[mythtv-users] Confused about video card

I'm in the lucky possition to be able to test 2 different graphic cards 
in my system. I'm living in the Netherlands (PAL) and using 0.18.1 release.

The two cards are a ATI Radeon RX9550 and a NVidia FX5200 both from MSI. 
I'm using the fglrx driver for the ATI and the nvidia driver for the... 
ehh nvidia ... card.

I've found that the Ati card has quite a better quality output on my 
Television (SVIDEO) than the NVidia card. On the other side, BOB isn't 
working (a static 'screendump' flickering with the life stream) and i'm 
unable to do anything with overscan and/or shifting the output to center 
on my TV. Those functions are working on the nvidia card, but the 
quality is like vhs video quality.

After searching the mailinglists / web, it seems that the nvidia card 
should be better, so i've got the feeling i'm doing something wrong 
overhere. Is that true and can you give some hints?

Met vriendelijke groet,

Micha Kersloot
