This is the ATI Theater PRO TV tuner card used in some Gateway(R) Media Center computers. TV Tuner Card ONLY. DOES NOT include drivers, manuals. ATI theater pro. I reinstalled windows and all the drivers, etc.. I installed all the drivers for my tv tuner card along with an MPEG2 codec. ATI today unveiled its latest video processing chip, the Theater Pro, touting the part as a 'PVR on a chip'. However, the company's recently.

ATI Theater 550Pro Driver
Computer power has been progressing ATI Theater 550Pro leaps and bounds though, so it may well be time to revisit the whole 'computer as media centre' phenomenon and see what has been gained.
We've ATI Theater 550Pro reviewed one Theatre based product and found it to be the best TV-tuner we had yet looked at. In our experience with the chipset, a 1GHz processor with MB of memory and several gigabytes of hard drive space to spare should be considered the minimum to get the best out of the chipset. The bit encoding engine boasts 2D 5-line comb filtering and a 3D comb filter.
The 3D comb filter reduces artifacting and colour bleeding in the final image. A noise-reduction engine is ATI Theater 550Pro built into the chip to reduce visual static from the original video signal. MPEG 2 video and audio encoding is integrated into the chip, taking the load off your system's processor.
ATI Theater 550Pro As we've just said, the ATI ATI Theater 550Pro Pro chip is also a digital audio processor, and it receives the audio stream at the same time as the video stream. More when we get a full demo or a press sample or two! Hijacking the PRO over breakfast The Multimedia guys invited me for breakfast the day after, to chat some more about PRO, before they flew off to Amsterdam later that day for the next leg of their whirlwind tour.

During breakfast the guys had to take ATI Theater 550Pro quick conference call, so we headed back upstairs, where I was left in the demo room with the demo hardware still hooked up. But since we were in a hotel having breakfast, a good English breakfast I might add, some basic board shots on a plain background didn't quite sit right with me.

A fresh cup ATI Theater 550Pro coffee, clean cutlery, arranged napkin and some jams and preserves in the background later and the staff in the breakfast lounge at the hotel were asking me what the hell was going on. Time for the PCI Express version now. We're ATI Theater 550Pro this time, it was the demo sample that didn't quite work, that press got to hold and look at up close.
ATI Theater 550Pro A little tomato sauce wouldn't matter much. Many of the PRO's transistors are dedicated to the ATI Theater 550Pro video circuitry that processes analogue video data direct from the Microtune tuner. What's amazing is that PRO was signed off as a working, retail-ready hardware product on the first spin of the silicon.
Some low level gate tweaking using specialist tools at a silicon analysis firm, to ATI Theater 550Pro enhance the quality of the analogue circuitry, was done, with ATI then sending the tweaks back to TSMC to be incorporated into a final spin, PRO's second, that's to be sold in retail PRO-based hardware worldwide. ATI are quite proud of the fact it was done in a single revision, with only a very minor respin for the quality they were happy with.
