    I have a TV card on my AMD based system so I can watch TV, Listen to the Radio and import analogue video formats, but I'm wondering if a PCI TV card is available for the PowerMac's (G4/5). Or would I have to buy the "All-in-Wonder" model of the Ati graphics cards?

    Why not a Formac DV/TV? For $400 you get the ability to take in S-Video as DV and watch TV on your Mac.

    Having noted in many of your previous posts that you extoll the virtues of PC v Mac and that you do not own a mac currently, with no plans to do so.

    Are you not, just trolling?

    There are many solutions. USB, FireWire, and PCI. AlchemyTV (formerly Televio) is the newest PCI offering that has, so far, received pretty good reviews. XLR8YourMac has some good info on it and others. Also, TiVo has a home media option that's pretty good for a small network. Not as cheap, but good quality and lots of features. No All-In-Wonder, but blame ATI for that.

    Simple forum search will yield similar results. Lots of info. ;)
