I have dabbled myself, with ATI All in Wonder and some vintage PC to TV adapters from the earliest stages, as well as USB capture devices, in aid for photos and video as well as audio sources into digital PC files for easy manipulation online and off, even re-printing to a local printer is benefited by such hardware add ons
What I'm finding out about my ATI Wonder Pro/Elite is worth addressing, since like many hardware cards, people often don't get them as new bundled items and use the Internet to find the needed software and support.
This thread can be a future guide for anyone wishing to use their PC or laptop as a TIVO like DVR, Digital Video Recorder which have themselves included DVD burners and IDE/SATA drives for storage. So, not unlike a PC, TIVO has used much the same hardware but a streamlined approach that apparently is harder to replicate on a PC with various software and hardware, but still, as it seems in my search, lacking in old and new solutions that are good enough in any one area
For instance, ATI's AIW being a quintessential product for years now, they opted to fuse Cyberhome software with their card's drivers, or offer a unified approach with Catalyst versus their earlier all-in-one software.
The reviews of which show that there's issues with that approach they adopted, and using Windows OS or Media Center Edition's own Media Center app with any add-on card presents the same challenges.
This is just one search I did to see where the program for ATI's card might reside, with the above link being highlighted ^
