Bug Hunt on the 6xxx Series Nvidia Cards... Nasty Bug for some discovered

@ 2005/04/19
Well, as the topic says... We went out to review the 6xxx series cards from Nvidia but were greeted with a couple nasty bugs that could affect a great deal of users who ever decide to move into the HTPC arena and connect their HTPC to a HDTV. Really a much needed read for anyone thinking of using some of these newer cards to possibly connect their HTPC to their HDTV.


Snippet:

Chaintech 6600GT and 6800 Video Cards Review and Bug Hunt

"For those who intended to use a 6800 series card in their HTPC may have found a ugliness that can not be denied. The bug occurs when trying to use a interlaced resolution out to your display via VGA or VGA to component (using a transcoder) and loading a Direct3D game or 3D accelerated GUI (such as Media Center Edition 2005). "

The problems don't end there however, another nasty interlace resolution issue comes up while gaming... resulting in a good sized performance hit. Read the story to find out if you are one of the possible people who will be affected.

Do i understand this article correct when i assume they mean the bug accurs when connecting a TV screen to the card's VGA or VGAtoDVI connection ?
