I've got the ATI All-In-Wonder 32mb DDR. I 'feed' it my regular cable (not digital). I can also hook up an input device through an s-video or composite (RCA) jacks. Just go to the website of the card you're getting and see what it takes to get your signal to your tuner.

.....No either just plug an areial in or your analogue cable in it will be fine but you will need a fast pc to record tv programmes without dropping frames..but perfect for watching tv whilst surfing the net.

My ATI works really well... I'm happy with it. I've never tried hooking a tv up to it as a monitor, but then again, that's not why I bought it. As far as a video capture device, eh.

Stay away from ATI All In Wonder cards, they are poorly made products. As for TV Tuner cards buy a Hauppauge WinTV series card. These are the best quality and most compatible TV Tuner cards on the market. Required system specs are on their web site http://www.hauppauge.com .

ATI poorly made...

Just give it up they are not porly made the only reason we dont all have ati cards is bacause of (in the past)poor driver support,if they are so POOLRY why do thety sell in the bucket load.....read some reviews about their all in 1 cards will you.



They might not be the fastest cards in the world but they offer superior dvd playback and good quality tv capture.......i presume your trying to help but please provide a more open opinion remember some users still use these cards.
