QUESTION: Good, cost-effective tuner/capture card

    Hey, all.

    I have a low-end Hauppauge card - one of the WinTV series, I think - I
    don't make a real clear note of what it is, because it was given to me
    free from a guy who bought something better.

    The newest version of BeyondTV allows for direct encoding into DivX,
    which would be great - but apparently it's a card-specific provision,
    and my card doesn't support it.

    I'm thinking of replacing it for something that will encode to DivX,
    and will maybe give me better image quality on the captures. I gather
    that some of the newer ATIs are pretty good, and cheap.

    In the ~100 range, is there currently a clear leader as far as
    tuner/capture cards are concerned? I have checked a few review sites,
    but thought I'd hit up the group as well.
