    Alex,

    There is a PAL version of the ATI TV Wonder. It does not work with PAL-M and
    PAL-N, as used in South America. There is also a TV Wonder VE. I did not lok
    at that. I did not spend a lot of time at www.atitech.com , but think the
    PAL and NTSC cards are physically separate cards. Somebody else might make a
    combo card. A PAL card would be something you would not find in a local
    store, but I think you can order directly from ATI.

    Have a look at Haupppauge
    http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/products/data_350.html
    for example, give them a ring and ask if that 350 model wil lrecord PAL.
    Because it is also available here as USB version I think.
    Expensive though (199$), there are others.

    The Brooktree 848A/878 based cards do PAL, NTSC and SECAM with a single
    crystal, I think.

    There is no cost to the card manufacturer to make these multi standard -
    except for the tuner.

    Probably not even that, My ASUS does any standard, you can just select it
    in the menu.
    This is probably so they do not have to make 2 versions.
    It auto-detects too I think.
    Any Philips chip you can buy does NTSC and PAL it seems.

    Jan,
    This is an older HI8 camcorder. An S connector is the best I can do. At
    least if I get the TV Wonder, I can also watch live TV, or record it
    digitally. I have a couple of other projects. So, this is not immediate, but
    everything should work with the ATI 9600 video card. I was figuring on 640 x
    480, since that is idealized NTSC (The 640 part is wishful thinking).

    Thomas,
    I did not see these, but a search on www.cdw.com on "video capture" or "TV
    capture" brought up external USB units by ADF and ADAPTEC that claimed NTSC,
    PAL, and SECAM. Price range was about $90 up.

    Depending on how they do it, they may need a different crystal for PAL. I
    seem to recall their color subcarrier frequency is around 4 MHz, instead of
    ~3.58. At any rate, these crystals are dirt cheap.
