The AiW DV ships with software called Guide Plus that, with a little bit of configuration information, fulfills this exact function.
The 2nd Firewire port is located on this dongle. ATi is one of the few manufacturers I can think of that actually fills up the box that the video card comes in: September 30, February 25, Europe, Pro variant. Which brings us to the question raised in the byline: This would be great if you had a system set up as a home theatre unit, since you can even access the windows shutdown menu and display properties to change settings if they were required. With so many DV-related chips on the front side of the PCB, there’s no room for any of the Radeon DV’s memory chips, which are relegated to the back of the card.
