Hello Bill

Thank you for the information - it worked great in getting the QuickCam
to be active rather than the TV Tuner.

Now I have another problem. The picture that CuSeeMe brings up is all
washed out. I have gone through the Net and hooked in with my other
computer (a Mac) and the image that is being broadcast is the same which
is displayed on the PC - all washed out.

Using the same lighting conditions, when bring up the QuickCam software
(Connectix - latest version) the picture is as it should be.

Any ideas.

Thanks once again.

Dave
