I know it's not a useful recommendation, but I hope I can save your
daughter some trouble. Avoid ATI's TV Wonder line of cards. They have
pitiful Windows support, despite them working great under Linux. I've
heard (I don't own one) that their AIW line of cards however, have
excellent Windows support, many great features, and excellent picture
A college student who thought picking up a TV Wonder instead of a TV for
his dorm room was a great idea. ;.;

My daughter is in the USAf stationed in Japan, she haa an athlon XP
3200/512 MB with ATI video and Viewsonic 15" lcd monitor.
She runs XP pro.
She has a very limited personal storage space and does not have
physical room for a TV set.
What I want to do is buy her a decent video capture card and a VCR.
Then she can watch TV/Video tapes on her computer.
As well as run her video camera into it (VHS) - no firewire or usb on
She already has a DVD drive and CDRW on her system.
I do not run XP and want to test the hardware and maybe duplicate it on
my system before I ship it to her.
What video capture card would you recommend?
