Unless your looking at a combined 3D vid card/dvd card, the only option in the Real Hollywood card.

If you're loking for a combined DVD/Vid card or a DVD/vid card/TV capture then you get a few more options. The best, IMHO is the ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 32meg. It's the only combo TV tuner/3D vid card that I know of that also has a hardware DVD decoder. Of course, ATI drivers are known to be cr@ppy, but they've recently started paying more attention to this.

ATI also has a new All-In-Wonder Radeon 8500DV, but I haven't been able to check it out yet and so reserve my opinion. One good feature of this new card is the wireless RF remote, which will let you pause,FF, etc even if the computer playing the DVD is in another room. It'll save me the cost of getting a seperate DVD player for the TV.
