Angry ATI TV Wonder card problems...

sponsored links

i have just become interested in authoring vcds from vhs. i have a standard hp pavillion from the factory bought 4 months ago with 1 gig processor.

i bought an ati tv wonder pci card last week to capture my vhs tapes, but i cannot get sound from the vcr, and the picture is not even distinguishable. the installation of card worked fine, drivers were accepted and the devices show as working properly. i have tried to hook the vcr up with the standard wire that you screw into the back, and through the supplied cable for video/audio in/out. the software also will not recognize any channels when i try to set up the tv card with my antenna.

i have a soundblaster 5.1 xgamer soundcard and i don't believe that it is the problem. i am running win 2000 pro. is there another capture software suite i may have better luck with, or do i need an upgrade in video card? (i have no standalone card now, just what came factory from hp.)

i have checked out the faqs, but no success, anyone else had similar problems?
if not, what hardware do you use, how is it connected? is the ati wonder card any good for just the low level capturing i intend to use it for or do i need to buy something else?

Are you sure you have all your wire or cable installation correct? I have my ALl In Wonder and the first time i did that (set VCR as source and capture it to my pc), it worked fine.

On the manual, there is an actual picture of how it shoudl look like. The sound, one of the cable you will plugged in the card that comes with the box, one small cable from it will go to the soundcard.

I havent had any problems with mine, captured many VHS tapes.

Also, when i hooked up my cable to ATI card, it recognizes all the channels that my tv can see.

be sure video accelleration is set to FULL. It only works that way.
