    I have an ATI x800 hooked up to my HDTV via DVI. I use this for my screen and for watching DVDs. If I were to watch a file that was HD say a show I downloaded. Will it output it in HD to the TV or do I need to do somthing else. I know in the catalyst control panel it has support for HDTV but it doesnt seem to offer much except for more resolutions.

    You play the DVDs on the computer?
    If so, then you should, or might, be able play the downloaded videos in the same player.

    All computer screens with at least 1280x1024 meet the highest standard for HDTV, and all video cards that can support that resolution can show an HDTV picture on any device (TV, LCD, CRT, etc.) The only catch will be whether the video feed you're watching can fill the whole screen without having to be stretched -- if if can, then it will be crystal clear on an HDTV -- if not, then it will be fuzzy.
