Hi guys, thanks for taking a look, I'll get straight to the point, I need some help please!
I am a newbie here but I did read the manual and even contact ATi consumer support which was slow and frustrating.
My question is simple, maybe too simple, I just want to know how can I enable the display from my component inputs where my PS2 is plugged in?
ATi tells me I'm supposed to hit the input connector button, but after a brief look and a search on the internet it seems to be a button on the software available for lower-spec ATi TV tuner software but not on the bundled software I have, ATi PowerCinema.
Make your component connection and turn on PS2, then launch the TV application and right click tv window and select setup, go to Channel List tab, and you should see Theater 550 input, with Composite connecter, well select it and the tv window should display properly.
If ati is slow to respond, you could try asking CyberLink since they're the ones who actually make Powercinama. Did you respond to ATI saying that they didn't answer your question? It took 2 or 3 replies saying "no, that's not helping/ no that's not what I asked" befor they finally told me what I wanted.
did a quick google search since I don't have powercinima...does this help at all?
Before connecting the external DVD or VCR device, make sure that the output (S-video or Composit video output and audio output) of your DVD player is connected to the connector on the TV tuner card correctly. Start Power Cinema 4.0 and enter the TV function. Click[Settings] > [Signal Settings] > [Capture Device], and change the setting to 713x BDA Analog Capture. Then click [Settings] > [Signal Settings] > [Capture Source], and select S-video or Composite for the input.
