Default AMD Announces Three New TV Wonder Products

From our front-page news:
AMD announced three new ATI TV Wonder products today, the PCI and PCIe 600-Series and also the 650 Combo USB, suitable for desktop and notebook use. All three tuners allow watching/recording of Analog, Digital, Digital HDTV and even ClearQAM Digital HD Cable.

The most unique of the three is the 650 Combo USB, not only because it's portable, but because it offers dual tuners to allow "Combo" tuning of any available tuning modes. It also offers video processing such as a comb filter, noise reduction and also edge enhancement. Both the 600 PCI and PCIe tuners have an SRP of $99, while the 650 Combo USB has one of $149. All three will be available at Best Buy, through VisionTek branding.

From what i remember the market for these being back when i was interested in buying one of these, this seems nice

There are some video players that do the same thing though when it comes to tv recording and playback. that is a key feature for some people on these types of things. And for only a lil more :-/

That 650 combo looks like a great way to fill a PCI-E 1x slot. I will definitely have to look into it.
