I think what may be causing some of the issues with the tapes and such is my AIW card. Tried to cap some stuff tonight and the image was flickering and vert. scrolling.
After trying new cables, direct connect, different source, etd. I unplugged the purple input hub from the video card and the black screen in the AIW still jumped and showed occasional static.
TV Tuner caps are just fine. I think the Video input is shot.
What about the AIW 9600 as a replacement?
