I am wonder what everyone's setup is to ouput to HDTV capable TV? I have ordered the new hdtv3000 card and also bought a nvidia card nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128MB DDR 8X AGP w/ TV Out. It has a S-video out connection to go to the TV? So will this work? I want to run the mythtv and basically build a Linux PVR to my HDTV capable tv.

You won't get HDTV quality using S-VIDEO output. What you need is a TV with a DVI or VGA input. It will look OK in most cases, but not the best. You'll have to play with aspect ratio to make it look right for 16:9 or 4:3 programming.

To get good HDTV quality, usually the input are component, VGA, DVI or firewire. It's limited to that, but the old RF, S-video and RCA input are or compared to about 480i.
