Vista 32 bit and ATI 550 Pro TV Tuner Setup
Here's one for the books. Been trying to find out if my ATI Theater 550 Pro
tuner (on-board decoder) will work in Vista. Email to ATI resulted in a
link to a page that essentially said that a driver would not be ready until
mid 2007. I've also read here that others could not get it to work....

Tonight I noticed that there was an MS update for the ATI - so I downloaded
it. Later I clicked on Windows Media Center and went thru the automatic
configuration. Had the message that it was downloading (something) for over
a half hour - so I canceled and went into manual mode. Very simple
follow-the-bouncing-ball setup. Finally made the selection for live TV and
about fell out of my chair went up pops a live TV station....

Now I have a 3 monitor setup and I have a multi-boot test setup right now.
The tuner uses ATI's Multi-media software under WinXP and will only play on
the main monitor. With MS Window Media Center software, I can move the TV
to any one of the displays - that's neat!

Haven't played with all the setup options for recording/playback but just to
let others know that have the same tuner - it really does work under Vista
with the latest MS update.
