Based on Will Smith's recommendations on setting up a media server, I added an ATI TV WONDER PRO pci card to my rig (Intel 2.6, P4P800 mb with 1 gig ram ATI RADEON 9600 XT video, XP Pro). Sure didn't find it anywhere for $50, more like $100. But the performance SUCKS. It will not run Beyond TV at ALL, its slow and causes system problems (not crashing any more, but can slow a 2.6 mhz machine to a virtual CRAWL).

MicroSoft closed the ticket after they tried a fix and said it probably would be addressed in service release 2 at the end of July. ATI took the report but hasn't responded at ALL. Beyond TV sent a tracer/debugger, took the report and haven't responded.

So, it's time to dump this turkey (anyone looking for a TV WONDER PRO with remote, hardly used??).

Has anyone used the ATI integrated TV cards on a similar setup and had good performance? I really want to do the media server thing, but if the TV card won't work, then why waste the money???

HELP!!!!!!!!

I have an All-In-Wonder 8500DV (tv tuner built into video card) and I have no problems running Beyond TV.

Are you using the latest drivers for your TV card?
It may help to reinstall them
