Question video card question

Hi, I got a old PC given to me, it has what I think is a SiS 3D pro PCI video card. The card has some jumpers on it but I can't find any info on this card as to what the jumpers are for. It looks like it might have a output for TV and a jack that kinda looks like mouse or keyboard jack but is shaped a little different. Any one know anything about this card? I would like to try it in my PC but not till I know what the jumpers do so I don't wreck something by not knowing what I am doing. Or is this card a really old thing not worth the trouble. I can't find much info on the card anywhere about the jumpers or a year it was made. The jumpers are marked JP2 and there are 2 rows of 5 pins, the middle pins of the row are connected to each other now. I have a old joytech apollo 7400 card in it now for comparison. EDIT, Is this a SiS card or is SiS the make of the chips on the card? I can't find any other name or model numbers or anything on it. Tom

Hi, I found a driver for the card and tried it. it works OK but tests pretty low on performance test. I messed up, I have a Aopen PA50 video card in now. My apollo 7400 would freeze up on the 3D test. Tom

My question was what the plugins are for and what the jumpers do. Is this a card for web TV?
