It appears since I installed a Skystar 2 sat tv card any s/w I use like Ulead Videostudio 7.0 is unable to record any off air tv from my Hauppaugue Win TV card. When I hit the capture button the video freezes and I have to force an exit of the program. I am unable to re-load the prog until I re-boot also. Prior to installtion all was well. It seems some of the codecs or whatever with the skystar's drivers are screwing up the mpeg encoders in some way ? Is the Skystar card sucking resources from the pc more than it should do ? I've uninstalled / re-installed the Ulead s/w but no change. Any ideas anyone ?
