Thank you for the input.  This sounds slightly encouraging.  I tried an ISA 
card a couple years ago but it did not have a composite port and software 
was not available from the defunct company.

The card that the wife got me is an older one.  An ATI-TV Wonder to be 
specific.  So once I find/make a break in the honey-do list and find/make a 
break in schoolwork I will pick a computer to try it out in.  The idea of 
getting a CoCo on-line with out needing the space for another monitor is 
very attractive seeing as there are 7 PCs on my desk now.  All connected to 
one keyboard, monitor and mouse set with one port in reserve for "transient"
