Video display cards provide the graphical output for MythTV and modules (compared to video capture cards which provide input). A standard video card will output all display to a VGA port to display on a standard computer monitor. Most MythTV users are looking to have this display outputted to a television or other display device. This can be accomplished by either using a card that has integrated TV-out capabilities or using a VGA to NTSC/PAL (television) converter.
