I bought a TV-500 video capture card and I could not get it to
work after 6 hours. It has IRQ and driver problems.

I called their help line but the 800 number was a machine that was
useless and the toll line was busy almost all the time and the
one time I got through they disconnected me after 40 minutes on hold.
The next day I was over an hour on hold and gave up.

I tried the WWW page and download some files that were supposed to help,
but did not.

Never again REVEAL for me.
