    i picked up a tv card off ebay..it is the aitech wavewatcher tv pci card..it has 2 chips a aitech and phillips chip...support at aitech said the chipset was a zoran.......not the bx8xxx..that seem to be used by alot of the tv cards out there... i have my pc dual booted with windows xp and windows 98..under 98 the works fine with drivers i downloaded from there site..but under windows xp there beta drivers basically are useless..it only scaned 5 out of the 78 cables channels..and when it plays the image is split...the windows xp driver is a beta driver and they say on web site there will be no more future drivers for windows xp..ive found alot of third part drivers out there for card using the bx8xxx chipset but not for the zoran chipset,,anyone know of any third party support for this card?? anyone bought one of these cards off line and able to get it to work under windows xp??

    Per chance have you tried the XP cd for drivers. Do an add new hardware and manual install, find ATI on the list and go from there.
