Yes. But manufacturers save on hardware design for their TV-outs.
Today's Nvidia and ATI cards may be great graphics cards, but their
TV-outs still suck after all those years of development.

And fully digital TV without any signal degradation maybe just around
the corner, but it will still be just around the corner for a few years
to come.

I'm glad that I have my DVB-C full-featured card with a TV-out that
offers the quality of a stand-alone DVD player.
