    PCMCIA TV/FM card ... check it out

    I wonder if this would work in my Epia MII that has the pc card slot on the board. This way I would not have to use an angled PCI riser or make the case much thicker..

    Does anyone have any info on this .. ???

    Link to EvilBay item ...................


    wish I could get one to test out, but I gotta replace stuff from my smoked dvd case.

    It will work. Why not get a usb/tv one instead of a pc card one?

    Well I know you want to avoid the PCI riser and all, but in my experience dealing with video/TV capture cards, there's no substitute for PCI.

    I've done all kinds of USB and PCMCIA things when messing with Beyond TV, and the quality of anything but PCI is just ***. The bandwidth should be there for PCMCIA, but I don't know that brand to tell you that it's any good.

    Plus if you're gonna spend $50 on that, you might as well shell out another $20 and get a whitebox Hauppage PVR-150 PCI card from newegg, which works with every piece of software out there (myth, meedio, snapstream, etc) with no problems. You have no idea if this no-name thing is or what the quality looks like, so you might just end up $50 poorer and with another item in the parts bin...

    Thanks for the input.

    I'm used to having ATI All-In-Wonders in my desktops, and I have a few budget TV/FM cards (pci) to use as well.
