S. video input using an NVIDIA video card

Posted on 2009-04-22

I have an NVIDIA G. force 9800 display adapter in my computer. It has an S video Port. I would like to be able to connect it to my receiver so that I can use the setup screen on my projector which is across the room. It would take another long cable to reach from my receiver directly to the projector. Is there a way that I can input video from my Marantz 9200 receiver through my video card to my projector? If so what drivers will I need?

    The s-video port is an output-only port, not a capture port.  You don't need a special driver to use it for output, if that's what you want - its just another display.  Your card may only support two output ports at a time, so check the nView application.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, a video capture card, such as a Hauppauge HVR-2250  You can also get cheaper cards, since you only are capturing s-video, but they are somewhat rare in this age of high-def.
