Hello:

I have an old STB Velocity 4400 video card in my PC. It is a 16 Meg AGP X2 card that I've had for many years. The driver assigned to this device is for a 64 Meg NVidia Card of some sort. The card has two output connections: One is the standard connection for a monitor, the other is an S-Video connection for televisions. I remember, while running pre-XP Windows Operating Systems, that I had access to this S-Video port. I could use it as part of a dual monitor setup or as a standalone output source for my PC. The drivers I'm using don't give me any options to enable this output connection. The latest drivers I could find from STB for this video card were from 2001 (very old) and won't work in XP. I'd like to get that S-Video output going again as I need to put some PC stuff on my Television in the near future. Does anyone know of a way to get this feature working? I'm thinking I may have to buy a new video card (what I should have done a long time ago).

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

I suspect that the functionality comes from a third party (stb) utility, rather than a driver. I would think, then, you could install the old windows 2000 driver, then add the detonator driver for the update driver stability and speed.

I don't have the software for this old STB card. The old driver that I found for it online wouldn't work either. I unzipped the files into an STB folder and ran tried to update the driver while pointing to that path. Windws said there was no information in that folder for my device. It isn't crucial that I get this thing on television this upcoming weekend, but it sure would be nice. I may just treat myself to a new card. I'm long overdue one for this system anyway.

Thanks for the help :tazz:
