This probably isn't the group for this, as I'm running XV and VDR really 
shines with FF DVB cards.

Looks like there's very few options for s-video TV-OUT XV support in Linux.

I've searched the Matrox, Savage and NVIDIA - nothing has particularly good 
support for accelerated s-video.  I am running another VDR machine with an 
S3 Unichrome 2D/3D chipset and s-video - works really well!

This new VDR box is low-rise though, so I need a small card....


any thoughts?
