TV Wonder™ 600 USB and TV Wonder™ 650 PCIe allow users to easily turn their PC into a feature-rich home theater

AMD (NYSE: AMD) today introduced two new solutions that offer high-definition television (HDTV) viewing and digital video recording (DVR) capabilities on desktop and notebook PCs. With the launch of these two new multimedia products, AMD continues to blaze a leadership path in video capture that bridges the analog and digital HDTV worlds. With the external plug-and-play ATI TV Wonder™ 600 USB, a desktop or notebook PC easily becomes a feature-rich DVR for HDTVs.

The easy to install TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe is a combo tuner that can capture both locally-available over-the-air and cable programming, including HDTV where available. The PCIe add-in card offers ClearQAM technology that captures unscrambled digital channels that may have previously been unavailable. Both products come with AMD’s Catalyst Media Center™ software, and integrate seamlessly with Windows Vista® Media Center and Windows® XP Media Center Edition.

“More and more, customers are using the PC as a digital hub for TV and video capture and these solutions put The Ultimate Visual Experience™ in reach of almost any PC user,” said Matt Skynner, vice president of marketing, Graphics Product Group, AMD. “These new HDTV tuner products provide a perfect complement to AMD’s graphics solutions, AMD LIVE!™ platforms, and AMD Turion™ 64 mobile technology-based notebooks – delivering simplified home theater PC options that come together for uncompromising visual quality and ease of use.”

The ATI TV Wonder 600 USB package includes a slim credit-card-sized IR remote control, A/V input adapter for video capture from a camcorder or VCR, and user-friendly Catalyst Media Center Software. Catalyst Media Center offers a simplified user interface optimized for TVs, an advanced electronic programming guide, DVD authoring and playback, video conversion and AMD LIVE! On Demand powered by Orb! for accessing the DVR from any computer with a broadband connectivity.

Extending the ATI TV Theater family, the ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe features ClearQAM tuning, allowing PC users to receive unencrypted digital content available from their local cable television provider. The ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe is a combo-tuner DVR, so users may switch between analog and digital TV to watch and record a digital TV program while simultaneously watching/recording an analog TV channel. The ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe also features high image quality, 3D comb filtering, and FM tuner.

The ATI TV Wonder 600 USB and ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCIe are scheduled to be widely available throughout North America by September 2007.

If you have an open RMA type issue with us then we kindly ask that emails be directed there instead of forums. The support staff rarely check these forums when dealing with issues of this nature.

I think that the items we are short on are due in today so Ill keep you posted.

Hmm, have you actually submitted a ticket, just done a search via your email address on the support system and at the moment I can't find anything on there for you.

The system will come up with a troubleshooter at times before final ticket submission whicn can be alittle confusing for people.

About your order, we are still awaiting our delivery of the Raptor as discussed on the phone the other day. We can ship out part tomorrow if thats of use so you have stuff for the weekend?

Found you on our system, the email address used for the ticket is different to that of your forums username
