nice review

from http://www.falconfly.de/voodoo3-3500.htm

###WIN 9x###

22 Nov 2000
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 V1.06.00rc1 8907k ZIP Non-US Version, Release Candidate 1

29 Nov 2000
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 V1.06.00rc1 8943k ZIP US Version, Release Candidate 1

FalconFly's Tip -
When using a Voodoo3 3500 with the TV Application, dedicated Voodoo3 3500 Drivers are required...
Be sure to choose the correct regional Driver! Above Non-US Versions will NOT function with US based Systems, and can cause significant errors!

1"significant errors" which ones?
2 what is "US based Systems" ? a 3500 with NTSC support? Non-US are Pal-N / Pal-M ?
3 which is the best driver (with VisualReality support) avaible for win9x ?
4 and AmigaMerlin 2.9 (does it has a TV tuner Application)?

5 is this the Lastet VisualReality for Win9x?

###Alternative TV Software###
30 Sep 2003
DScaler V4.18b 1957k ZIP Beta Release
Source : http://deinterlace.sourceforge.net

FalconFly's Tip -
The 3dfx VisualReality TV Software is known to experience Problems on some Systems, mostly under Win2k/XP.
The DScaler Software is a highly recommended Alternative in this case.
Many Versions exist, but above were found recommended & tested as suitable for common use.
Visit DScaler Project page for Details and support...

6 "to experience Problems on some Systems"
Which ones, are there still there?
7 and for winXP, best config? (which TV tuner Software and How do u configure it...)

Anyway, here's the complete list of TV features :-
FM Stereo and TV Tuner Feature Sets
Complete FM stereo tuner capabilities, including Seek and Scan
CD-quality FM stereo with dbx
125 channel cable-ready TV tuning capacity, including video capture, playback and recording
MPEG 2 encoding via software codec
Full motion video support via DirectDraw/DirectSound Support for NTSC, PAL and SECAM formats, as well as S-Video and Composite In/Out
DVD playback support via Intervideo WinDVD
Zoom, skin selection, and channel surf functions
Support for closed-caption and teletext with PAL versions
Real-Time MPEG-2 and .AVI Video Capture
Advanced MPEG-2 Video Editing Software
Output high quality video to TV/VCR
Stereo Audio with dbx support
Program your computer to record your favourite programs to your hard drive
Control Brightness, Contrast, Color and Tint for the perfect picture
Supports channel-blocking for Parental Control

8 the last one
all these features' list, are working both win9x & winXP?
it would be nice, to do a mini-tutorial (updated to the lastest files' releases )

thanks in advance, bye
