Computer power has been progressing in leaps and bounds though, so it may well be time to revisit the whole ‘computer as media centre’ phenomenon and see what has been gained. The remote is definitely more attractive than the Fusion remote, but the MyHD remote is still the smallest of the three. Also note that the remote is technically from CyberLink and is made to work with the above software, so if you were to purchase a different Theater card, you would get some other remote. This is interesting since we would assume that making sure the Pro is running in a system with enough horsepower to keep up with it is the only way that ATI could afford to make a statement like this. As you probably know, MSI makes a wide range of computer products, including many videocards powered by ATI chipsets, so making a TV-tuner based on the Theatre Pro chipset does not seem like much of a stretch for the company. This is definitely a new wrinkle, as previous ATI TV-tuning chips did not process audio at all, and it was done by other components. Most people probably don’t go that extreme and good luck getting a clean signal if you split a coaxial input more than four ways , but it’s still something to consider.

TV-tuner cards have been with us for a while, but with the recent surge of digital video recording products and digital Television, they’ve taken a step back in terms of importance.

We’ve already reviewed one Theatre based product and found it to be the best TV-tuner we had yet looked at. Also it offers access to all recording settings for professional users: This means that owners of HD TVs need not apply, and owners should be prepared to use their own remotes to change 550pto on digital or satellite boxes, as the tuner card cannot do this by itself.
As we’ve mentioned already, though, there’s a big difference between doing something, and doing it well. Create recording profiles only with Professional version.
Supported Analog TV Cards. Some people 550po like the feature, but we generally just leave HTPCs running and found it to be more annoying than anything.

My top three choices are: Log in Don’t have an account? The maximum number of supported tuners under Windows MCE is four: As you probably know, MSI makes a wide range of computer products, including many videocards powered by ATI chipsets, so making a TV-tuner based on the Theatre Pro chipset does not seem like much of a stretch for the company. The audio is digitized with the bit analog to digital converter before being sent for MPEG encoding.

With the main difference being PCIe vs. I’m not much of 550lro radio listener anyway. In our experience with the chipset, a 1GHz processor with MB of memory and several gigabytes of hard drive space to spare should be considered the minimum to get the best out of the chipset.
Duh – as if that’s not totally clear If the analog support on the Theater is clearly superior to that of the other cards, the lack of other features may not matter.
Video processing features, including a 3D comb filter. While five or six years ago it might have seemed clearly desirable to connect your cable signal to your computer and have all your media controlled and recorded in one handy location, the technologies have diverged since, and TV-tuner technology has been on the back burner. As with the Fusion remote, be careful of the power button, as you can accidentally shut down the PC or put it in suspend mode rather than just turning off the software interface.
The software bundle of the PowerColor card is quite extensive. As we’ve just said, the ATI Theatre Pro chip is also a digital audio processor, and it receives the audio stream at the same time as the video stream.
It is a real pleasure working with someone like you!

Like most mainstream TV-tuner chipsets, the Theatre Pro does not handle high-definition TV, nor can it decode or change channels on digital cable or satellite signals without additional components.
