my graphics card (sapphire x1900xt) came with a few dongles one is component out and the other is composite/s-video in and out, ive used the component before so i know that works but i decided i would like to use the video input so i can output my dvr and watch it threw orb however im not sure how i can view the video feed on my pc. Does anyone have any ideas?

yeah thats what i thought too but where in those players do you go, in mediaplayer i did a file open, etc, and i looked around there no place that has that sort of an option, so i dunno, maybe it just doesn't work and ill have to get a video capture device, i was just hoping to be able to get that to work so i didn't have to.

Actually looking into it wmp can't play video from capture cards. I'm sure ATI has software though, I know they have Catalyst Media Center for their TV tuners, not sure if it works with your card but give it a shot. Also maybe you can try Sapphire technical support.

Its called ATI Multimedia Center now i guess, this link is for window XP, not sure what OS you have but you can find it under the driver section for x1900 on amd's website.
