    Don't you have a regular set-top DVD player?

  4. Then you need a video card in your computer that has
    composite video out (or the equivalent).

    These days, however, a standalone DVD player is likely
    cheaper than a new video card with NTSC/PAL output.

    Do you have a software DVD player (WinDVD or PowerDVD)?

  7. Those cards are little odd, I don't know if you can use it to play the
    output of a DVD player to the TV. It might only output video from the
    video editing software wince it's a MJPEG card.

    DC-10 shall _only_ export Mjpeg encoded AVI clips. So you shall need
    first to convert the DVD to that format. With something like mpeg2avi,
    any of the DVD backup programs, ...
