Hello

I just got my Hauppauge WinTV GO model 190 tuner card. It works fine other then these little lines running pass the screen. I dont know if it's due to my video card (GForce3 TI 200 64 Meg DDR) or not. I have the latest drivers for my Vid card and the tuner card, but the little lines keep running pass. I have a 1 Ghz AMD with 1.2 gigs ram running win XP. I have a pic of what im talking aboit here.

Thank you

well if thats a shot from a TV then your problem is that TV's have a really bad refresh rate, they cannot display things as fast as a CRT monitor can, so the lines you are seeing is the TV's frams lagging behind what the computer is doing. This can also happen if you are playing a high FPS game on a low refresh rate monitor, you'll see at the top of the screen that the image will get little lines sorta like that.

basically, the video card is alot faster than the display.

its kinda hard to see from that pic what exactly the issue is. but if its not refresh rates, then i'd say that its either your cable has terrible reception, and when your computer picks this up and transferrs it to a digital format, you get some distortion. other than that it might be a bad cable, or a bad card.

Sometimes those tuners on those cards aren't very good. You can try running the signal through a vcr and then sending it to the s-video or composite in and see if that makes a difference.
