Video problems playing TV over DC10plus card

    All I want to do is be able to watch video comin in over my AV
    connection on my PInnacle DC10+ card on my monitor at a decent size.

    The studio 8 software that came with the card will only show the video
    in a tiny preview window unless I record it to my harddrive and then
    play that which seems a little pointless.

    I have found a couple of free apps that will supposedly let me see
    watch the video stream fullcrteen or at some other resolutions
    windowed on my desktop.

    The video displays fine in a window at resolutions up to about 320x240
    but as soon as I try it full screen or at 640x480 or bigger I see
    0.5secs of motion the it freezes for 0.5secs then moves, then freezes
    ad infinitum.

    I am assuming that as it displays the video fine at small resolution
    it is being decoded ok so the issue must be with the display. I have a
    Leadtek branded GeForce 2 Ultra with the latest drivers.

    Any one have any ideas as to what might be causing the problem?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Try AMcap.
    I sometimes have to start my normal capture program, (Movie Mill)
    to initialize the capture card, then exit that and start AMcap. It works
    great if you want to have a "borderless" display box that you can make
    any size, have always on top-or not (F12), go full screen and back, and
    take stills.

    [Forgot whose post clued me into this little gem.]
