DVI to Video Adapter

The ATI Radeon X1900 XT and ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics cards support an optional DVI to S-video/composite adapter that provides S-video and composite output to a PAL or NTSC video monitor or VCR. When a display is connected by way of the video adapter, the computer detects the type of adapter and enables the composite and S-video outputs. The settings for the resolutions and standards (NTSC or PAL) are then selectable in the Display pane in System Preferences.
