can't switch to ati capture driver as primary tv capture source in mmc 8.7

Discussion in 'ATI' started by manfred klotz, Nov 30, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    the only thing i want to do is to watch tv with the mmc!!
    following problem:
    in tv configutation i select "ati WDM Rage Theater Video" as primary
    capture source - (which is installed and shown there correctly) but
    when i want to watch TV with mmc via composite-input i get only a blue
    window - when i go back to the configuration menu again - the primary
    source always stays at hauppauge capture driver. (i have also
    installed a Hauppauge WinTV pci card)
    OK - the apparent thing to do is to uninstall the hauppauge card and
    all drivers and software - which i did - but then mmc does not start
    at all and i get this "TV Player Failed to Initialize the Video"
    So it seems i need the hauppauge card to get mmc started but with the
    hauppauge card i can't use ati as primary capture source!
    schizophrenic isn't it!
    So how can i make mmc to use only ati WDM Drivers as primary source?
    i want to uninstall the hauppauge card completely and only use the ati
    card - but untill now i need it for watching TV.
    With other capture applications (e.g.virtualdub) i can use the ati wdm
    capture drivers with no problems. i did all the installation stuff
    according to the infos.
    so untill now the only way to avoid the problem is: to use WinTV as TV
    viewer and virtualdub with ati capture drivers to capture video - but
    then in always have to change the composite input cable - from the
    hauppauge card to the ati card.
    please help
