Hhmm.  I'm not sure we're quite there yet.

There's no daisy chaining involved.  I can't even remember a TV out on
the Nova-t card.  If there is one then I think it's just a feed
through of the input single - to allow you to feed the input into a
second card.

No, the signal gets from your NOVA-t card to the graphics card via
your hard disk.

Step 1  Nova-T card creates a file on your hard disk.

Step 2  Play file using MythTV or other media playing software.

As regards choice of graphics card -  Most people seem to be using
nVidia cards which, AFAIK all have S-Video outputs on them.  I'm using
a MX440 which is fanless (quieter),  5200s also seem popular.  If you
don't want to go gaming then you don't need a particularly recent card

Hope this helps.
