Are there any Video-In Issues related to ATI AIW Radeon 9600 ?

    When I try several sources :

    VCR Stereo, Analog in via the purple cable
    on sterso vcrs I get a lot of video flutter at
    the top of the screen.

    When I hooked up a mono 4 head vcr the harsh
    video flutter was gone yet I could tell it wanted
    to come up.

    These same vcrs when I put them with a normal tv set
    playing the same vhs's I dont see that distortion.

    Whats gives ?

    In the TV setup, under Display, check the Crop Video box to remove the
    flutter from displaying.

    Yeah I know how to crop. The problem is. it is too much flutter.

    The problem is with 720x480 is that I would have to crop 44 lines.

    When I play the same vhs tape through a more expensive unit then the
    video flutter gets even worse.

    I loaded the file in to virtual dub to count the bad lines. Just in
    case some one was curious. Oh the feed is interlaced and at 29.97.

  4. I have a similar problem with my AIW 9600XT playing back VHS tapes for analog
    capture. I did not see this with my older AIW 7500. According to folks on the Rage3D
    board, this is a problem with the Rage Theater 200 chip and its Macrovision detection.
    The AIW detects Macrovision even on nonencoded tapes. Simply speaking, their
    drivers are buggy POS. ATI seems unwilling AND unable to fix this issue. the only
    solution is to get a Sima CT-2 Video Stabilizer for $50+ which removes Macrovision's
    signalling. The problem with this is that you can get an AverTV or other TV card for $50
    that does not have this problem which renders your AIW rather useless. So far, I
    haven't come up with a solution to this mess.

    Well I placed an order and my piggy bank is in hock for a few months
    because of the purchase.

    I hope this helps because I am really getting sick of all this.

    I heard of macrovision drivers that some say to remove but....

    ATI needs to listen to the people that are spending the money
    else some of us will begin to go elsewhere........

    Asking us to buy the next version of this or that for 300 bucks
    etc they are just plain insane...............
