i've finally seen a price for this thing, although i've never seen it anywhere. i'm sure there's been threads about this, but i just want to be sure that i have it right...

best showable res is 800x600 and even then it looks so-so?

please lemme know if you know 8)

Hi Scotty,

I had the MystiqueG200 with the built-in TV out ...

Using the Y/C (S-VHS / Hi8) connector gave me the best picture I've ever seen from a computer. Even the text below the icons was still readable !

Brilliant colors & contrast !

800x600 looks like best TV out resolution for Matrox MAVEN chip and software. 768x576 for PAL would be much better if they supported it...
