Powercolor Theatre 550 Pro TV Tuner Review - Powercolor Theatre 550 Pro TV Tuner Review
Mon, March 14 2005 | 8:08PM | PermaLink Feedback?

In this review, PCstats will be testing out the Powercolor Theatre 550 Pro TV tuner, which is based on ATI's Theatre 550 Pro digital audio/video processing chipset. As you might or might not know, this particular chipset is currently the hottest thing in TV-tunerland, due to its support for a number of uncommon features, including 2D and 3D comb filtering. As you might expect, the ATI Theatre 550 chip is also found in ATI's latest Multimedia products too.

Powercolor has amassed a good reputation for building affordable, no-frills computer video products. System requirements for this card are pretty steep for a TV-tuner. A minimum of a Pentium 4 or P4 Celeron, Athlon or Sempron processor is required, along with 128MB of memory. The NTSC model was tested here, PAL versions are also available.
