Well I had a pretty nice 2007 style Home theater PC set up hooked to a 35" GE tube, S-video input only.

I have a decent receiver a Marantz SR5002. But there is one important feater it lacks - S-video input to HDMI out.

Well this new computer with a higher end HD6850 video card just won't connect to my TV.

I've tried the $5 VGA to S-video dongles and they don't work. Looks like I would have to buy a $100 converter and no gaurantees my video card driver would even recognize it..

I just bought my wife a 42" LCD for $350, should have bought two.

I hate to throw away this nice 35" tube, but it seems the only option that makes sense.

Bad thing is I the LCD I replace it with will burn out long before this old CRT would. And heck there isn't even any electric bill savings with flat screens.
