    Hi

    just wondering before i try setting it all up is it possible to connect 2 computers up together using the VIVO on the gfx cards?
    i would be using s-video ables to mainly record game footage on one PC while i was playing on the other.

    should all work right?

    if so what is the best software to capture the video, im sure windows movie maker would work but prefer something with better quaility.

    thanks

    I used S-video cables and i can record games at 720x576 on the other computer but i also have to play at that resolution on my gaming computer. :(

    Is there any way to say play a game at 1600x1200 on my gaming computer and have that recorded onto the other computer? The graphics cards have 2 DVI sockets on each card....can the DVI be connected to each computer to transfer a copy of the picture for recording?

    thanks

    DVI sockets are output only.

    Your video card hardware/software probably only supprts capture at DVD resolution.

    If you buy a HD capture card that has VGA or DVI input, or HDMI input if you have a DVI-to-HDMI adaptor, then you can capture at least 1024x768 (if 720p) or the full 16x12 if it allows 1080p.
