    Hi, I just bought a LifeView TV Tuner + Capture card. It works just
    fine. I have a question with regards to the default setting for the

    The card has 3 inputs: TV antenna, S-Video input and Composite video
    input. Usually, I use the card for capturing the video, input from my
    VCR through the Composite video input, and I use Pinnacle Studio to
    capture the video and save to my harddisk.

    The problem i have is, everytime I power up my PC, I need to set the
    "Video Source" to "Composite Video" in Pinnacle before I can start
    capturing the video from VCR. It always defaults to "TV Tuner".

    Does any knows how do I change the default setting for Video Source,
    perhaps in the registry (I am using WinXP), so that I dont have to set
    the "video source" everytime I want to capture video from my VCR?

    Really appreciate some help. Thank you.
