- tv in and tv out
- tv recording
- tv as second monitor
a regular tv tuner card is an input only device. but most all modern graphics cards that support dual monitors have tv out capability.
I have been looking for quite a while for a fairly high end grahics card plus a tv tuner that is for a PCI-Express machine. I know there at some out there such as ATI All-in-Wonder X1800, but I am really looking for a tv in, as well as a tv out, so i cant hook it up to my tv while recording tv, or play doom III on the tv as well. Does such a product exist, or do i have to break up my grahics card and tv turner to get the tv out feature?
xl1800 and xl1900 are not ati a-i-w model numbers. here's what available in the a-i-w lineup. all will have more/less the same video/tv features. the differences will be with the graphics processors.
+ x1900 a-i-w is the top of the line and great for gaming ($450)
+ x1800xl a-i-w is last year's model and good at gaming ($350)
+ x800xl a-i-w is older tech but is still a good midrange gamer ($300)
+ a-i-w 2006 edition is the current product but with a very low end graphics chip (x1300). it's not really suitable for gaming imho. ($180)
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
