Hello everyone - I have around 50 tapes of family video that I'm trying to convert from vhs (SP) and vhs-c; I bought a JVC SR-388e (only has a TBC, as far as I can tell the filters "off", "dub", and "enhanced" don't perform any noise reduction) and an HR-S7700 (which works well, only features missing are dynamic drum and video stabiliser) to play the tapes with, and a hauppauge HVR-1300 to capture them (though wintv detects it as a PVR-250).
The results weren't bad, with the audio being in sync and the rough beginnings and ends of each video clip not throwing the card off, but I thought I'd try an ATI AIW to see if I could get the video to look better (perhaps capturing in AVI and editing). I found an ATI X800 AIW pci-e card on ebay
, so for a few pounds I thought it was worth trying out, even though it didn't have it's original disk. Unfortunately, having freshly reformatted my pc with an XP SP2 disk, the 10.2 catalyst installer which I downloaded on this site (I also found it on amd's site) gave me this message:
Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system.
Setup will now exit."
I tried installing the driver manually, as I had found a few references to this on the internet, by going into device manager and and "updating" the driver (having to guess "X800GT" as my card after showing windows where the ati driver file was located), which did get the card to detect my monitors native resolution; before it gave me the option to choose much higher resolutions. I followed this up with a manual install of catalyst, which worked once I had downloaded and installed .net framework 2. The next step according to the directions on the thread on this site was to install the WDM software, which appeared to work without a problem, but when I restarted the pc, the newly appeared "ATI T200 Unified AVStream Driver" in device manager was highlighted as having a problem. Regardless, I tried installing MMC 9.08 (as far as I could tell, this or 9.09 is what the card shipped with), but when I performed a check with the built in utility, it said that it could not detect a soundcard (correct, I haven't installed the driver for it yet) or a capture driver (it did find the graphics driver at least). This is the point I have reached so far, and would be grateful for any advice on how to proceed.
