    Very interesting - but I have no idea what that card is. Seems to be quite an interesting combo card of some sort. Have you tried putting it in a machine to see if Windows can tell you what it is?

    Sure I plugged it in, but it didn't give me allot of usefull information.
    Just that it was a "Multimediacontroller"

    Thx for the very fast Reply

    It might be a Video acquisition card of some sort. The brand coud turn out to be hard to find though.:dead:

    Searching for the "BPC1820B" string on google didn't find anything either. Does the person who gave it to you know what it is ?

    Yeah - was thinking about it and I think it's some sort of video encoder card also.

    The person who I got it from doesn't know what it is eighter and I don't want to know where he got it from.

    I would definitally want to know what this card can do and if its worth keeping. Else it's going in the trash.

    PS: There was something on the back,
    EK3696
    EK 1 94V-0
    Doesn't say anything usefull:eek:

    Greets Crazy,

    My best shot: an ISDN video-conference card

    You can always keep it if you intend to open up a museum of computer parts.:D

    I have a few obsolete cards that I keep just for the heck of it.:)

    Hi Mcdew

    I picked up one of these cards at a computer show and was supprised at how little I can find out about it. Has anyone found a decent driver for this thing, or did I waste a buck? I was hoping I could use it to play TV on my screen as I worked. Any help?
