Anyone who follows the computer hardware industry knows that, aside from developing a broad range of Graphics cards, ATI has carved itself quite a niche in the multimedia market as well.  Known for their "TV Wonder" and "All-In-Wonder" series multimedia cards, ATI is a true pioneer in the industry, being one of the first to bring TV to the PC.   Fast forward a decade or more and now we find ATI right at the forefront of the multimedia foray as the digital media revolution is in full swing.  While the "Wonders" have matured with the times, bringing added features and improved image quality along the way, there was one area left relatively untouched,...
