Hi everyone,

I've been following todays HDTV Recommendations thread with great 
interest.  I too am in the early stages of building a MythTV system to feed 
my HD-ready TV.  The only difference is that I want to use the DVI input on 
my TV instead of component video and I was wondering if anyone has a 
recommendation for a video card that would allow me to set up a digital 
connection with a DVI-I to DVI-D cable.  I will be capturing OTA HDTV with 
a HD-2000 or HD-3000.

My TV is a Sony KP-57WV700 with what looks like a DVI-D input (labelled 

 From my research it sounds like an NVIDIA based card would be my best 
bet... but which one?

While I've got you... anyone have a recommendation for a stable sound 
card?  I'm looking for something that will handle 5.1 sound with SPDIF 
(optical) output.  My current MythTV system is based on a Pundit and the 
onboard SPDIF is flakey at best.  I just want something reliable.
