    i have a 9500 pro and it's great but i want a tv in so i can record tv shows. i also want to be able to play videos from my comp on the tv. i know the all in wonder will do it but will the tv wonder do both and are there other cards out there that will do it too?

    your video card also has vivo... ie video IN video OUT...

    this means you can display images from your tv on your monitor and from your computer onto your tv screen...

    if you want a tv IN you can buy a small tv wonder card and you can watch tv on your monitor as well as record programs @ high quality... the all in wonder will do both as well but you have a good video card so there is little need for you to try to get an AIW card..

    you need a s video cable to go from the tv to the computer, when i got my 9500 pro i got a rca to s video converter, but you can get a s video cable from radioshack or best buy.

    will i get the audio out too or do i need a sound card to work that? if i get the tv wonder can i avoid all this by just using the coaxil cable or is that just a one way line? i want to avoid a cable mess because my tv is two rooms away and i will need about 50ft of cable.

    im pretty sure your gonna need a sperate cable to get sound from the tv out on your 9500 but not sure youll get sound from a all-in-wonder tho. youll have to wait for sazar to answer that.

    the s-video cable is like rca all in one.. ie you get video/audio together...

    for a long distance like that I dunno how much the cable will cost...

    alternatively you can get video feed and use your computer for audio output...

    NO NO NO, S-VIDEO does NOT carry audio, just video. S-VIDEO offers better picture quality becasue it has 3 video wires plus 1 common, if you want to use S-VIDEO you still need to run an audio feed.

    Sorry to be so rude, but this is had to be corrected.

    I should have been more specific :)

    s-video/audio :)

    cables run for around 10 bucks and under and that is what I use...

    sry for confusion.. I've had it so long I didnt even think...
