...I just wanted to add that you should also check the settings on your drivers
through the [My_Computer] [Multimedia] [Advanced] [Video_Capture_Devices] [WinTV_
Capture_Driver(?)] menu options. Through here, some capture boards require you to
put your "excludes", "base addresses" and "IRQs". Double-check this for your board!!!
