Found this card - Simple Tech SimpleVision MPEG-1 Multimedia PCMCIA Card. There is no info about this card online. I'm wondering if it's a rebranded version of above mentioned cards? It's for sale on ebay right now, BTW.
Interesting find, you're right, no mention of it on the
archived simpletech.com website.
The company sold a lot rebranded hardware, must be the case for that mpeg1 card too.

Interesting the idea of having that MPEG2 decoder card on a 386 with the PCMCIA to ISA card adapter. Would it works?
Not only you would need a ZV port, as Bondi wrote, unless you use the tv out of the card only, it might work.
But you'd still need Win9x running the drivers and software, plus you'd need a fast enough hdd or optical drive for the mpeg2 data transfer, so on a 386, not sure you can, or going scsi all the way perhaps.
Feel free to try though!
