Conclusion As you can make out from the benchmarks, this card is capable of putting up some pretty reasonable numbers. Output quality is as expected, which is to say good as far as S-Video and composite out from a PC goes. Video-in, regardless of the type of connection, looks fantastic at the higher capture settings. For example, we recorded some Fight Night: They are as follows:. As well, ATI sells an optional component domino connector box for output, but you’ll have to order that separately. How much recording time you’ll get is a bit hard to determine since it seems that the files are compressed with variable bitrates.

Video-in, regardless of the type of connection, looks fantastic at the higher capture settings. For watching Prro or what-have-you it’s fine, but for gaming, even a split-second is a problem.
Other than that things work well, but the impatient need not apply. Round 2 footage on the Good setting and a 5: The DVD and Good settings are very close in quality, and seeing as our testing resulted in reasonably similar file sizes on average, you might as well pick the slightly higher-res DVD setting for most recordings. The Longer setting looked great as well and saves quite a bit on disk space.
ATI All-In-Wonder X PRO ( MB) Overview – CNET
Today we’re taking a look at the All-in-Wonder X Pro. If you’ve looked around at benchmarks for other X Pro cards you’ll likely know what to expect here. It’s not a huge deal, but the first use or two may take a bit of searching through menus to find all the options. It’s definitely a capable card, and it’s one of a few options out there in its price range, it’s the only one with all of the added multimedia features.
Setting up a recording is as easy as designating how often you x600 it to record once, daily, weekly, etc. You can record, pause and rewind TV, though only on one channel at a time.
Right-clicking on a program will let you flag it to record, set it as a favorite and search for more showings. Radio works in pretty much the same fashion as TV does. As mentioned, the recording quality is great. The Video CD setting looks OK, but it really should only be used for recording crap that you have no concerns over the quality of, or if you’re auw low on disk space.
Highly recommended for home theater PC builders who need great TV recording capabilities though not HD and a capable gaming rig.
There’s a slight delay as the video is converted, about a second, maybe less, so gaming through this device certainly isn’t ideal. You’ll get a frame update every few seconds, so if you’re trying to go back right to a certain play or a certain line, you’ll likely have to go back a bit and then watch up to it again.
Lower quality recordings obviously look worse, though they’ll work x6000 in a pinch when drive space is low and you’re capturing some random show off of network TV.
As well, ATI sells an optional component domino connector box for output, but you’ll have to order that separately.

Of course, you can manually hit the record button to capture video on the fly. For many, many moons now, ATI’s All-in-Wonder line of video cards have been a dominating force in the market of truly multimedia video cards. They alw as follows:. The interface for the PVR controls also leaves a bit to be desired; it’s functional, but not as nice as something like TiVo.

Changing channels takes a couple seconds to do both TV and radio so it’s a bit slow going. So if we take a reasonable average of MB per 5 minutes of recording time for either of the higher settings, you’ll need a little under 2. The other half lies in its 3D prowess. Some of them will give you different capture options, but inside ATI’s TV application you’re offered up four different recording presets.
The 3DMark score was run at the default settings. This certainly isn’t the fastest card on the market by a long shot, but for casual gamers it should do them fine. Video In The All-in-Wonder X Pro’s video-in capabilities are easily its strongest selling point and luckily its biggest strength as well. You can also search and get listings for things like movies, sports, actors and more.
