If $129 is a little too much for your taste, the cheaper TV Wonder 200 is priced at a more reasonable $59. Like its big brother, the TV Wonder 200 includes a 125-channel TV tuner and PVR software with support for DivX, H.264, MPEG-2/4, and WMV9 video formats. However, it doesn't appear to share the TV Wonder 650's "free-to-air" HDTV support, built-in FM tuner, and image processing capabilities.
Curiously, ATI makes only passing mention of hardware acceleration for its new tuners. It says the TV Wonder 650 is capable of hardware MPEG2 compression, but doesn't clarify whether that applies to both standard and high definition content. Hardware acceleration isn't listed for the TV Wonder 200, which presumably handles compression on the CPU.
