I use a AiTech Web Cable Plus.  It is a VGA --> S-video converter.  I
got it for around $70 from www.buy.com a year ago or so.  Just plug it
in and it works. The quality is fine.  It's not perfect; I can tell a
slight differance between it and the TV's native tunner (I have a new
32" Toshiba), but after watching it for a while, you don't notice. I
think some of the jerkyness of the news ticker is due to this thing. 
But, I've been using it for over a year now and have never really been
motivated to get the S-video out on my motherboard working (which is
easy).   There were several other people on the list recommending this
one about a year ago.
