View Full Version : geforce4 ti4200 + video capture??

20-09-2003, 05:10 PM
Ive got a geforce4 ti4200, and want to capture video form tv. Can I use the s-video plug on the card?
it is susposed to be video in/out, but when I try to capture video (using virtual dub) I get an error saying 'no video driver'. I can use it fine for PC to TV.
Should I be able to use this to capture video, or would I have to get a video capture card?

If I was to get a Tv capture card it wold be sown to these.

Winfast TV/FM Tuner (TV2000XP Deluxe) PCI Internal Capture Card with Remote Control $130
TV Execl TV PCI Internal Tuner PV-BT878P+ With Remote Control $75
or generic Dick Smith card for $99

Does anyone have any experience with these cards, or could recommend another one?

My GF4 MX460 Vi/Vo card came with the software drivers, and the s-video plug to s-video in, s-video out and RCA in, RCA out.

Captures video just fine using the software that was bundled

If you are using the detonator drivers you will need to install the Nvidia WDM drivers which are available from their website at:

I would suggest you use the latest detonators as well though I don't know if the WDM drivers have any dependancies on this however.
