I looked in this thread, including the FAQ, but I didn't see any comments explaining how someone can get video plugged in to the "s-video in" on the back of an e-home wonder tv tuner card, in a computer running MCE 2005, to be seen on the computer monitor.
I recently bought my neices and nephews a full-tilt, loaded to the max Dell XPS computer that has Media Center Edition 2005, and an e-home wonder card from ATI. The Dell website is absolutely useless, and I am not going to even think of dealing with their "Customer Service" flunkies in India again. Also, the ATI.com website is useless, and they refuse to respond to my e-mails asking for instructions. I e-mailed them that I was sorry I paid through the nose foe an e-home wonder tv tuner card, and an absolute top-of-the-line X850XT PE video card. ATI customer service does not exist!!!!!
The main thing I want to do is to play Playstation 2 games on the computer monitor, by plugging the s-video out jack from the PS2 into either the e-home wonders s-video in jack, or the X850XT PE video-in video-out (VIVO) s-video jack. I tried both with no success. (The comp uses a 1905fp, which does not have s-video jacks on it).
Also I would like to run home videos from an analog video camera out through the s-video jack into one of the two previously mentioned s-video in jacks, to watch the video on the computer monitor.
I live 75 miles from this computer, so I have only tried to get it going once. Does anybody here on AVS Forum have any instructions, tips, pieces of information, theories, or wild guesses as to what to do to accomplish these goals? After all this computer is supposed to handle MULTIMEDIA. Well I wish Dell, ATI, and all of these companies selling this stuff would tell us how to accomplish "multmedia" !!!!!
