  1. If the question is can you plug a x1 card into a x16 slot, the answer is yes. PCI-E is backwards compatible with lower rated devices.

    However, it sounds like you have a configuration issue if you have the 2 AverMedia capture cards installed into the new motherboard and now you are having the video synchronization issues.

    Are you using the older or newer mobo now?
