Take a look at a Lifeview FlyVideo line, specifically the 2100 and 3100:


I've got the 3100 now but kinda wish I'd gotten the 2100 since it has the 
S-Video input and I'll be doing the audio via the sound card anyways. 
There are drivers for it on bytesex. They're not 1.0 drivers, but they 
seem to work well enough.

Granted, I don't have a fully working myth system yet, but I think that's 
more due to lack of time than anything else :-)

Let he who is without clue kiss my ass
