An item that just about any computer user has toyed with at one point or another is the TV input card; these can be incredibly useful for integrating systems, converting old home videos or one's VHS collection to VideoCD format, and for the more menial uses like taking screenshots for use as backgrounds or graphics in emails and other word processing tasks. For the most part, these come in two flavors: attached to a video card, and as a standalone.  The unfortunate problem is that, more often than not, the integrated versions are an afterthought and not as powerful as they could be. ATi is a company that has done very well with this model, however -- their TV Wonder and All-In-Wonder series are some of the best TV input devices around.  The latest flavor in this series is the TV Wonder USB, which as its name implies runs over USB to deliver performance without the sacrifice of a PCI slot or the replacement of your current video card.
