    basically, i dont have a damn clue how i use the video in on this card, the reviews for VIVO X8x0's on this mention the yellow connector on the back, but nothing more

    so then, how can i use it and what can i use it for?

    Dont bother with the yellow plug.

    What ya do is, you would have got a CD with your card that has DVD software on it. It also contains capture software ;)

    Install the software, read the read me and then plug your Svideo cable that came with your card into the card Svideo jack . It will have leads all over place but its simple enough, the read me will guide you with whats what.

    Now plug the other end into your VCR, DVD , console or what ever you want to use.

    Startup the capture software and there ya go.

    I'm not to sure m8, never tried to run a console through my card.

    Maybe you need to drop the desktop res to 800x600.
