My OS is Win 98SE.
I just now replaced my old PCI AIW video card with an AGP ATI Radeon 32MB DDR LE. Doing so, I decided to rearrange most of my PCI cards for a couple of reasons, including the way in which my ASUS MB shares IRQ's among PCI slots. I also attempted to alternate large, heat-producing boards with smaller low-heat cards (eg, network card).
I don't know yet whether this has reduced the hiccups (simultaneous audio/video) associated with recording - what I DO see is that the aspect ratio of the OTA HiPix image is now messed up. What was previously 4:3 and centered on my monitor is now more like 3:3 - offset to the left side of the screen.
Up to this point, I have had only my desktop XGA monitor hooked up using the HiPix loopback cable. I have not made changes to the HiPix setup since installing the Radeon card. I am now wondering:
1. Should I un-install and re-install the HiPix software?
2. Should I perform the registry tweaks discussed in the Radeon Guide?
3. Do I need to install Powerstrip?
I eventually intend to output to an XGA projector in addition to the computer monitor, but for the moment I'd like to at least regain the proper aspect ratio (not to mention record without stuttering).
