Arkitech is still being judged by the masses

Thumbs up First time AIW owner - I have 2 questions

I've been looking for a decent capture card and also a good gaming card. I had originally intended on buying a GeForce 3 card since I already own a WinTV 401 card, (capturing)however I've had 0 success in configuring the WinTV card to displaying acceptable TV images and capping anything is not even worth discussing.

Well yesterday I decided to try out the Radeon 7500 64mb AIW card and I have to say I'm very impressed so far. Right out the box I was able to install the card with the drivers from the CD and get decent TV reception and the gaming is incredible. So far I'm pleased with the results I've gotten. However there are couple of things that I would like to tweak or improve if its possible. I searched through the forum a bit but I was'nt able to find what I was looking for, so if I asked a question thats come up before please forgive me.

My first question is:

Is there a way to fine tune TV reception with the ATI software or do I need to use a 3rd party program?

Another issue I had is that when I tried to use the s-video with my ReplayTV for some reason the card did'nt pick up the signal. I tried selecting the s-video input from the setup menu several times but I still could'nt get an image, is there something I'm doing wrong?

Again I apologize if these questions have been asked before, thanks for any info you can provide.

Post A few more details

AMD Athlon 700 Slot A
256mb PC133
Windows 2k Pro

My cable feed is good, if I switch the cable from my card to the TV the reception is crystal clear.
