a good tv tuner card and graphics card match
Hello all,

It's been a while since I wrote this group. Anyway, I"m thinking of building my own computer and in it I'd like to install a TV tuner card and a high end graphics card. I would prefer to use ATI"s All In Wonder 9700 Radeon but I've been reading about driver issues with these cards. MSI has a nice Nvidia card, the MSI G4Ti4400-VTD, and separate TV tuner card, but right now the graphics card can't be found anywhere for sale. Any one in this group have opinions on these or other options? Any input would be appreciated.

yeah, avoid the all in wonder, as it uses a bizarre tv decoding chip, rather than the brooktree 878 or 848 chip that 99.9% of other cards use. just pick any decent standalone graphics card e.g Haupage WinTVGO, or a cheap clone and you should be fine. a few of teh erlly cheap 878 cards are buggy, but that's the same for any cheap crap hardware...

mind you, all in wonders do still work with the gatos driver, but it's not very well supported in apps.
