LAST EDITED ON Sep-17-00 AT 07:19 PM (GMT)

Im interested in buying a TV tuner for my computer and the ATI-TV TV Tuner looked good, but i was confused wether or not it would be compatible with my system.
I have a -- P3 450 -- 288 megs of ram -- Viper 2 vidcard -- Soundblaster live value --
Could anyone help me?


Also if you think there is a better TV tuner out there or this one doesnt work could you tell me of another brand. thx

No, I won't say I'm absolutely sure about anything regarding TV and video card combinations unless I've tried them. However, I will say as I did before, based on experience with ATI TV cards, that it probably will work. Buy it from a place with a 30-day money back guarantee. Larry

Hey do you think it would work on an AMD 800 Athelon with a voodoo 5 5500 and 128 megs ram? plenty of disk space and a good cd-rom drive.. ?? 19 inch monitor.. This would be a great solution for my room.. if only I knew if it would work.. I don't know.. anyone know someone who could answere this?? I also asked ATI in an e-mail.. I'll post what they say..
Thanks..

I have the All-In-Wonder Pro 128bt. I love it. It will work. I had the voodoo TV card for about an hour before returning it to the store. It SUX. ATI makes a great product.

Me THINKS the problem may be Win Me. And changes they mad for TV features. Here's what it says on ATI's site (http://support.ati.com/products/atitvwonder/winme/atitvwonder_winme_drivers.html):

After numerous phone calls and $75 in phone bills ATI told me it's a known problem and has no fix date in sight!

I have been asking them for about this problem since WinME came out.
