I am currently thinking about getting a video card with TV input
capability. The two I am looking at are the ATI All-in-wonder 8500 w/
128mb ddr ram. The other is the nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200 Personal Cinema.
Basically, I want to be able to do DVR on my PC, play TV shows back on
my TV, and not be limited to a TiVo-type box with a monthly fee. What I
am concerned about is that I have tried TV-out from a ATI card (ATI
Radeon VE 32mb ddr) via S-Video before, and the picture I get on my TV
has been far from good. I am wondering if anyone has any experience
using either of these cards, particularly in Linux, but also in general,
and whether they have gotten good quality going from PC to TV.
