does anyone know anything about when the video in/out module for the Elsa Gladiac will be available. I have seen it on thier web site for months but they dont seem to be producing it and/or selling it. I cant find it on pricewatch or anywhere else either.
thanks

I have the video module for the Gladiac. The output is good but you have to use the original Elsa drivers. The D3 drivers do not support it and give you inverted colors on TV output. If you are willing to put up with the Elsa driver, you can find the module by going to:
<A HREF="http://www.ibuyer.net" target="_new">http://www.ibuyer.net</A> or
<A HREF="http://www.computershopper.com" target="_new">http://www.computershopper.com</A>
and doing a search for Elsa.

thanks a lot. All the dealers i checked out seem to be out of stock but this seems like the right track. I wonder why it wasnt on pricewatch?

Don't know why the video module is not on pricewatch. I couldn't find it there either.

Elsa just released a new version of their driver based on the D3 drivers supporting WinMe and video out only (no video in). I am trying the drivers now and they are very buggy. I am getting a blue screen when I click on the Elsa tabs in the advanced display window.

Hey just to let both of you know there is a utility out called tv tool that lets you use the nvidia ref drivers and gives you better tv output. I have used it on a tnt, tnt2 and geforce card and it works great. Also lets you put it in startup with a switch to automatically output to tv. I have a box setup rght now that uses it, I use it for games, Internet and I have a hollywoodplus DVD card that I use for movies

since this is the last day of april, I am firmly convinced that the Vivo module does not exist. So I shall stop scouring the earth for it and buy an ASUS deluxe or a radeon AIW. [-peep-] you elsa.

The features on the AIW are good, if you plan on using them. To get the AIW for under $200, you can go to the website and do the "trade-up Program" find an old video card and use that as the trade in, then sell your current card for whatever it worth. I almost bought one and with the mail in rebates had the price around $170 including shipping.
Sell AIW Pro 8MB: $50
Get AIW Rebate: $30
use and old 4MB PCI or ISA graphics Card for trade up: $0
250-80=$170 :)
If not the Delux form Asus works (if you don't need the TV tuner )

If it works for you then don't fix it.

I'll probably end up with the Radeon AIW since, as far as i know, it has better mpeg capture capabilities and the Tv tuner will be nice. And i didnt write [peep] you elsa in my last post, whats up with that :)
