Hi Phil:


___I did not test the ATI Radeon 8500 directly but it was tested and it appears to have worked fine. Under Windows 2000/XP, some of the HW acceleration features are not enabled but PQ was not degraded because of it. Hopefully a DirectX 8.1a release will help in the performance category but nothing that most any low end and properly built > 500 MHz HTPC of today cannot handle.


___Good Luck

Wayne,


Thanks for the response! What about Win98SE?


Also, do you know if it will do custom resolutions with Powerstrip?


Finally, do you know if it will output reference levels? I tried a Radeon but it would not.


Oh, one more question. Could I extend the DVI cable up to my D-ILA? It's about 25'. I would think that keeping it digital all the way up to the projector would be the best.


My plans are to use WinDVD with it until the 'new sherriff is shipped, (I'm on the preorder list).


Thanks again,

Phil

I sent my 8500 to Andrew and he built in the support for it.


Unfortunately, I haven't had time to do too much with it so I can't answer your other questions.
