Does anyone know if the new ATI Radeon 5870/5850 cards still support composite or s-video output? For those of us with old/prehistoric TV's this is still important. I only read that there is VGA output via an adapter, but could not find any other information. Thanks!

you'll need a VGA to Video Converter to convert a VGA signal to Composite Video or S-Video.

Yes, that would be a solution. But I was hoping that composite support was just not explicitly mentioned in the card features and that it might be supported via a passive adapter. – user6941 Oct 15 '09 at 11:59
