Thanks Volksjager,

Do you happen to have either the AIW or sound blaster?

i have an SB card posted on ebay together with a 7500 AGP card, but it isnt the 2 ZS you asked about.
there should be some of those on ebay as well.
the only AIW cards i have right now are AGP

We have a handful of old AGPs matched up with SB cards, too. Those still give the best VHS conversions and analog recordings.

For us, it's the software that gives us the power and flexibility for 'best' results, not the AGP or PCI connector - but the 'old' software, so if you can find those 7500 or 8500AIWs, their software should be equivalent to the last of the AGPs'.

it is definitely worth swapping your motherboard to one with an AGP slot

The Theatre Rage (100) and Theatre 200 chips are what matter, not AGP vs PCI vs PCI-E.
Creative Sound Blaster cards actually not as good as Turtle Beach cards, but those are much harder to locate these days.

Hi lordsmurf,

Would the turtle beach card work on my set up (P4 2.4 Ghz 2GB ram running XP)? If so, would any turtle beach card work? I see a few of them on eBay but not sure if they're the right ones. Thank you

The Santa Cruz cards are excellent -- much better than Sound Blaster cards.

- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turtle-Beach...item338ee3bb93
- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Voyetra-Turt...item3ce196c005
- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Turtle-Beach...item35d6cb05c5
- http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-in-Box-V...item4181317e98 (NEW!!)
- etc

When new, these cards were $35 (EOL) to $60.

I bought one, and liked it so much, that I bought several more and trashed (or retired) all other cards in my systems.

The biggest difference is that audio is not falsely pumped up -- like SoundBlaste cards of the era -- and has greater dynamics.

None of these cards would capture stereo though, correct? I only see a line in jack on these

yes they are stereo - you can use either:
1: a "Y" cable - red/white RCAs on one side and 3.5mm stereo phono jack (line in) on the other directly from your deck
2: an internal cd/aux audio cable from the ATI card to the sound card using the internal connectors on the cards
3: the ATI breakout cable to the line in jack

I assume the turtle beach cards are used for analog only capture, such as converting cassette and records to digital audio? Would these help with video capture when using an All-In-Wonder (AGP) capture setup?

The topic of the thread was ATI AIW cards ... so yes.

Hi,

Just got my hands on the 7500 ve radeon PCI card. I assumed this would work with the regular 4 pin mini din. Looks like the input is actually a non standard 8 pin mini din. Is there a place that sells a 4 pin SVideo to this 8 pin mini din or is there an adapter somewhere I can get? I can't test whether the card works cause of this roadblock. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much
