ok so im back once again and here's what's going on...
got myself some THICK composite a/v cables AND nerovision express v188.8.131.52.
It seems to be woking properly (no prob. finding my cap. card and recording) but the issue now is this: when im watching a VCR stream OR just watching TV through nerovision, the audio will loose sync with the video within 30 secs or so, (that doesnt really bother me too much though, because when i start capturing video, everything sync's up ok) the other problem is that when i go to watch what i've captured, the video is "line-y" that is to say that whenever there's motion in the video, mostly people or cars moving about, the outline of that object has very minute lines all around it's border.
believe it or not, i used ATI's "TV" capture software for a comparison test, and found that it's a bit clearer than nero's s/w. but that could just be ATI's "videosoap" filters doing their job.
ok now onto the tech. side of things...
im capturing video using MPEG-2 with the aspect ratio of 4:3. I tried using AVI but however i dont know what kind of compression to use for AVI so i end up getting a HUGE 9 GIG file when im finished. any suggestions on that?
ok i guess thats enough for one post. please answer what you can, since i'll be screwing around with this for the next few hours and periodically checking the forum for some help.
