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 Snaptream'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.
