ATI All-in-Wonder boards operate with AMD’s Windows Vista ready display and capture drivers under the Windows Vista operating system. However, the Windows Vista Media Center application does not support TV/Capture functionality provided by the ATI All-in-Wonder . TV/Capture functionality is qualified to function with Snapstream’s BeyondTV 4.6 for Windows Vista. Other third party solutions (such as Arcsoft’s Total Media 3) may support TV/Capture with the ATI All-in-Wonder™, but these applications have not been fully tested by AMD.
