The card is made by ATI. I bought it a few years ago, and I don't think they make the exact same model, but do still carry the type.
It's sort of confusing when your looking for these things - too many options. Here's the model I have:
ATI-3D Pro Turbo PC2TV (DirectX) - Rage II/II+

Basically, you want to get one that has a video out featue, like PC2TV. I have one of those small TV's with a built in VCR. You just go ahead and record as you would any TV show.

Before buying that, I had tried the gadgets that hook up between the two machine.....not good.

I installed this myself. Just pulled out the old video card, and popped the new one in, and installed the software - no rocket science there.

One final thing. I've tried a lot of slide show type software, and the best one for this is by Play. It's called Performer, and it comes bundled with a bunch of other programs, under the name Gizmos. I can't find the link to the company, as it looks like they must have sold their PLAY.COM to Sony. However, I think the software is still available in stores at about $40-$50 (maybe less now).

Hope this helps.~Vikki

Many thanks. That's info I needed. The local Historical Society is putting together a computer system to allow them to present slideshows etc. and they wanted to be able to output their computer generated stuff to video tape. This will give 'em a place to start and get me off the hook. Thanks again. Tom
