Hauppauge ImpactVCB 166 make setting default to S-Video

\015 Hauppauge ImpactVCB 166 settings. Is there anyway to make this card default to the S-Video port for all users in Windows XP?\015

Answers :

It should just be a setting under options in the driver controll panle for the video card
\015\012the next way is probly above your technical abilities
\015\012
\015\012if you care to try here is how
\015\012find the folder in programs files if not there check in the main c drive
\015\012once you find the driver folder for the video card you have to find the file that controls the settings
\015\012mostlikely ending in .ini
\015\012if your lucky it will be a simple text file that you can open with notepad
\015\012your going to have to do some research on what the proper wording is to make the setting defult to s-video
\015\012who know it might be just that simple
\015\012
\015\012you could also try the registy approach and change the setting in the registry that says what the defualt is saposed to be this method is the fastest and esayest way it is also the proper way if the setting is unavalible from the video cards controll panle.
\015\012
\015\012the hard part is finding the corect registry entry to edit or modify
\015\012to get into the registry
\015\012start/run/enter in the field "regedit" then click ok
\015\012the registry editor should now be open
\015\012
\015\012be highly advised making mistakes in here can and will corupt your system to the point of not working at all
\015\012if you dont know what the hkey is for dont tinker with it you will be sorry if you do
\015\012export any key you plan on changing befor you change it thus if you do make a mistake you can simply double click the exported hkey to restore it back to its original state
\015\012note for some Hkeys this wont be a fix it because your system wont even boot after you corupt the Hkey
\015\012good lucky making the change you need to make and check the setting of the card driver first look for tabs and sub menues boxes that say advanced on them check thru those first
