I'm having trouble configuring my ATI All in Wonder card w/ my digital
cable box. I got the card to work with the cable straight from the
wall, but I didn't get all of the channels. I'm using the trial of
SnapStream (since the ATI software will only allow 125 channels). I
even looked through old newsgroup postings to see if I could find the
right config. Here's what I have:
ATI video card:
Standard Cable input
Motorola Digital Cable Box:
Standard Cable input & output
I've tried the following:
1) Standard cable input to cable box. Standard cable output to video
card. No dice.
2) standard cable input to cable box. Composite output to video card
adapter, S-video to video card. No dice again.
Pardon me for being a newbie, but the cable from the wall is supposed
to go to the cable in on the cable box, correct? Then the line out
should go to the video card? I don't know if I'm missing something
here, the diagrams looked pretty simple before I started messing with
The only way to receive digital and/or scrambled channels is through the
digital box. Using S-Video is best, followed by composite, then RF.
Because of this, you cannot use the tuner on your card. The tuning will
have to be done at the digital box.
