I've read and attempted Pinnacle's proposed solution listed in their KB, but it didn't work. In addition to not being able to open the generated AVI file (in Studio or WMP), clips captured in other formats such as MPEG display a bunch of garbage in the player, either A/V static or what appears to be an incomplete still image.
Among my futile attempts to resolve the problem(s), I've reinstalled DirectX 9. I've also done some extensive digging and it doesn't appear my problem is very common. Hoping someone has a solution. Thanks!
