[mythtv-users] Nvidia DVI vs ATI

Ok so some hours spent testing various modelines via analogue and
digital has revealed that it is definitely not possible to get DVI-D
output at 1080i or 1080p from this card. I have found a not
unreasonably priced fanless 6800 from gigabyte. Its more than I would
have thought to spend on just a PVR but with a powerful card like this
I think UT2K4 would look excellent on my TV so its not out of the
realms of justification.

However can anybody with any certainty say that this fault/issue is
due to the TMDS on the card and not the Nvidia driver.

The "nv" xfree86/xorg driver doesn't seem to switch in digital output
on my card at all so confirming card Vs driver is somewhat difficult.

If the driver is capable then I may seriously consider the 6800 as an
option. If not then I'll have to look elsewhere.
