TV-out support ANYWHERE?

When booting with only the TV connected to the ch7312-based SDVO card,
the boot messages do appear on the TV, and I can enter the BIOS and
do stuff - but everything is black & white. 

(Which does not matter for the BIOS settings, but it definitely does,
when I want to play back movies.)

This is with the integrated 965G chipset of my motherboard.

TV-Out works well for some Intel chipsets. I have a AOpen i915GMm-HFS
which has integrated s-video output, and it works fine with my PAL
TV. I can even enter BIOS using the TV. I guess you already have a
mainboard, but if anyone else is reading this thread, this is a
solution that works.  Note however that there is no hardware
accelerated IDCT, so HD playback is not possible. For info on
the card, see:
