The main thing I liked about the J. River Media Center 11 other than the fact that it just plain worked was the way the support for HDTV WONDER was done. Analog and HDTV OTA stations all appear on the same station list.
The video modes allow the player to run as a single window or full screen.
Here are a few notes I posted on Rage3D about the software.WindowsXP Beta Notes
I posted the following on Rage3D on March 3.http://www.rage3d.com/board/showpost...6&postcount=30
Yes, another program that works with the ATI HDTV WONDER card.
Actually works very well.http://www.jrmediacenter.com/http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=26241.0
Media Center 11 is available here:ftp://ftp.jriver.com/pub/downloads/m...nter110201.exe
I am able to use the ATI HDTV WONDER DTV section as well as Analog Tuner, Composite and S-VIDEO. They actually did a great job with this program.
Not a free program but it is one you can try out for 30 days.
This is the 1st program I have seen that understands the use of "non-cabled" connection to get the audio.
Now I do have a problem where I have to select TV first before S-VIDEO to clear the TV sound. Not sure why but.... It all works anyway.
I do think the beta has a few problems, if it did not it would not be beta then would it?
Note: I have my Dish connected to the RF input so I only see Channel #3 for the TV.http://img157.exs.cx/img157/1811/jriver7az.th.jpg

Well it is at least another program to try.
The Media Center 11 is a one program does all. You can select HDTV channels, analog channels, S-VIDEO and Composite all from the same place.
This program also handles all your music and videos.
Seems to record fine with HDTV content to MPEG file.
Analog also has a lot of record options.
It is nice to see even more 3rdParty support for the ATI HDTV WONDER.Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition

I was not able to test the ATI HDTV WONDER drivers but the WDM drivers for the ATI AIW 9700 PRO worked fine for me with the JRiver - MediaCenter Beta 110196 drop.JRiver - MediaCenter Beta 110196http://www.jrmediacenter.com/http://img93.exs.cx/img93/8985/jriver6xj.th.jpg
While I am not a JRiver - MediaCenter customer I do have like to know what works with the ATI media cards and I share what I have found.
