I have recently bought this card and overall I am quite pleased with it, but i have encountered some issues. The most annoying is when i try to acces the captured video files with the explorer in WinXP SP1. When I click on one of the files CPU usage goes to 100% and stays there and the windows explorer stops responding and must be shut down in task manager. The files work fine if I acces them with another application (powerdvd, dvdstation, winfastDVD or WinDVD) Anybody else had this problem or know how to solve it? I am also wondering what capture settings are the best to use. I find the capturing to be rather demanding on the CPU. I do most my recordings with 6000kb/sec and the quality set to 500 at 720*576 25 fps. This gives ok quality and the CPU runs at around 90% (Athlon XP2000). Higher quality skips frames, and thats useless. Any suggestions on how to improve recording quality? How does increase in kb/sec affect quality? Any help will be appreciated.
