Hi, I'm tired of my ATI TV Wonder PCI card. It is pathetic, the drivers for XP don't work, ATI just doesn't want to support it anymore.

I'm looking for a card that has GREAT stability in XP and allows for high res (640x480+) captures (and preferably that comes with software to capture straight to divx).

Does anyone know of such a card that isn't very expensive?

Thanks

i think most cards capture straight to jpeg and you can do the divx conversion yourself using some software. But as for the card, a Hauppage WinTV Studio seems to work pretty well for me.

The TV Wonder is fine in XP, just takes a lot of trouble to get it right.

Id recommend trashing the MMC, and using Dscaler from www.dscaler.org to watch TV

And PowerVCR II 3.0 for capturing. Has a lot of settings for capturing hig quality video. It is worth a look.
