    I have a ATI All in Wonder card w/ tv tuner. What are some software that works great with my card? (something like TVtime (for linux) or better!) Thanks! (exclude Dscaler if you're going to suggest it)

    ATI's MMC works best with the AIW since it's designed to work with the card... there an extensive amount of information for setting it up properly here, look to the left under caputuring with a ATI:

    I use Beyond TV. It sets itself up as a web server, so you can record TV shows and "broadcast" them to your home network. Check out www.snapstream.com - they have a 21-day free trial, and then you can purchase the program for $30 (I think...)


    Looks like their prices went up. $69.99 for BTV 4. $39.99 if you are upgrading from version 3.

    In what way? For capturing or watching ?

    Unlike most combo cards like the Nvidia VIVO cards the AIW utilizes the GPU for some of the functions such as video soap and mpeg encoding. If you use a different capture utility I'm pretty sure those features can't be utilized.
