Video Review #891 Summary

I've reviewed many TV Wonder products and they've all been very good, but AMD's ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe x1 takes the cake! Why this TV Tuner product is exceptional has mostly to do with the 650 Pro chip. This particular product has two tuners, one tuner is responsible for receiving analog TV channels and the other receives digital and HD channels. It's also capable of receiving FM radio. I should also note that the 650pro chip doesn't require any cooling, so it's a perfect option for a silent HTPC. Watch the video to find out more and check out the bloopers at the end.

I realize this is a very old REVIEW. But even back then, it was VERY SUPERFICIAL. No verbal mentioning of the problems at the times with Clear Qam or CMC's very poor ability to tune in much of what is available via Clear QAM; further w/o the option to manually add/map channels like in Vista Media Center TV PAck or W7 you can't add in those Clear QAM channels.

I like these tuners very much. BUT THEY WERE FAR FROM KICK ASS BACK THEN!!!!
