Helpp! PPProblems with Hauppauge WinTV card and XP

  1. Apologies if the questions have been asked before but I've searched in
    Google and not found the answer. I should also say I'm a novice to digital
    video editing so... Be Gentle With Me!

    My setup is as follows
    Asus A7V8X-X mboard
    Athlon 2400
    512 Mb RAM
    120GB hard disk
    Hauppage WinTV capture card
    Dazzle DVC80 external USB capture box
    Windows XP Professional
    MyDVD video editing program

    My problem is this - I can successfully capture from the Dazzle box using
    MyDVD but the quality is inferior to what I've previously had from the WinTV
    card on other operating systems. However when I switch to the WinTV card,
    MyDVD comes back with the message: "Cannot connect to the selected video
    device. Make sure the device is connected properly and no other capture
    devices are running" - which I have done and the set up is correct. I can
    capture direct to disk with the Hauppauge supplied software.

    So is it just MyDVD or is it the motherboard or Windows or what. All help
    greatly appreciated.
