Ok, the use case is me using the card on a regular TV with s-video or  
rgb input, then I'd like to turn on the projector that has HDMI input.

 From my understanding I'd just change the output mode from 576p to  
something higher, thus turning off SDTV output, and enabling HDMI?

How does the card work with plain SDTV interlaced output? Does it do  
field perfect 50Hz output like an old style FF card? Would you rather  
recommend a setup with both a FF card and an eHD card in the same  
computer for such a usage scenario?
