Downloaded and will try tonight. Should this have any affect upon the device not being listed in Device Manager? I was assuming that this absence was causing the problems with the other capture programs.

I've tried windvr and don't like the results personally - but give it a try yourself. My personal preference is VirtualVCR - an excellent freeware app, get it from www.digtv.ws . This program allows you to capture to any avi codec installed on your pc and has some specific code to handle audio sync - make sure you tick 'Resample audio dynamically' in preferences although this is explained in the website help section.

Kwag quite rightly said captuing to huffyuv gives best overall quality. However, this gives you huge filesizes. I have found that using the Picvideo MJPEG on setting 18 or 19 gives excellent results when encoded using tmpeg using the PixieDust avisynth filter. The filesize savings are enormous.

If you have any quetions feel free to ask, i primarily use KDVD to encode tv captures made this way and some times the results look just like the tv broadcast. I usually fit about 4-6 hours widescreen capture to one dvd.

Could you post a step-by-step for capturing tv cable with WINTVGO card to MPEG2 with VirtualVCR? This is my first try.
Got the drivers downloaded and finally installed. Everything appears to be working well. I see you use PICVideo MJPEG for video. How should I handle audio?

Also, what settings should I use on the video settings screen?
