    I saw someone on here mention it was possible to have output to video or tv
    when playing a file on Win Media Player. How is this done?

    any graphic card with tv out will let you do this!

    just connect a vcr and put WMP in full screen mode and away you go

    Nope, nothing coming out. The only time I find I get out to VCR or TV is in
    Tape Out mode in Pinnacle Studio Plus. Using a DC-10 card.

    On the ATI cards, there's a "theater mode" option that needs to be
    ticked for it to work. I still use WMP 6.4.

    Many consumer video cards have a composite or S-Video output that can
    be set up to mirror the on-screen display.

    However I don't recommend these for DV or MPEG-2 usage, since they
    aren't as suitable for high-quality video as a true DV (FireWire)
    output or a hardware DVD player. (for one thing, there is no frame- or
    field- synchronization between the VGA display and the video output,
    and the VGA display is usually resampled as well)

    You can't do it on a DC10 card. It will only output video which it has
    captured itself, using its onboard codec.
