* Supports fixed width bi-level and fixed width tri-level sync
* Ideal for HTPC to TV or projector
The Crescendo-Systems TCP2200 is the addition to the transcoder line
developed in the AVSForum. On top of the functionality present in the
TC2000, the new TCP2200 adds support for tri-level sync and a fixed
width bi-level sync. The PCI interface only draws power from the
computer and therefore requires no drivers or additional software. The
TCP2200 is a transcoder and the VGA connector is an input not an output.
The TCP2200 is one of the few transcoders that has a separate color
conversion for 480p and 720p/1080i in order to provide optimum color
fidelity. Although the required conversions are nearly identical, the
difference cannot be ignored when optimum quality is pursued.
