Different revision of the GF4 MX 440 use(d) different TV encoder chips
for their TV-out. Depending on who you ask, some are great and some
My original LeadTek GF4 MX 420 used an NV17 encoder chip, which was
probably about as good as I could have wanted without going to a
PVR-350 or DVI/component.
My new(er) on-board (Chaintech 7NIF2) GF4 MX 440 uses an NV18 encoder,
which IMHO really sucks.
Just my $.02.
