  1. Hey a couple of months ago i bought a tv card, unfortunatly i didnt realise it was only for digital tv, as i have anologue. anyways the other day i tryed it out.. nothing worked, so i thought hey maybe i can plug my gamecube into this thing, i did plug it in and it worked! but...
    the video is so bad, can anyone suggest anything i can do to improve the video quality? i shall post a picture in a moment of me playing a game.

    As you can see it is black and white, also very fuzzy.

    Winfast PVR Models

    Is this what your asking about ?
    I have the Winfast TV2000 XP Series Model 3 with remote.
    I use it for my Cable TV in and it's fantastic.
    I have a 19 " SAMSUNG 997df PC Monitor.
    If this is what your asking about,i'll try to explain your problems.
    Recording like VCR's isn't so good. :(
    But TV is excellent.

    i beleive what you have is the analogue version, mine is
    "winfast DTV1000 T"
    if i can use analogue tv on it i'd be happy :), but i tryed plugging in the anologue ariel before and nothing came up.

    just managed to get a near perfect picture using webcam settings over msn, i just need to figure out how to do with with the actual dtv program, =/
    notice the settings i have changed are the type to "pal_60" and messed around with the stuff like gamma and hue. any ideas how to change these things on dtv?
