I actually picked up a RCA VHDC300 off of eBay recently for a pretty
cheap price. I got it setup last night and the picture quality is much
better on my HDTV than before with just svideo. I still have to do
some tweaking to compensate for a slight horizontal overscan, but I've
been pretty happy with it so far.
Before purchasing, I tried to find information online about its use in
this application (using it for computer applications), and wasn't able
to find too much about it. I did see a couple posts on a forum about
how it may only work well with 540p/1080i modelines, but I have not
yet tested this statement.
