So, I've connected my ATI All In Wonder X800XL PCIe to the main board -- I've downloaded hopefully all necessary drivers including WDM -- as I am not showing any Unknown Drivers in my list.. But when I connect the ATI Purple Input to the I/O cable which plugs into the back of the card -- my monitor (which is plugged into the DVI on the back of the card) does not display anything. Is this normal -- do I need the Black Output cable to do any Video Capture? I'm stumped..

Important Things To Note: I am using the older version of the Purple ATI Input Cable -- not the "domino cable"
Also, the I/O cable that I am using does not have the VGA Out -- it has Purple Input // Black Output // TV // FM.

"Does not display anything" = your monitor shows black instead of your PC Desktop?

I'm betting you have the wrong "biscuit" style connector for your card.

If your card has RF (coax) connectors (male for NTSC, female for PAL I think) then you don't want the connector that has 2 more of them on it. You want the one with the VGA connector and the 2 mini-DIN.

Here's a discussion of the opposite problem:


Note also the additional Catalyst/MMC software available in that thread which seems to work for the X600. I will be trying this with my X1800XL but your X800XL might be more amenable.

Ebay options for the cable (I believe you need) here:




There may other sources, possibly for just the cable you need.
