I'm in the course of converting my home cinema equipment from S-Video 
(Y/C) to YUV connection.

Currently I use vdr with a full-featured card and s-video output through 
the j2 connector. What is the "recommended" way to move vdr to YUV 
output, as the FF cards are not capable of doing so? I don't want to 
shell out to much money, so RGB->YUV converters are probably out of the 

Would a cheap (PCI) ATI (Radeon 8500/9x00) card with an YUV adapter be 
suitable, and what picture quality is achievable through this setup? Are 
there any other options? The PC is a 1.3GHz celeron MediaPortal, so I 
can't spare to many CPU cycles on either X or software mpeg decoding.
