As we may know there was and still is a demand to connect consoles to PC LCD monitor easily but there are no ways to do that on the fly with radeons specifically , either you need a really choppy and expensive VGA box , hard-to-get adapters (almost impossible to get at retail in many countries) , while an ability to connect input like VIVO is present on ATI TV Cards, by the way it works , it has lag so that's out, And the TV-card LCDs are newer and still expensive , plus you also need to buy component cables , so either way it goes you must spent like some 50$ to get connected , not to mention you need a female stereo RCA - to - female 3.5 mm audio jack (which is specifically designed to work with the set for the consoles) , for the audio , now Logitech 5.1 x-540 sorround set has this included but not everybody can get this easily. Sometimes it's not about the costs , but the "getting-a-hold-of" , which in my case , I don't buy stuff with credit card (least popular in my country) it's near to impossible to get some stuff , and I don't want to buy anothey LCD just for the Wii. Also consider this , that I wanted to hook up a console for YEARS now , and still no success. The whole idea of a TV tuner card is out , many people have radeons and consoles, and I don't even know if a TV card and Radeon would work together , not to mention you would probably need to switch the hardware. AMD responded very well(customer support) although it's not clear if they intent to do any support for radeons: All we need is to prove people are interested , and if you know someone , friend , link em here , there are always times when people ask for support but now we just need to do , since they seem to be prepared for it , so catalyst crew can do something it's in the possibility , but of course they won't do something if nobody's interested. The official forums are mainly issue/problems wise , not a lot of them spot the idea or have problems with it's radeons. What I did to try to connect my wii to the PC monitor , it was a year ago , i have researched al about it , so i got into it , and saw some DIY workaround of people with skills made a homemade adapter and such , so I got cutting some wires , and different waays , and I basically ruined my old GCN AV cables and one VGA cable , i was just desperate i wanted to work so badly. SO i don't make a post and ask about it , I SPENT 3 DAYS trying to figure it out and it won't work without stuff I already mentioned , I came across a thing called VIVO , ... that's when I thought up of this idea. So my idea was like for a year , and now I finally posted. The background of it is: -That if you have a RADEON , why would you need to buy a separate card for that -ATI has been using tech like these and has experience -Big demand , but never brought up . it's never reported in the media. So many threads and sites around the web- I am just wondering if there is a possibilty to make the S-Video port somehow intake via driver , maybe all this is is a driver feature that it's locked on radeons , it's really al lot of speculation since the idea of "connecting a console to GPU" is not so popular within the industry. And this is the ATI Forum thread http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=260&threadid=130848&enterthread=y Also please answer the poll. Thanks EDIT: AMD confirmed this idea/feature needs hardware , which means this can be only be possible for future HD6 (which comes second half 2010) , if they choose to actually do it. Time will tell. And I will make my best to support this. Clearing up a bit: AVIVO is a software movie enhancment feature in catalyst VIVO is the hardware video input that was in radeons but moved to TVcards.
