    So Ive had some deal for awhile that just basically uses my LCD as a tv screen. It was good but I wanted to be able to do PIP and other stuff. Bestbuy had the ATI Wonder Pro for 30 after rebate. So I bought it, and it sucks balls, the audio falls out of sync with the video after several minutes, the recording part crashes after about 5 minutes of recording. its horrible. I do like the features that it offers however. Anyone know of a good PCI tuner card that has record/PIP etc for under $70?

    I have had that card for almost two years now, and it works great. The remote is nice.

    Same card here, but I find that sometimes when I try to turn the software off, the program keeps running in task manager and feeding the audio through. When I kill the process the card continues feedng audio until I reboot the computer.. it's bizarre.

    I also haven't been able to get the scheduled recording working.

    These are all software issues I think.
