I have an old Sony VAIO VGN-A417S 'laptop' with an A/V Docking Station VGP-PRAV2 (i think that is a European only model). I bought it 16 years ago and not used it much in recent years, but since I started learning about video capture I have found it to be a capable machine. Still running Windows XP SP2 and ithe original bundled software plus VirtualDub
+ Filters from here.
The Docking Station has inputs and outputs for S-Video, composite video and stereo audio.
The graphics card is an ATi Mobility Radeon X600.
Can anyone help identify what capture device Sony used in the docking station? Could it be an ATI model?
Apparently it has a hardware MPEG Encoder for the built-in analog TV Tuner (no longer in use of course), but I cannot find any information about the actual capture hardware specs.
Thank you for any help.
