Mp3 player with a BIG interface?

I am looking for an MP3 player that has a big interface so it will be viewable on a Television via my video cards tv out. Anyone know of one?

Thanks
Chris

Get XMMS and the kjofol plugin, and you can get one with a big interface or draw your own. kjofol is also for windows if that floats your boat.

WMP 9 works fine for me. It's kinda shitty if I'm using RCA out to my TV, but is perfectly clear when using S-Video. If you've got S-Video on your TV, anything will be fine at 800x600. 1024x768 might make things a little more difficult though

No svideo, hence the need for a big interface. I'll try the XMMS.

Ahhh, yeah that sucks. It'd work ok at 640x480, if you wanted to go that low. But anything higher resolution on the RCA hookups needs some big fonts

I never realized how much clearer S-Video was from RCA until I started my HECC project. Before, I had my DVD player going through S-Video to my TV, and then I'd take it to a friend, or neighbors, or family, and hook it up with RCA (so I didn't have to keep unhooking the S-Video cable from my TV which is just a pain in the ass to get back there), never really noticed a difference.
