Well, I just got my G400 tv-out working thanks to Colin Panisset's excellent 
instructions.  I don't have a TV in my computer room to test it on, so I ran 
the TV-out from my linux box into a capture card in my windows box.  This 
setup allowed me to capture a screenshot (3.8MB):


If anyone can do something similar with their TV out cards or scan converters, 
I'd like to see results for comparison as well.
