looking for older ati tv tuner software

I have tried hunting sites from here to mac repository and pure mac and even ati's archived pages. so far i have not been able to find what i am looking for. maybe someone here can show me the way.

i am looking for the mac software for the ATI TV Wonder 650 USB for Mac, preferably the tvPORTAL app.

I am wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction.

Is it this beast? https://www.newegg.com/diamond-tvw650mac-for-mac/p/N82E16815306008

I feel with you, so many things already lost…
Trying to run the device with a Windows box is likely not an option for you.

I don't have the tvPORTAL app, but I do have the driver software for the Remote Wonder, both the older Mac OS 9 version and the updated version for OS X. Would this help you at all?

It used to be available on the ATi website; I'll try to pull it out of my archives, and failing that, from archive.org. Then I'll stick it up on here Smile

Hmm... https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/tv-tuners/ati-remote-wonder-seri... -- they've got the TV stuff too, but only back as far as 10.2. This leads me to wonder if my faulty memory was remembering having the OS 9 version when I only ever had the 10.2 version. When I next get access to my archives, I'll check.

when i tried pulling the mac driver, it just hung on the "choose os version". i couldn't get past that. i am checking the link you posted. i am needing the osx driver, not the classic one

Hmm; if you're looking for that particular app, I know I don't have it. Oddly, it only ever appears to have been distributed on DVD, not online.

The eyeTV app supports older models of the ATi TV tuners, but doesn't appear to have picked up support for that particular model. Maybe they do now though?

Good luck in your search!
