I missed this one yesterday, but our friends at Tech Report have posted a review of the X800 XT All-in-Wonder card that offers a healthy does of gaming performance along with great video input and output capability. 

ATI used digital tuners back in the days of the Radeon 8500DV, but switched to analog tuners from Philips for more recent All-in-Wonders. For the AIW X800 XT, ATI has returned to silicon-based digital tuners, which supposedly offer higher quality and quicker tuning. Since the image quality of analog tuners has been good enough for recent All-in-Wonders, it seems likely that ATI made the switch to digital because smaller silicon tuners consume less board real estate.
