A PCI interface chipset initially intended as Multimedia interface for analog Audio and Video. Has been raped to pack MPEG2 TS into the video lines. Works surprisingly well in most setups, only a few have problems with high data loss. Superceeded by the SAA7134 which has a digital stream interface.

Used e.g. by the old Siemens DVB cards, most Technotrend PCI cards, the KNC1 DVB cards.
