Important Safety Instructions
Note: This product is for use only with compatible UL-listed personal computers
that have installation instructions detailing user installation of this class of product.
Read all instructions before beginning installation.
All safety and installation instructions should be read before the product is installed or
operated.
Retain all instructions.
Safety, installation, and operating instructions should be retained for future reference.
Heed all warnings.
All warnings regarding the product and its operating instructions should be adhered to.
Use appropriate grounding.
Caution:
For continued protection against the risk of electric shock and fire, install this accessory
only in products equipped with a three-wire grounding plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin. A three-pin plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This
is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the desired outlet, contact an
electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not remove the grounding pin of a threepin plug.
Attach product securely.
All product-securing screws or fasteners should be completely tightened in order to
provide continuous bonding between the product and the PC chassis, as appropriate.
For cards with TV tuners:
• Ground outdoor antenna appropriately.
Caution:
Since an outdoor antenna or cable system may be connected to the product, be sure
that the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
the antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antennadischarge unit, connection of grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
• Unplug system during storms or prolonged disuse.
Caution:
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product
from power-line surges.
• Install outdoor antenna system away from power lines.
Warning:
When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep
from touching such power lines or circuits, as contact with them may be fatal.

ATI TV Wonder™ 650
P/N 117-70408-10
iv
Caution:
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power
lines or other light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits.
Note to CATV System Installer
This reminder is provided to call the CATV systems installer’s attention to Section 820-40
of the NEC, which provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies
that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building as close
to the point of cable entry as is practical.

Troubleshooting
Video is unstable or only black and white.
• Check that you are using the correct broadcast standard format.
• Check the quality of the incoming TV signal on another receiver.
• Connect your tuner directly to the cable TV or antenna source. Splitters can
degrade the signal.
No video or audio.
• Check that the speakers are connected and turned on.
• Check that your system's sound device is working properly (Control Panel ▷
Sounds and Audio Devices).
• Make sure the monitor is plugged in, turned on, and connected to the
computer.
• Make sure the cable or antenna is connected.
• Check that all connectors are securely plugged in to the correct jacks.
• Check that the tuner is securely connected.
Recording stops unexpectedly.
• Make you have sufficient disk space to accommodate the recording.
• Make sure you are recording to the correct hard disk. Check your software
manual for instructions on determining the target drive and folder for your
recordings.
• The maximum file size for the FAT32 file system is 4 gigabytes.
• Disable screen savers while recording.
• Disable Power Management while recording.
Dropped frames during recording.
Dropped frames during video recording indicates that some part of the system is
not fast enough to keep up with the recording. Recording video is a very
demanding task for even the most powerful system.
• Defragment your hard drive.
• A large, dedicated disk is recommended if you plan to do a lot of video
recording.
• Close all other running tasks, including those in the System Tray (clock,
popup reminders, virus scanners, etc.)
Reference
10
• Close and exit from any Task Scheduler.
• Do not log on to your network.
• Do not connect new devices while recording.
• Do not open or close CD or DVD trays while recording.
• Do not move the mouse while recording.
Poor TV reception.
• If you use an indoor antenna, you will get the best results with an amplified
model. To avoid interference, place the antenna as far away from the PC
monitor as possible.
• Splitting the cable or antenna input can reduce signal quality. For the best
reception, connect the cable or antenna directly to your tuner.
