[mythtv-users] Best approach for TV output (composite/s-video)?

If I go the route of a scanline converter, what would the list suggest?
I've seen some people talk about the sub-$100 ones made by Avermedia, but
from what I remember, those comments are generally not complimentary.
Could someone correct me if I'm wrong, or suggest an alternative?

What this boils down to is that given a high-quality file to play back, I
would like the output from my Myth box to appear to be the same quality as
watching cable on my TV (a 7-year-old 32" Sony Trinitron).

             If you're going to buy a new vid card for the application, you
want to consider a scanline converter.  It'll be the easiest way to get a
vid card interfacing with a TV without having driver, Xf86config file
woes, crappy quality, etc.  I'm sure the quality is to some degree what you
for, but I'd think that for $50-100 you could get a decent one?  I'm a big
believer that the *less* "flicker reduction filtering" it has, the better
is... TV's flicker... get over it!  :)
