Well, this doesn't necessarily mean that it IS compatible, but it COULD be,
or a driver could probably be written for it. Check out what it says on the
90b1 "Capture Cards" page:

ATI has donated a card to Cornell, and Steve will be working on a driver for
their TV Tuner card soon. Any of you that have a capture card that WON'T
work with CU should email the manufacturer and try to convince them to
donate a card to Cornell. Talk DOLLARS to them...that's what these people
seem to understand the best. If enough of you email them at the same time,
they might realize how much it could mean in SALES to donate, and how many
happy customers they would have :)
