I have windows XP pro SP2 with a RADEON X1600 card that supports VIVO

I plugged the VCR Video-out to the VIVO connector (composite). Installed 6.10 catalyst

But none of Windows Movie Maker, PowerDirector detects my capture card.

What's wrong? Any help here?

Does Windows Movie Maker and PowerDirector say that they support the X1600 VIVO?  The capture program must do this.  If they do, did you set the input to the correct port?

Do you know a program that does? Because the only source I have in either programs is the Audio-in of my audio card.

Try the free program VirtualDub to test it.  I think the commercial program Pinnacle Studio 10 should include it.

Ok, I'm wondering now if Ati RADEON X1600 even supports VIVO. It says AVIVO (wich I've learn that has nothing to do with VIVO).

And since ATI support and now AMD web site is a total piece of junk to get information.......... I'm still searching!

:(

The X1600 is NOT a capture card.    It's a video card only.   To capture your video you'll need a video capture card (or external capture device).  A few options:

-> If you want the best, get a Canopus.   Here are a few of their models:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?DEPA=0&type=&Description=canopus&Submit=ENE&N=0&Ntk=all&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

->  The Hauppauge PVR-150 is an excellent and inexpensive TV tuner/video capture card with built-in MPEG compression:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16815116625

->  A very nice external (USB v2.0) solution is the Plextor ConvertX:  http://www.buy.com/prod/Plextor_ConvertX_PX_M402U_Digital_Video_Converter_DivX/q/loc/101/10359127.html

->  An inexpensive external solution:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814144705  (There are also several better Dazzle models)
