It might be interesting to see the results if one of these cables [1]  
was connected to an RGB SCART socket, however. One might use one of

SCART is very common here in the UK, and also throughout continental  
Europe, so one could try this on someone else's telly first.

Some ATi cards do - the X800 All-In-Wonder is one that springs to  
mind, but I think also some other their other cards without tuners  
also have "HDTV" connections.
