I cannot send the tv picture on my screen #2. a big disapointment. I was able to do this with a x800 all in wonder! why going back? Win7 x64. It work very well on the screen #1. I'm pasing trough a decoder, then in this card s-video input. Even going directly in the coax input without decoder give the same result. If you have only one monitor, it will work.
This card works flawlessly with Win7 64 bit. Drivers installed automatically (did not bother with supplied ATI install disk). TV capture quality in WMC is excellent, probably better than the X800 All-in-wonder AGP that I upgraded from. Media Centre software is very user friendly, have yet to determine whether some recorded shows are protected from burning to DVD (Microsoft apparently bowed to pressure from Movie industry in copyright protection). If so, may be forced to use ATI software.
Bought this onsale for $39.99 to take the place of my AIW9600XT because I have at last switched to at PCIe system. Picture quality is great. Have not tried the ATSC tuner, but once I get an antennae am looking forward to OTA HD TV.
So far, my TV Wonder 650 is working very well. I had some problems getting the drivers installed using the included CD but got it working AFTER installing the most up to date ATI Catalyst Media Center and then going back to install from disc. I then wrote over the CD drivers with the up to date ones after it was working.
Got this card to work with Win7 64 bit no problem. Win7 installed the drivers automatically. Only problem was select ing the tuner, it did not pick the tuner up by default, so had to select it manually in Media Centre. TV capture quality is outstanding, much better than the ATI, or Power Cinema software. I much prefer Media Centre over ATI's software as well, in terms of ease of use and seamless integration. Microsoft has finally done something right.

Bought this only having Microsoft/ATI dump support for the 550 version in Windows 7 (it worked fine in Win7 beta). Good quality picture, low profile. Came with free remote during a sale and it worth it just for the remote!
This card has been working quite well for me. The broadcast quality is good. If you are going to try this card though, make sure you're in a location where you will get a good signal (if you are using over the air signals). I bought an antenna with this, and down in the basement where I use my computer, the antenna will hardly pick up a signal. When hooked up to the larger antenna installed in the attic, it does great.
