Hello experts !

I need to make this situation: on fisrt monitor operator works in my software (video player). Video player have to show video in TV by using TV out (Composite or S-video).

As you know ATI and Matrox have some video cards with two monitor outputs. Such video cards have also TV out. So the question is how to control TV output ? For me best way will be that video card driver's has DirectShow filter. Then I can render video files, decode them and send to DirectShow filer that will show video.

Are someone have experience with this ? What video card to use ? Currently I have ATI Radeon 9000 Pro, Matrox G450 and Matrox G550. However ATI Radeon 9000 Pro is much powerful that G450/G550 and I prefer to you it.
