  • ATI TV Wonder 650 Combo PCI Express card
  • Driver CD
  • ATI Theater Video remote control
  • FM Radio antenna
  • AMD LIVE! Entertainment Suite CD
  • Catalyst Media Center
  • Composite to S-Video adapter
  • Remote Receiver

One thing to note is that the card ATI sent to us was a reference card and not the retail package one would expect from Visiontek or Diamond. Comparing the package ATI sent me with the retail package from Diamond's TV Wonder 650 Combo PCI Express cards or Visiontek's card's bundle I notice that it is exactly the same.

ATI sent a new remote control with the TV Wonder 650 Combo PCI Express card. The remote is rounded in appearance with the Power button on the top of the remote control. Under the Power button are the standard 10 numeric keys with a button for Last, Home, Search and Camera. There are four directional keys with a OK button on the bottom of that. Volume, Channel and Mute buttons are below the four function keys and playback buttons are below those buttons.

The rest of the bundle is familiar to anyone who has used a TV Wonder or All In Wonder card before. There is a FM Cable to allow playback of FM Radio on the card, a Remote receiver which is required to use the remote control, an audio adapter, and ATI's trademarked AMD LIVE! Entertainment Suite. The Driver CD contains Catalyst Media Center which acts as a Control panel for the TV Wonder 650 Combo PCI Express card much like the Catalyst Control Center does for their video cards.
