So why try make out that you looked around for open-source supported
S-Video out (which i believe the s-video on radeon is, by gatos), but
couldnt find any, when you didnt?

It's obvious you dont do ebay, cause that isnt how it works.

How you pay a seller on ebay is between you and them, ebay's paypal
tie-in being one way. You can still paypal (if seller accepts)
without using the ebay-tie-in. I usually buy from german dealers and
most of them want bank-transfers, which i do buy ringing AIB
24hour-online, giving them the IBAN #, etc.. details and hey presto
~5 working days later the germans have their money.
I wouldnt dream of buying anything without checking ebay first ;)
