This is probably a really stupid question but if I put a dvd rom drive into my computer can I watch dvds through the tv out on my graphics card (gf4 mx 440).
Thank You

Yes to both.

I've played many DVD's out of my PC into my TV/VCR.. You can record what you see on your screen so I've recorded a few Music Videos from the TV-Out on my GF4 card. Im assuming it would be identical for DVD's because its being displayed in exactly the same way.

I've also played DVD's from my X-Box, and Video's from my VCR on my PC using my TV-Tuner/Capture card. Works a treat!

See pricespy.co.nz for a bargain on a capture card in your area. I have a PixelView Pro TV/FM card ATM and its brilliant!
