I ran accross this card at my local CompUSA while looking for a new 3d Video Card. It is made by Visiontek and has an Nvidia 3 64MB AGP VGA Card, together with an interface device and software (including a remote control) that virtually turns your PC into a TIVO unit. The external interface unit has multiple input and output options including S-Video, Composite (Y,Pr
,Pb) and RCA.
Based on the claims of the unit on the box it appeared that it would record HD signals (1080i 16X9) provided you have a converter box or HD card in your PC.
I specifically sent an email to their tech support, who replied and said they believe the unit would record and playback HD, but they haven't tried it yet. Specifically, I want to hook it up to my Toshiba DST-3000 for recording. I have attached a link to their web site below.
Has anyone had experience with this card yet?? Do you think it will work. I was planning on buying a new GeForce Nvidia 64MB card anyway, and this unit, with the Nvidia chip is cheaper than many of the standalone Cards. CompUSA had the unit for $199, but I found it on the internet for $179.
Will this work?????
