Im stressing over here trying to get my ATI HDTV dongle to work with my i8600, i tired the driver hack but under the display tabs where YPrPb sould be listed there are only the default outputs. The dongle came with ATI drivers, but because its on a dell laptop they will not install, and the driver hack by Patje doesnt work with those drivers. Anyone know a work-around for this? or Dell can you include support for this in the next driver release, its kinda sad when you cant use your own computer the way you want to.
Thanks for any input,

I have a sony kv-hz34m90 just delivered - there is caution in manual about pc card output to hdtv vprpb terminals - not about non-sony products, rather signal levels & compatibility with internal circuits
there is no single signals standard at this time & circuit/phosphor damage is possible
sony tech advised that it is possible but should be sony recognized pc video card to preserve service contract -- also, toshiba gave me same info re: newest hdtv 34 model -- progressive scan can be involved w/multiple phosphor hits occuring burning phosphor

I have the 8600 with wuxga and ati9600. Wanted to use my computer to record High Def content to the Hard Drive.
Check out the following link to record HD content. I know of no other way to do this but if you do please let me know. However, does this mean once we have HD content on the 8600 we cannot output it in HD to a TV? Does this also mean that the HD output will look no better than a dvd played through the laptop and into the TV. What is this HDTV adapter you are speaking of? Can I buy this item from dell? I just got the one with svideo out/composite out/and digital coaxial out.
I was looking for a cheap solution to record TV shows and HD without having to buy massive amounts of hardware and put to use what I already have. What do you recommend?

Perhaps I wasn't too clear on what I meant 😛
Here youcan see the device I am refering to, its a tv-out adapter.
Here is the menu I was refering to.
However that page doesnt state that it works with the Mobility 9600, but I was told it will with any 9600 card, and with the correct drivers installed.
Which is exactly my problem, I cannot install the drivers because of the dell hardware configuration. I can only use the dell certified 9600 drivers, which do not support the YPrPb output.
