I eventually found that there are both nvidia and ati cards with component out. There's an abit x600-pro-hdtv that has component out built right on the card ( takes two slots ). There are a bunch of nvidia 6600 cards that have a dongle that converts s-video to component.

All the advice I got here and on the mythtv forum was to use nvidia because of the drivers. So I got a 6600 for $120 from newegg.

I'm a little concerned about the s-video -> component dongle. Does s-video really carry all the info that component cables do?

I have one of those cards too. I also have a radeon w/ the dvi->component (which I was never able to make work w/ linux). If you look on the nvidia the s-video isn't really s-video, it has some extra pins (the converter actuaaly has an s-video plug)
