Coax means it must carry audio as well as video. I'm not aware of a  
video card that does this. I'm not sure that I would want it to since  
coax is such poor quality when compared to svideo, component, DVI,  
VGA, and even composite. If you're looking for SCART, try searching  
the list. I know it's been mentioned many times in the past but I  
skip over those messages since I just use DVI.
