I was wondering about the apple tv system or whatever it was called. What slot does it plug into? & wouldn't it not look that good in thousands or 256 colors since that was standard then? The info on Apple's site is a little unspecific, thanks!

I used to have one of them there gizmos. If it's the same thing that I'm thinking of, it doesn't plug into any slot. In my old 5200 it attached via a ribbon cable.

As for the technical details of the device and how it works, I cannot and will not help you. It's just something that I know nothing about and I have no interest in learning anything about it.

I can tell you however, that it does work reasonably well. The picture quality was good on a 5200. I used my old 5200 pretty much exclusively as a television set until it gave up the ghost. I thought of it as an old TV set that took two or three minutes (The time it took to boot) to warm up.

Well I found that the apple tv/video system is 2 cards that you install in the computer... but I haven't found what slots they're supposed to be in... would the LC PDS slot be one of them possibly? thanks again!

It's a dedicated slot and the cards only work in certain Power Mac/Performas, including 5200, 5300, 5400, 5500, 6200, 6300, 6400, 6500 and the Quadra/LC/Performa 630 and I believe also the LC/Performa 580.

The cable tuner doesn't have a slot at all - a dedicated cable plugs into it from the motherboard.

That is a good use for a 6200.
