As one would expect the bundle for the AIW is quite robust. We have a daughter card that allows several different types of inputs, a DVI to VGA adapter, a stereo input plug, and a composite video to S-Video adapter. We also see that ATI included a small antenna for picking up OTA signals. ATI does not include a remote, which we find a little lacking for such a piece of hardware.
You can see from looking at the slot cover that things are a little different here, the ATI AIW HD is packing both DVI and HDMI connectors, as well as a Coax input. The Coax input can accept your standard or digital cable, or can be connected with the enclosed antenna to pick up OTA (over the air) transmissions in HD. In our review today we’ll be doing the later, as St. Louis has a fair amount of broadcast HD stations available.
On the back of the card we see a few of the memory modules, and the ATI Theater 650 Pro chip.
