Thread: Can I be the only one with this ATI AIW 9800 Pro 128 problem

    I have been using the ATI AIW 9800 Pro 128 for two months and have captured hours of video and burned to DVD.

    Last week I pluged the video jack into the purple input like I have done 100 times before and I got this Vvvvvooooopppppp sound and the screen went black.

    I rebooted and there was no video for the composite or S-video (just the TV) - audio for all 3.

    I returned the card and was sent another with a note saying that the card was defective.

    I installed it and it looked fine. My TV channels were added - everything was set up.

    I plugged in the video jack and everything went black again!!!! (no Vvvvvooooopppppp this time)

    Now no video in composite, S-video, or TV.

    I contacted ATI today and they never heard of this before. They are sending me another card with a new purple input cable.

    I am using a JVC plug in to my camera with the 3 RCA jack output.

    I'm afraid to plug the video in again when the new card comes.

    Could it be the cable - or two bad cards in a row, or..............?

    Any comments?????

    Thanks,

    Dave

    I have sent this same concern to ATI with no responce.

    maybe the camera signal is too strong for the card?
