ATI TV Wonder 650
In stores this week and immediately pulled out
In what appears to be a quick retail turnaround, ATI has issued a major nationwide recall of its ATI TV Wonder 650 graphics cards. Although details of the recall remain unclear and ATI has not issued official reasons for the recall, several readers have emailed
noting that the TV Wonder 650 cards have begun disappearing from store shelves.
Retail chains such as Best Buy were the first to take the new cards off store shelves. A few readers have emailed
claiming that ATI TV Wonder 650 was already off the store floor this morning. One
reader emailed us to claim, ATI has also asked Best Buy stores to note to customers that a "similar product [will be released] in the near future." At this time, no word has come out on what the new product actually is, or if the defective card actually made its way to customers.
The majority of the recall seems to affect Best Buy stores, where an ATI insider has noted that there is a problem with the boards. An ATI insider told
"the TV Wonder 650's have been removed and were mostly in Best Buy chains. They claimed to have 40 channels, but only about 30% to 50% of them worked." At the moment, it's also unclear whether or not more recalls will be issued in other retail chains such as Fry's Electronics.
ATI PR and official roadmaps have been talking a great deal about the TV Wonder 650, and the roadmaps indicate that the product is still on schedule.

. The 200 model, however, appears to be safe from recalls.

Apparently you do not own a recently made analog tuner. Broadcast flags are in those now. Try burning a recording of a made-for-tv hollywood movie with MCE 2005 and it will block you. Not really a big deal not to be able to burn. However, some movies have a time limit and they are deleted automatically. Again, not a big deal but in some instances you have less than 30 days to watch it.
