>From what I understand, the analog support in the PC-2000 is something
just like a Hauppauge WinTV card: a frame grabber. If you want MPEG2,
you spend CPU cycles to get it there. I suspect the S-video input
spits out exactly the same data, but gets it from an unmodulated video
signal instead of from a tuned antenna/analog cable signal.
