Anybody recognize this DVR card pulled from a dead computer?

http://www.yumabassman.com/images/DVR.jpg

Its 16 channels.  The computer is dead with multiple issues.  Thought I  
would drop the card in another computer if I can figure out what software to  
run with it.

Lacking more info, you'll have to spend several hours scrolling thru
search results for "PMC video capture card".

I had to do that several years ago for a 4 channel capture card. Finally
found a picture of one very close, went to the Taiwan website and
downloaded a driver that (mostly) worked.

Ended up trashing the card and repurposing the computer.

Bob,

Looks like there are a lot of similar cards out there when searching Google
 Images for "techwell tw2804 16 channel dvr card" or similar searches, but  
none that I found that actually look the same.  However, any of the web sea
rch results seem to point to either ebay or the sort of companies you get b
roken-english spam from... "DVr for only $8 you buy"

I figured the "4" in "TW2804" had something to do with 4 channels, so they  
put 4 chips in to make a 16 channel DVR card.

I saw in one post that Techwell is now called Intersil... http://www.inters
il.com/en/parametricsearch.html#g=audiovideo&sg=video-products-from-tec
hwell

When I was still building PC-based DVR's (I delusionally got into this work
 to get away from things like building computers), I would leave all the CD
's inside the case, taped to the bottom below the motherboard.  This made i
t very easy to format the drive and start over if needed.  If only everyone
 did this.

Either way, I would just throw it out.  Why have a one-off DVR out there?

If the hard drive hasn't failed then you could put that in another PC and
either identify the DVR software program or in most cases that I have seen  
the
installation software for the DVR application is located somewhere on the
drive.

I don't recognize it.  What I would do is slap it in a working computer
and let plug & pray do it's thing.  You can get a PCI device number and
look it up in the PCI database to get the manufacturer & part #.  That
should lead you to a software package.
