I have only used the TP770 DVD Enhanced Video
Adapter with the 770X. It offers Dolby 5.1 which
is wonderful if you have 5.1 speaker system. To
use 5.1, I had to use the built-in DVD playback
software, which is extremely clumsy in every other
respect. I did not find another software package
that would recognize the adapter.
The adapter also purports to allow you to use
another plug on the same adapter to input video to
your thinkpad. Unfortunately, it drops as many
frames as it captures, at least with the original
slowpoke hard drive.
