I bought a new iMac DVSE and enjoy the ability to watch DVD movies, BUT I really would like to connect it to a TV-set.
I would like to be able to watch my movies on a TV and also to grab video and TV to my mac.

Is there a solution for both?
Have anyone tried/bought the MyTV, TView Micro or i·TView?

The only thing I found so far is the Power Scan Converter from www.powerr.com. But I didn^t quite understand what I really need to connect the VGA to my TV. And I think it is a little pricy, too (around 200$). If you find a suitable solution let me know...

Well on iMac2day.com I found a list of peripherals (both cards and usb-devices).
I would like to see some reviews before buying any devices though...

I just purchased the Interview package by XLR8 and have so far been quite happy with its ability to import data from my video camera. I have a Rev A iMac but plan to purchase a DV any day. My reasoning is that it will convert my Hi8 into the digital stream required by iMovie. As far as the
topic here, I (not being a techie) hope there will soon be some software cable combination that will allow "video out" whether that be via VGA or Firewire so I can share my edited videos with family on VHS and also watch DVD movies on my TV (via the connected iMac). I was at my local
computer store and several customers were gathered around the guy discussing iMovie - one person, upon realizing he would need digital video with iMovie (aka a digital video camera) was very vocal about feeling deceived by Apple's commercials in the sense that he would be required to put out a lot more $$ to make his own edited movies. Oh well. That's why I bought Interview. Now all I need is video out.

Anyone tried to talk to Apple?
Shouldn't they know about solutions?
They really should have a place on there site where thirdparty products could be "displayed"

Well, well in our dreams I suppose.... ;-)
