Old Technology, but good for old PCs

Summary: I got this as a replacement to use in a very old, custom PC, which uses an AGP graphics card and runs on an Athlon CPU. I like the All-In-Wonder cards because they have A/V-in and A/V-out connections built-in. This is very handy for transferring old VHS tapes to your PC or to a DVD. The card also has a TV tuner built in, but it is analog-only and no longer usable.
Summary: I bought this card to start creating SVCD's (Super Video Discs - basically CD's you can play in your DVD Player) of my favorite show. I didn't have any problems getting this card to work right out of the box, but when I started watching/recording - I found a lot of strange static on the channel I wanted to record. After replacing all the cables I was sure it must be the card... as the same cable, plugged into an actuall television had none of this static.
Summary: I spent a full day researching which tv capture card I was going to get and decided on the all in wonder radeon 7500. I'm glad I did. The installation was smooth. Although it took a while to figure out how to set up to get audio. I have 4 surround sound speakers and an amplifier. When viewing TV, I finally did get sound, but it wasn't capturing the audio when I recorded. Just remember that the to plug the adapter into the "line out" connection to the sound card.
