I have a Pixelview PlayTV Pro that uses this chip, though I'm using the loop
cable back to Line In at the moment.
I've also just ordered a Matrox G200TV (for $41), as the PixelView board
doesn't have any hardware MJPEG capabilities, and a 1GHz P3 isn't fast
enough to capture and playback at the same time at decent resolution.
