Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP.

+Good driver support (I'm running it in WinXP no prob)
+remote control
+ VCR functions
+choice of compression from any codec you have on your comp (divx fast motion, low motion etc)
+You can stretch it to any size you want (ratio free if you want), and it switches to full screen without changing the resolution of your monitor.
+FM radio, S-video inputs, etc...

-Doesn't have that cool ATI menu where it shows all the different channels in little preview windows at the same time
-Doesn't have Tivo style rewind, replay, fast forward

Retail is about $65, but I got mine for like $40 on sale at fry's

The ATI one is really good. I also built a system once with an All in Wonder Radeon 7500 and the tvtuner was great. The qaulity was great.

I am thinking about getting one but I will probably wait until there is a All in wonder Raedon 9700 because a 8500 wouldnt be much of an upgrade if I got that.
