[mythtv-users] Video card suggestions

My MythTV box is currently running with an old Voodoo 4500 I had laying
around. Since I didn't have a card with a tv-out interface, I used a
VGA-to-composite converter I picked up on the cheap. It gets the job done,
but tends to cause a slightly fuzzy picture and occassionally gets out of

Now I want to "upgrade" and get a card with tv-out and am looking for
suggestions. I don't want to spend $200 on the latest ATI or nVidia with
17 gigs of ram or something silly. But I still want something reliable.

Anyone want to share their experience with reasonably priced video cards?
I'm looking for something with a composite interface. Will any of them
work for console (framebuffer) output, or only with X?

Thanks in advance,
