In response to that user's thermal problem I was talking about last night with the ATI TV Wonder HD 600, picked up a $23.00 meat thermometer and hooked it up to my Pinnacle PCTV HD card so I can do some analysis of thermal properties under various conditions (Windows driver vs. Linux, capturing versus idle, digital versus analog capture).
It ain't pretty, but it gets the job done. Besides, I'm a vegetarian so it's not like I have alot of other uses for a thermometer branded to "Cook meat, poultry, & fish safely and accurately with perfect results!" I guess when I'm done I can give it to a coworker, as long as they don't have a problem with the taste of rosin flux. Yummy!
