1 out of 5 eggsFriends don't let friends buy ATI

Pros: Makes a good paperweight.

Cons: Doesn't work. Support at AMD is the pits. The catalyst software never did install properly. Now I'm stuck with the ATI unified driver. Uninstall it and it comes back like a bad rash. I've tried installing other drivers but the unified one is keeping the other driver from installing.

Using other software like beyond tv makes the whole system lock up with the only option to reboot.

Other Thoughts: Tech support is no help. I found a driver that other recommended coexist but after installing it, it can't start.

it's likely the unified driver that creeps back in. Uninstall it via device manager and in five minutes or so it's reinstalled.

4 out of 5 eggsWindows Vista Media Center user

Pros: Works wonderfully with Windows Vista Home Premium Media Center. My brother has had luck with Windows Media Center (XP) excellent picture when ran full screen. Hasn't erred once on my machine since I bought it.

Cons: Records interlaced in WMC. This is only an issue if you watch ATSC programs in Windows Media Player (in a window, not full screen) as Windows Media Center plays back flawlessly even scaled down to a window.

It's unable to utilize both ATSC and NTSC tuners at once. Shouldn't be a problem because without some serious registry hacks in Windows Media Center you can't use both. (one or the other)

I haven't tried but apparently recording ASTC/NTSC while watching the other will cause errors.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice if it had true dual ATSC and NTSC tuners. (As I sync WMC recorded programs to the Zune and Zune won't support DTV for some odd copyright nonsense or something like that)

Otherwise, in Windows Media Center this does what it's designed to do flawlessly: sit in the background and produce a wonderful image. (ATSC, that is. NTSC is still kind of ghosty)

2 out of 5 eggsNo Wonder

Pros: 1.Did'nt Crash Windows Xp Yet.
2. Analog Cable in looks good but I have not figured out the audio problem yet.

Cons: 1. No Manual, no technical documentaion with CARD.
2. No Audio. I have to disable this Card's HD Audio to get my PCI Audio to work with other apps. Audio is still dead with drivers enabled and in Catylyst pack.
3. Catalyst has to be the worst software package I have ever seen.
4. Confusing Specs NO CLEAR QAM support on PCI card only on PCIE card and then only with VISTA.

Other Thoughts: I think AMD wants ATI to get out of this business altogether. When you look at the software and documentation you can see that they have taken all the money away to support the product. I expect ATI to exit this Wonder Biz by 2009.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: works good, i use it mostly to capture video from my video camera.
works great to watch tv.

Cons: The software it comes with is not the greatest. if you have vista or media center, you don't really need it. Installation on vista is tricky,
so if it crashes, let vista install the drivers, then install the other software.

5 out of 5 eggsnVidia drivers and this card

Pros: I'm writing this in case you upgrade your nVidia video card drivers to Release 163. I have the 8600GTS. If you put in that version of the video drivers, the ATI Catalyst Media Center will go black on the video. The reason is the addition of the HD Pure Video support for XP in R163.
With the prior nVidia drivers, the OTA HD is stunning on my Acer AL2223W LCD monitor set to 1680 x 1050.

Cons: None really. Works as advertised. I'd less than honest if I didn't add that ATI needs to patch its software to work with nVidia's Pure Video technology. Face it, nVidia won the video card wars.

Other Thoughts: I'm waiting for ATI to patch their Catalyst Media Center to run the nVidia Pure Video adapted to XP. Obviously, nVidia isn't going to rewrite its drivers to work with ATI's software.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Windows XP MCE

Pros: Good picture, fast channel changing, plug and play installation (with ATI driver updates available online), and automatically detected by XP MCE. MCE Remote discount with purchase from ATI

Cons: ATI Catalyst Media Center utterly failed to work when installed; XP MCE seems to be a much better solution. Only one digital tuner for HDTV. XP MCE Remote not free with tuner.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Both HD (OTA) and seperate cable inputs. Excellent quality video. This card is without a doubt one of the best cards I have owned. HD content looks GREAT.

Cons: ATI's software package leaves alot to be desired. Load the drivers only and use another software package to watch and record tv like Beyond TV (fully supports this card)

Other Thoughts: If you plan on building an HD PVR, dont skimp on the basics. Get yourself a good Video Card and a later model processer, Perferably a nice dual core (either amd or intel) If you dont do the above, dont cry when your playback studders. I have used Hauppague and ATI and ATI's quality blows Hauppague away. I threw my Hauppague cards in the garbage after watching HD tv on this card

2 out of 5 eggsBig Disappointment

Pros: Separation of TV and Video card was what I was looking for. As a long time user of All-in-Wonder products I was looking forward to not being limited by whatever video chip ATI combined it's excellent TV hardware/software solution with. HD and FM radio functionality a bonus.

Cons: Good that I started with a fresh build and new Windows MCE because this version of ATI's Catalepsy software will not uninstall, even with the ATI 'remove all' utility. The set-up program locked up repeatedly and would not configure. Windows Media Center reported errors and would not configure. RMA'ed the card and received a second but had simular results. Tried a different Mobo and even add-in sound blaster luck.

Other Thoughts: Some here have had success. I thought years of experience with 2 All-in-Wonder cards would serve me well. This rascal gave me fits.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great SD video quality; I down-convert my HiDef video into the S-Video connection and it easily surpasses DVD quality.

Cons: No luck with the Over-the-air HiDef in Japan. The move to Catalyst Media Center is horrible; recording options for the software are poor. Due to using ATi Media Center in Vista, I do incur a lot of crashes during recording.

Other Thoughts: Standard Definition video quality is great... much better than the HDTV wonder.
