OK, so I'm using parts that don't work together, I've be scolded about that already. The ATI All-in-wonder/Radeon 9000 and DV card. Just tell me if this problem is due to that configuration . . .
When playing back from the timeline in MSPro7 the output quality via S-Video to my deck and Video to my TV is poor. The quality when capturing looks great on my TV. I also noticed that playing a clip via Windows media player is of less quality than if I play the clip using ATI File Player.
I haven't sent the project to DV yet. I'm hoping that there will be no loss there.
I think I've check all my settings . . . I think. Any suggestions on what else to check or does this come with my "cheap" video card?
