Thanks for the fast response. I have a normal  Pnnacle PCTV standar, but
it has another chipset, it has the 7133.  Someone with this chipset has
taken succesful?

Well, it's a good idea to include the venueclient but I have problems with
my available PCI slots.

In Mexico, it is hard to find capture cards with multiple inputs.  In some
cases, I read about the Eagle CArd or another that I don't remember by

Thanks in advance
