Good Morning ALL,
I have just purchased an new 57" HDTV with 1080p resolution. I plan on installing Ubuntu and Linuxmce onto a spare machine and set it up with my TV. What is the best HD TV Tuner card for linux that will give me the best picture. Also will my DVD be upconverted when I play them? I am no an expert so I am not sure if that is even needed if I set my resolution to 1920 × 1080 which is 1080p. I ask only because I have heard you need an upconverting DVD player to get the best picture on a 1080p TV. Any and all suggestions are welcomed and extremely appreciated. This system I will be installing to is an AMD XP2500+ 2Gb of DDR 400 Nvidia Soundstorm (X-FI if drivers ever come available) and Nvidia 7800G2 256MB.
