    hello everybody,i'm planning a trip to the Us,and i also planned to
    change my gf4ti 4600 with a R300 Aiw ATi card.
    The question is: can i use the tv-tuner features outside Us?i live in
    italy,so my tv standard is PAL-B.I heard about some deep switch on the
    PCB of some ATi card.

    the best deal i found is on www.newegg.com for a 9800pro Aiw for just
    361$,is there something better around?Where could I find a reasonable
    price (in soem on-line store) for the 9700 Pro Aiw?thnx in advance

    I think those dip switches are for TV output, alex. AIWs are normally
    _either_ NTSC _or_ PAL/SECAM.

    One possibility is to get a VIVO card: these don't have tuners but need a
    composite video input - you need to run them from the video output of
    something else that has a tuner, like a TV, VCR or cable box. However, they
    will accept and display all video formats, NTSC, PAL and SECAM. You can use
    TV apps with them, and they capture.
