Mike - When in doubt, go for the easy way - I did, it worked! Swapped the cabling, TSST is now slave. Checked in Nero - "DMA On"; checked in device driver and TSST is now set to Ultra DMA2; interestingly the std. CD-ROM, now the Master was set to Ultra DMA 2 as well. So-o-o-o, no monkeying with the Registry, there is a God in heaven.
This brings me back to TimC if he's still around. This all began with my desire to put a TV Tuner in. Now that the speed issue on burning is resolved, I'm back to card selection. Tim, you suggested a card w/hardware coding/decoding and I had researched this considerably. Bottom line was that I had reduced my selections down to just three cards - Hauppauge (150,250,500), ATI TVWonder Elite or Leadtek2000 (your card). Thing is I read a lot of user reviews on all 3 and read more negatives relative to Leadtek, particularly graininess. Fact is I don't always believe everything I read, so let me ask you - have you experienced any shortcomings with the card or its associated software, drivers or support? My reading on Hauppauge cards seemed to indicate that most come w/a remote and this is only functional w/MCE which I don't use (I'm XP) thus I would be paying for something I'm not going to use and further I'm not sure how well the card functions in absence of remote use. Cut to the chase is that I've pretty much decided, subject to input to the contrary, to go with the ATI Elite which also comes with a remote but is not dedicated to MCE and is in fact dedicated to XP. A plus benefit I think might be that fact that my graphics card is also ATI and I have much of the software associated with the card already installed (Catalyst, Splendid), further I use Cyberlink for my DVD decding software and this is the same manufacturer that is shipped w/ATI for timeshifting, etc. How about sharing your thoughts with me.
