Ray, I think most if not all vcr don't have svideo output unless you have a SVHS vcr. Couldn't you just use the composite output? No composite inputs on the card?

Art, I have two VCR's with SVideo out [S-VHS]

The question is whether there are any Nvidia type cards with SVideo in. The ATI AIW cards do.

Hi Art. The actual answer is

that I am an email friend of Toni Hackler. She is the one doing video capture and making VCD's and later DVD's. I do none of this so I am a weak crutch for her to ask questions of, so sometimes I post in the forums as if it was me having a problem.

A number of times, I know that she would like to ask you for help. If you are intersted in helping her, maybe email her at her Moderator email address. [thackler@zdcommunity.net]

Toni has been using an ATI AIW 9700 Pro but was having problems. She now has a Dazzle 150 USB and a Pinnacle PCI capture card and Pinnacle Studio 9. So for a day or so she was using an Nvidia video card, but it doesn't have an input for SVideo. Nvidia was simply a possible option if the ATI problem doesn't get resolved.

It looks as if she has discovered the source of the ATI problems. It's software had taken over some of Windows MM associations. But she hasn't put the ATI card back in yet.

She is the one that has two VCR's with SVideo. [Svideo is supposedly a little better even when using a standard VHS video].

The forums are such a PITA to use that it might be best if she could get expert help via email. Then after the problem is solved she could make a single post in the forums describing the problem and the solutions.

The forums are a PITA when having to log on each time to use it, no search capability, have to open simply to see the resposes.. They also have slowed down very much for me [40K], so very annoying to use.
