I have a 9800 Pro and I use the DVI out to my DLP HDTV set. I could not get
beyond 720X480 until I used Rage 3D tweek and Power strip, I don't know
which one actually worked, but I finally got it to output 1080i on the DVI
connector, and it looks great. I use Zoom player and FFDshow to up convert
DVD playback to 1080i and noise reduce and sharpen the output and it looks
great, very close to HDTV quality. See http://www.avsforum.com/ for more
You can only get SDTV from the S-video connector. I know some use the VGA
to component adapter that you can get from ATI and it has a switch to set
the output to 480p or 720p or 1080i, so if you cannot get the DVI to work
then analog RGB component should work. if you TV set uses tubes for the
display, then the analog component is just fine.
