I had a Diamond Viper V770 (AGP). I was SOL. The card was good for me
on most apps but there were always small incompatabilities, even in
windows. I tried the latest NVidia drivers to no avail. Since
DiamondMM is gone so it is really difficult to get support for this
card. So I bit the bullet and bought a MSI Geforce 4MX 440 with video
in and out. I'm not using the video in just yet; I'm still using my
hauppauge winTV, but overall the card has behaved with the NVidia drivers.
In general, from what I've read in this group, a cheap NVidia Geforce
generallly works well. You can also visit
http://www.xfree86.org/cardlist.html to check your card per Xfree86.
Other than that, buy your new card at a place with a generous return
Check the online myth-tv FAQ and the message board. There is currently
a thread going on about system components. you can easily do a search
of the mailing list using google search with "site:snowman.net" in the
search string excluding """'s of course.
