Nice, well for visualizations in winamp, playing the odd game, it's going to be sweet when its working ( we can figure this out together)
But for dvd, stop! I tried that before and it's always lacking, because the dvd screen never seems centered correctly, or at least not as good as a standalone unit.
So I did some searching about two months after I purchased my first computer 4-5 years ago, and to go with my at the time 6x Pioneer slot load dvd player, I complimented it with the other industry best for computer dvd.
Here's what im talking about
Seriously, for dvd watching, if Your serious about having the best of the best, go there. I purchased the hollywood plus and later bought the remote that controls it (it plays dvds and vcds etc really nicely) and have not regretted it since
It also blows away any stand alone unit because you can use the pc dvd features as well , and get as good or better performance for visuals
The only thing is, for digital sound, only an sp/dif rca is available, and for picture, rca and s-video are only available (that means no fibre optic sound output, and no composite video out)
But for now, I don't miss it because I'm also saving money
Try one out
I wish I could show you what I mean
