Words from the company:
The value packed TV WONDER USB 2.0 makes full use of today's advanced ATI Theater 200 technology and USB 2.0 bus standard to deliver exceptional TV and video quality to the PC at a very affordable price. The USB 2.0 standard is 40 times faster than its USB 1.1 predecessor, so it can transfer raw, uncompressed video directly to your computer. As a result of the TV WONDER USB 2.0 utilizing the ATI Theater 200 technology the dramatically improved video displayed with the TV WONDER USB 2.0 is exactly the signal you received without the compression distortion inherent in the old USB 1.1 products.

The Review:
In the past I always had an all-In-Wonder TV tuner card so that I can capture from tv and other devices and that was great with the exception of some of the games were no compatible and would not work with that type of Video cards.
My new solution is the USB external TV tuner called the ATI TV Wonder USB 2.0
The set up is a breeze because it is external. It has its own power supply so you don"t have to worry about draining your system of power. The connection is into an USB 2 port and then the software; the drivers and the multimedia so you can have access to all of its features. It took me all of about a half an hour to get the whole thing set up including scanning the TV channels and getting the recording to the drive set up and tested.

This is a definite solution for those of you out there who want access to TV as well as be able to play high end games without interference. I would recommend this product highly.
