pukar, your answer is yes. I have an ATI All-In-Wonder capture/tuner card that I run the S-Video out from my Home Theater receiver into and I get a very nice picture on my computer monitor. If you don't have a HT receiver you can run the extra composite output into your ATI.

As Mark stated, if you can, DON'T use the coax output to watch on your TV, that is the worst PQ you can get from the 501.

All the connections on your 501 are "hot" which means you can view them all at the same time. So you could potentially view the same signal on 4 different displays at the same time using:

1) S-Video out
2) Composite Out #1
3) Composite Out #2
4) RF
