Sort of works, sort of does not.
On a standard, out of the box Red Hat 8.0 install, this card will be identified. However, the card type will be set incorrectly. Without correcting the setting, the card will not function.
Correcting the card type setting will cause the FM unit to function but be untunable. TV functions of this card still will not work.
This card will require massive configuraton by the user with no help docs before it is usable on a *nix system.

I own the 3DFX Voodoo TV/FM card for europe. It was on sale for £20 (20 pounds sterling ~ $30) brand new boxed because there wasn't any support for win2k. Quite a bargin really. The original bundled software worked perfectly on win98 although I never tried to capture anything on it at that time.
I upgraded to Win2k and then had a requirement to capture video. I hadn't installed the card in the win2k system as I knew the drivers didn't work on it. After much searching on the internet I found these superb drivers at http://btwincap.sourceforge.net/ which promised to work on any BT8x8 based card and under win2k. Well they work fine for VirtualDub and VirtualVCR for video capture. The TV Tuner side of things was a little different I tried Dscaler (version 3 something) but this would crash the system (win2k) and as Dscaler was a self contained, i.e. it didn't use the drivers, it uses it's own internal drivers. I tried a few other TV programs, ChrisTV being one of the better ones, but experienced audio problems (no audio)when switching channels. However the new alpha version of Dscaler (4.01 I think) works great, very quick channel switching, audio clear and strong. I would recommend this program for the TV Tuner side of things, I haven't tried to capture with it yet though.
All in the solutions for me so far were:
# Drivers from http://btwincap.sourceforge.net/ for Win2k
# VirtualVCR or VirtualDub for capture
# Dscaler version 4xx alpha for TV operation.
I'm sure the USA version of this card would operate much along these lines also. Hope this is useful for someone.

This card worked great for me for quite a while, my previous card being a generic card that didn't like to share IRQs. I've watched TV, listened to radio, and captured pretty decent avi's. This was all under Windows 98 though where 3dfx actually wrote drivers. When I upgraded to Windows XP, I was able to use some beta version Windows 2000 drivers for it, which were the last written by 3dfx before they went under. Now, though it is horribly unstable and crashes my machine all the time. I'd have given it a better rating if it weren't for this XP incompatiblity.

Drivers that came with the card do NOT work with any NT OS. I tried the avermedia drivers above and I could not get them to work for me. Thankfully there are experimental drivers available for this card on the 3dfx website for win2k Now the card works perfectly in WINXP pro!!!!! frame rates up to 720*480 for the new drivers

When i first heard of this card, i was really excited. A new on-die silicon tuner which could supposedly change channels lightning-fast, and the fact that it could do FM as well as realtime mpeg compression added to my enthusiasm about this card. I ordered it from buy.ca, somewhere in late october. after waiting almost two months i cancelled the order and ordered it from Electronics Boutique (which came in 3 days).
I've used an Avermedia TV/FM98, so i am pretty familiar with how to set up and use a tuner, but this card continually baffled me as which drivers to use, the wdm or the vfw. The FM tuner only worked with the vfw drivers, but the channels were extremely slow in changing.. the audio would even delay out a full 2 seconds after the video came in.. very strange.. i contacted 3dfx about this problem, but also around this time was when Nvidia bought of 3dfx's core assets so there was no response.
This *COULD* have been a great card, however, the drivers are shit. 3dfx told me that there will be no more updates to them either, since they have no more engineers.
Do not buy this card - there will be minimal tech support and NO driver updates.

good capture card, has software to capture to Mpeg1 or uncompressed avi, works great with WinVCR and PowerVCR, can make VCDs, it captures at 640x480 on a fast CPU, good value for the money

The card itself gets a 10, but every driver 3dfx has written for it is horrible, so the software is what brings it down a little.
I couldn't believe how much better it worked once I started using AverMedia's TV/FM98 drivers (with Win2k and Win98). Although the in-box drivers only support the usual standard resolutions (VirtualDub's extended resolution support didn't even work with those), I am able to capture directly to others like 352x240 with VirutalDub (although the drivers don't officially support it).
Additionally, the AverMedia drivers enable new color modes, like 24-bit (now you can noise-filter while capturing with VirtualDub).
The Ulead VideoStudio software that was packed in was good, but not the most intuitive in the world. The realtime mpeg capture is SOFTWARE BASED, and is a feature of UVS. I repeat, this is NOT a hardware MPEG card. Additionally, even on a P3-800eb w/ 256mb ram, the mpeg capture is a little choppy at 320x240.
All-in-all, I like the card very much. The video quality is excellent and once I found some good drivers, it's gotten the job done well every time.
... As an additional note of interest, this card works flawlessly with BeOS right out of the box, no tweaking necessary, no drivers.

I've had this card for about 3 months, and I'm a little disappointed! Picture quality is real clear, and channel acquisition is real fast, but the card lacks decent capture software. Only three different size capture setting (of which none is 352X240), and the quality of capture in Mpeg leaves something to be desired. The radio and TV inputs share the same coaxial input, and I've found it impossible to recieve radio siganls over cable, so I have to switch to an aerial cable. Even then signals are very easily dropped, at the faintest loss! Others have mentioned having a problem with the sound which I have as well when trying to capture video with any other software program other than the one that is used for viewing TV. There is simply no sound in any other program, but there is video, so you must use a VCR to get around this problem, and 3DFX tech support sucks!

a great card for the price! The software that comes with the card says it can capture 640x480, but needs a P3 / 600 system. I have the card installed in a P2/350 and records mpeg-1 320x240 just fine. Tried the higher resolutions, but of course turned out choppy video. After I convert the videos to VCD format, they look just fine. If the source material is really good, the digital videos look pretty good. If the source material is generated, the mpegs look quite shitty.
Card can capture uncompressed AVI, though I have not tested it.
Definately worth the $99 price tag!

* = Most capture cards can capture to this format using software but it usually requires a very fast computer, if it supports realtime capturing it uses the capture cards hardware and it doesn't require a very fast computer and you may get better quality but less options/settings than software capturing.
