I didn't think the nVidia cards had a low enough dotclock to output at
TV frequencies?  I'm using an Radeon 9200 to do the same (and have to
force the driver to ignore the reported dotclock to get that working)
with the open-source ATI drivers - no XvMC yet unfortunately though.  As
you say, the results are superb and I even get full res widescreen :)
