All i really need to know is what the deal with the TV tuner/caputer is. Can I just connect my cable line to the video card so i can record tv shows off the cable line? or do i need live tv to use the features?

Thanks, i actually went to the ATI site hoping to find out more info, and there was a link to another site with pretty much all the info i needed to know. It seems a bit confusing but i think once i have the actual hardware ill be able to figure it out! I hope!

you should be able to plug in the tv cable . . .

it has a coaxial connector

if youre gonna be using the AIW for tv recording, get a huge hard drive (no smaller than 200gig)

tv programming can really eat up your hard drive space

unless you have dvd+r drive and plan to burn dvds of the programs
