    I have a ATI All in Wonder card that I've been using to create VCD's of home movies.

    But, lately I've been considering running a cable line up to the computer desk and connecting that as well to utilize the tuner feature.

    I was wondering, is there any "TIVO"-type software out there that'll allow me to record programs based on keywords?

    I've never used TIVO or any PVR.. but, I have a good idea how they work.

    Not sure what model of all in wonder you have, but I know the more recent ones come with PVR software. THink it is called TV On Demand.

    Dave,

    Check out ATI's website or look at the CD they sent with your card (if it is fairly recent). They have a free suite that includes PVR functions built especially for their cards. I hear it is a pretty good program and the price can't be beat (free!)

    I had 2 minutes so I looked it up (called ATI Multimedia Center 7.2):

    Thanks guys... I have a All in Wonder VE that I bought on double clearance at Best Buy a year or two ago. It's really kind of a crappy card.. but, I'll do some digging and see if there's any PVR software in the box.

    On the Windows side of things look at a program called ShowShifter. I have used that and I like it. I think it is about $40 or so.
    For the Linux side look at MythTV. I am useing that now, and love it. And, it's free. It will work with just about everything out there.

    Also check out Snapstream 3. It's great.

    Weird. I have the same card and was just about to make this thread. (And I'm a Dave)

    Good thing I checked first [​IMG]
