    Why do mac video cards suck?
    I have a new powermac g5 single 1.8 and have been trying to find an agp video card with svideo out. They do not exist other than the 64mb radeon 8500. What gives? Is there a better way to watch video on your tv for macs or something?

    The Apple DVI to Video Adapter was designed specifically to allow Mac mini and Power Mac G5 systems users to connect from the DVI port to S-video or Composite video devices such as TVs, VCRs, or overhead projectors with S-Video or RCA (Composite) connectors. The Apple DVI to Video Adapter is designed to work with the DVI port on the Mac mini and Power Mac G5 systems only.
    should work fine-- it goes right from DVI to s-video.

    Apple has such a small share of the market, not much money goes into developing video cards for Macs. It is much more lucrative to build video cards for PCs. That would explain the lack of options.
