im no the brightest at computering so bear with me please.
so on to my problem.
I have a conexant falcon ii video capture card. its also a tv tuner for me. i used to make videos on youtube about xbox 360 game play videos and montages with it. it worked perfectly fine for me. untill about 2 weeks ago i bought a new video card and stepped into the pc gaming world. i have the XFX GeForce 8600 GT XXX. so a few days ago i tried using it to record a video and nothing shows up on the preview screen. windows detects the Conexant falcon cideo capture card but i dont see a preview. when i go to click record i get an error. the video gets recorded but when i go to watch it there is nothing there. a 3 minute video at 720x480 is only 500kb. that dosnt make sense. i used many different programs to see if it will be different. i used WinAvi, virtual dub, sony vegas, adobe premiere, windows movie maker and they all had the same problem.
i have updated my drivers on it and i have even downgraded the drivers and same thing. if i made a guess its my video card that is messing it up. i dont know if i should worry but my video card is only a few millimeters from the card.
i also have another question. i have 2 pci slots being used by stuff i dont use. one looks like a phone line. its not ethernet because its too small. some one told me its a modem. and i also have something that i dont even know what it is. it looks like an fm antena. so can i remove those 2 things and move the falcon capture card to a lower slot?
i relly want this problem fixed. im a somewhat popular on youtube and gametrailers. i have over 100,000 total views on my 32 videos and 71 subscribers. i really wish i could get this problem fixed. ive posted in many different forums like gamfaqs, and gametrailers. i just came along to this site while googleing my capture card.
