Hello folks, this is time for me to ask something.
Have any of you an idea on how to make an ATi X1800XL (With VIVO) work with a 4850/4890 at the same time? I'm not talking about XFire though. Only use the X1800XL to stream video IN (yes, i have some uses on it still) and the other to do whatever I can't on the X1800XL (like games). I have an SLI MoBo and I'll change it for an 790FX (or the next gen AMD chipset) if it's necesary.
So far I've tried to use them as is (no tweaking on drivers nor special drivers) and I haven't been able to use the X1800XL. Seven tells me "no no" and can't figure out why =/
And let's leave the "You can always switch cards!" for plan Z
Sorry. ATI stopped support for the older All-In-Wonder video streamimg cards with XP. That is to say, drivers still work (if you only use it as a graphics card), but the VIVO capability will not. I ran into the same issue when I first wanted to update my system with an X1800XL from XP.
