I thought maybe a new thread would be useful to accumulate experiences with this new card. Preliminary comments: a jumper ... I thought we'd left jumpers back in the stone-age. No big deal I think, once set no doubt it can be forgotten. WRONG. While unpacking the cards an e-mail comes in notifying of a problem which means that the latest version of D-Scaler apparently won't recognise the card, you have to go back to an older version supplied with the card .. one can only hope someone is working on a fix to ensure we can apply updates to D-Scaler in the future. On the positive side, well done to them for sending that e-mail notification of problems, rather than lettting the unsuspecting user discover it doesn't work and then have to go hunting for help. However, I digress, also included on this e-mail is this note: "Remember that if you are using the RGBS SweetSpot Scart cable then you must set the jumper to ''Separated Sync', otherwise the picture will be visible but unstable. If you are using SweetSpot for component video however, the jumper must be set to 'Sync on Y/G'." So, one setting for RGB another for component and one can't switch between without opening up the box to change the jumper. At first sight this seems like it could become a PITA if one had component and RGB feeds one wanted to alternate between, I don't at present so it's not a big deal right now but come on chaps, jumpers went out of fashion in the mid'90s. X-Card: no documentation Absolutely no info supplied just the card in the box and nothing to indicate where documentation can be acquired, my guess this is an OEM version. Luckily, the afore-mentioned e-mail contains the URL of Sweetspot's support page which in turn links to Simga's web site where the manual and software can be obtained .. would have been less disconcerting if this had been included with the card, or at the very least a note saying what needs to be acquired and where from. I had problems getting the software, Sigma's FTP server proved very stubborn to accept connections, in the end though 2 2Mb+ .ZIPs were acquired. Oh well, there IS a CD with the Sweetspot itself so I presume its' documentation is on there ... it seems obvious where this ribbon cable goes, but one likes to be sure. More later .. hopefully when I've got the bits and pieces installed.
