ATI Customer Care is a Joke!! I e-mailed my problem and they replied with their web site info. Anyways, I have A TV Wonder Pro Remote Control Edition PCI card and the TV is scrambled. I just took out a Creative Labs TV Tuner card that worked like a champ, but I could not burn the recorded shows so I bought this one. I updated to Win XP SP2, installed latest drivers, all the ATI updates, and checked all the "Common Sense" hook-ups. Everything works except for the scrambled TV! I tried disabling the Hyper-Threading in the Bios but same result. Losing Patience...
Intel P4 3.0Ghz Hyper-Threading (which I read may be the problem)
MSI 865PE NEO2 Mobo
2GB DDR 400
Win XP Pro
ATI X800 Pro Graphics Card
Creative Audigy 2 7.1

All Help is Extremely Appreciated:)!!

I have a similar system, and the exact same problem.

INTEL P4 2.6 with HT
MSI 865PE Neo2
1GB DDR Win XP Pro
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
ATI TV Wonder VE
ATI Remote Wonder
SB Audigy

I know it is not the cable conection.
I have moved the TV card from one PCI slot to another.
I have installed and uninstalled (twice) ATI Multimedia Center Versions 8.8 and 9.03.
I have the latest ATI catalyst drivers.
I dualboot this PC with Mandrake 10.0 and when I run xawtv the
picture is still fuzzy the same as XP.

It must be a hardware problem.
