Also included is an assortment of cables including an FM radio antenna, videocard power cord (has to be used), and a S-Video and composite video cable. Whatever you are going to patching in or out of this card, you should be covered.
Also included is this handle I/O dongle that handle all the multimedia connections to and from the card. I will go into more detail about this particular connection in the product walkthrough section.
Outside of the standard monitor connections you have three I/O blocks that connect to the I/O dongle. Again, I will be covering this in more detail in the upcoming sections.
Yes, this package comes with the ever so popular Remote Wonder 2. I won't be covering this included product in detail seeing we have reviewed this product separately in the past HERE. Please feel free to visit that separate review if you have any pressing questions on this handy product.
And at last we have the powerful and feature-filled All in Wonder X800XT AGP videocard. First thing you will notice about this card is its different color when compared to its' green and red past predecessors. Nice to see a change from the norm. Although some people will be scoffing at the color thinking "who cares!", but appearance is still becoming more important deciding factor when buying a product. Nice to see a product that looks as high end as it actually is.
