For example, we recorded some Fight Night: As well, ATI sells an optional component domino connector box for output, but you’ll have to order that separately. You can also search and get listings for things like movies, sports, actors and more. Highly recommended for home theater PC builders who need great TV recording capabilities though not HD and a capable gaming rig. It’s not a huge deal, but the first use or two may take a bit of searching through menus to find all the options. Radio works in pretty much the same fashion as TV does.

You can record, pause and rewind TV, though only on one channel at a time. Rewinding is also very slow.

For watching TV or what-have-you it’s fine, but for gaming, even a split-second is a problem. Component output is possible with a separately-purchased dongle, but component input is not. Also note that all settings were set to their highest for each game unless otherwise noted on the benchmark see Doom 3 pri.

Setting up a recording is as easy as designating how often you want it to record once, daily, weekly, etc. This may have as much to do with the video processor chip—the Theater —as with the tuner. Conclusion As you can make out from the benchmarks, ppro card is capable of putting up some pretty reasonable numbers.

Hardcore gamers will want to step up to a beefier card and maybe opt for a dedicated TV tuner card, however. The DVD and Good settings are very close in quality, and seeing as our testing resulted in reasonably similar file sizes on average, you might as well pick the slightly higher-res DVD setting for most recordings.


We still picked up a good pdo of grain and fuzz on some channels.

The idea is that they stack together neatly, with little rubber discs holding them securely together. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Output quality is as expected, which is to say good as far as S-Video and composite out from a PC goes.

So for example, if prk a big fan awi Edward James Olmos, you can see a listing of every show he’ll be in for the next couple weeks or so.

It’s definitely a capable card, and it’s one of a few options out there in its price range, it’s the only one with all of the added multimedia features.

Today we’re taking a look at the All-in-Wonder X Pro. Subscribing to a newsletter indicates your consent to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. If you pick up an additional TV Wonder card you can watch two channels at once, but out of the box you’re only getting a single tuner.

So if we take a reasonable average of MB per 5 minutes of recording time for either of the higher settings, you’ll need a little under 2. Changing channels takes a couple seconds to do both TV and radio so it’s a bit slow going.


aia Of course, you can manually hit the record button to capture video on the fly. This isn’t exactly high-resolution, but if you’re going to be playing these games on a TV then much higher probably isn’t supported anyway.

Capturing will generally be done with ATI’s own software, though once the card is properly installed you can use any Windows video supported application, like Microsoft’s own Windows Movie Maker or Adobe Premiere.

The interface for the PVR controls also leaves a bit to be desired; it’s functional, but not as nice as something like TiVo. Video-in, regardless of the type of connection, looks fantastic at the higher capture settings. For many, many moons now, ATI’s All-in-Wonder line of video cards have been a dominating force in the market of truly multimedia video cards. You won’t want to be reading websites all day long via one of these connections, though for general video and gaming playback it’s reasonable compared to the average.

ATI All-in-Wonder X600 Pro

ATI has made strides in this area with the AIW X Pro, which features a small silver dongle that screws into the top-back of the card. ATI has an All-in-Wonder X XT in the works that should hopefully be seeing a release in the very near future, but as of today this xx600 the fastest All-in-Wonder on the market. The 3DMark score was run at the default settings.
