Looking for recommendations for a cheap card to go into a spare XP machine, will be used for watching movies on the TV so TV out needed+ HDTV out and streaming other media Photo's, music etc if possible :help:

looking at the Asus EN9600GSO at Ascent here (http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=377612) budget is under $150 Any other suggestions gratefully accepted this will not be used for gaming so please don't quote gaming cards :thanks

First thing is, are you sure the mobo has PCI-E on it?

what kind of connections does the TV have? Just RCA, or S-Video / and maybe HDMI as well? What do you want to do with music? Just play cd'/dvds through to the TV?

This TV only has RCA and S-video but looking for a new one soon which hopefully will be HDMI, music movies from disc and from my server over my wired network (whole house is wired) might eventually look at putting a tuner card in but not sure as can't get freeview UHF in Nelson

I have just taken my bog standard Acer Aspire Video card and TV card out so I could run a Radeon 5770 to play games. I don't need the TV functionality.
You can make me an offer, if you like.
TV Card is - WinTV (Hauppauge 2006) HVR-1110; 67559LF;Rev B4B4; DVB-T; Multi-PAL
Video Card - ATI Radeon 2400PRO 128MB DDR2 HM, V/D/VO
Board rev 0.1
ASIC P/N: 215LKCAKA13FG
BIOS: SAB2400.101
Memory: Hynix HY5PS561621A, FP -2.5
Cooling: Fansink

(Mods - hope I'm allowed to do that, apologies if I have just broken rules.)
These parts came out of an Acer Aspire M3100 which is no longer bog standard.
Cheers
