Thats not an All-in-Wonder card! Sounds like a standard ATI X1800XT video card to me. Is it dual slot? You'd be right as the AVIVO plugs don't carry audio for some reason. Cable:...

Likely the QuickTime video demos that came with a friend's circa 1992 Macintosh Performa 600. Back then, due to I/O and storage limitations, the best you'd get is QCIF resolution, a whopping 176x144...

Plugged it in yesterday only to emit a big POP with a flash inside. Fuse didn't blow and there is no obvious part that exploded based on a quick inspection. Oh well, threw it back in the box to deal...

The JVC OSD is 240p, just like 1980s/90s video game consoles. Lots of capture cards either flat out won't capture it, or treat it as interlaced leading to weird artifacts.
