Thanks to those that wrote to me about the TV-500.

I also found the mailing list archives for July, which referred to the
TV-500's problems. I returned it (unopened) and ordered a Captivator
from Tiger Direct based on the info posted yesterday shortly after my
note (I don't need the TV capability anyway).

The TV-500 seems to be a pretty-common card in the retail chains, I
wonder if it's worth requesting "negative image" fix in the next
release of CUSM for this and other cards that haven't quite got it
right... as I've noticed on some other cards, the vendors aren't
always aware of CUSM (but on the other hand, should we be rewarding
incompetence ?)

Doug, who will probably buy a Win-Quickcam anyway because it's smaller
than his camcorder....
