I have this one in my current P4 2.4 machine:


fanless nVidia 6200 based, came with component video output.  It works
great on my Samsung HDTV in 480p mode.  1080i mode works, but I am
having a problem with Xv.  With X in 1080i mode watching something in
mplayer or mythtv X goes to ~100% CPU and I have to ssh and kill the X
server.  See this thread at nVidia forums:


Still haven't been able to spend any time getting my 667T frontend
finished.  I did get the 480p modes working, but haven't been able to
make time to work on the 1080i modes.
