Also which preset do I have to choose for Canon 5D project?
There is no preset right now for the Canon 5D but CS5 is going to have one.
If you watch the DaveTech video showing the new Mecury Playback Engine he shows having presets for the Canon.
Im not sure what the work around is now.
But at least new things are coming.
Maybe someone else has an idea.
How can I do it now without buying another third party video editing card?
What is the cheapest and easiest solution please?
The cheapest way is free: firewire cable to camera or deck, analog cable to TV.
Thank you for your answer, I did try that, I connected the camera t othe computer and from analog to my TV, but I get blck screen on the TV! How do I set up the Premiere CS4 to output to my camera?

In Playback settings enable "Use external device".
Thank you, it worked great. However what is the next choice, is htere s cheaper card to conect the computer directly to the TV?
Personnally I use a deck, but that is pretty expensive, an alternative is a cheap DV camera with firewire in or maybe even more affordable (but I never tried it for this purpose, so I may be wrong) is to use a Grass Valley/Canopus ADVC-110 which also allows you to convert analog material to DV before capturing. Have a look at it, maybe that is what you need.
You do have Premiere 4, if you have a second output on your graphics card you can output high definiton to that port and by using a 1920x1200 monitor you can enable Premiere to display HD on that monitor.
Thank you guys, you have been great.
