'Failure to Initialize Video' (ATI MMC) using Radeon 9600XT

    I bought the Asus Radeon 9600XT to transfer some analog footage but so
    far have been unable to successfully do so. I am trying to do this
    using ATI's Multimedia Center 9.0 but when I launch the TV app to
    capture video, it keeps telling me that TV was unable to initialize
    the video. It then prompts me to run a Test. The test passes but
    yields one warning about sound card clock instability. However, I
    doubt this would have anything to do with the Failure to Initialize
    Video message. I also tried capturing directly in Premiere but it
    doesnt even detect my capture card. It simply detects the Firewire on
    my motherboard. Asus ships the card with Digital VCR but I find the
    options quite limited and would much prefer to use a different app to
    capture. Any recommendations on resolving this issue?

    Thank you,

    Believe it or not, I'm doing great captures from my
    oldie Hauppauge WinTV pci card in the same computer
    ( AMD 2000+ ) with an ATI Raedeon 9000 Pro.
    Very few dropouts, and video speed appears to be
    good ?? I can capture as mpg instead of AVI too.
    I can also capture cable TV with no problems. Best
    of all, the whole combo ( $69 for the ATI, and I paid
    about $45 for the WinTV maybe 5 years ago ). And
    Hauppauge still writes upgrade drivers for the card.
    Now THAT is tech support! Go talk to Hauppauge.

    Yupper, that's the way I'm going next time. To hell with this Video-In bs
    ATI puts you thru.

    I'm capturing dvd-compliant mpg2 video flawlessly with no dropped
    frames. The only time I get the message about not being able to
    initialize the video is when I start the TV before shutting down wmp
    or windvd. Even just after I shut them down I have to wait a few
    seconds before starting ati's tv.
    Try it after a boot and see what happens. Check your device manager
    and see if there's any problems.
