I just got and installed my tuner card. Everything works fine except I CANT WATCH TV. IT receives the channels, but only still pictures. I cant get it to get full motion. Does anyone have experience with these and can anyone help??

i had the same problem with mine. Go to ATI.com goto tech support FAQ. goto TV WONDER. near the bottem of the list is a description of your problem. It gives you an email address for a solution for this problem. I can't remember off hand what this address was but the problem is an direct overlay setting problem when using the NVIDIA TNT Video card with ATI tv wonder. you need to goto RUN in your start menu and type REGEDIT. click on HKEY Local machine. click on SYSTEM. click on current control set. click on SERVICES. Click on CLASS. click on DISPLAY. click on 0000. click on NVIDIA. click on DIRECT DRAW. in the right hand column a list of files appears. click on OVERLAY MODE. this opens a small "Windows-type" box. in the area named VALUE DATA the number should say 1 change the number to 2 or 4. (I am currently set at 4 although 2 has worked for me before.) After you change this number you should find that the Tv tuner works fine without reseting your computer.

By the way, where the ##### do you get the ATI tv-tuner drivers????? I've got one CD and they say I don't have any ATI hardware installed!!!
Although windows98/2000 detected my card, it seems I can't locate the drivers for them, neither install the software!!!
Do you have any adress where I could find them???

What display adapter do you have? See "Only a single frame of the TV image is shown using an ATI-TV Wonder with a TNT/TNT2 based graphics card" at http://support.ati.com/infobase/3557.html. Larry
