[AG-TECH] New AG PC issues

We are currently building a building a new pc for our access grid room.
I am having a few problems with the configuration. The pc is a Dell
Precision T5400 with the following specs:
* Intel Quad Xeon X5450 processor@ 3.0Ghz
* 2 x 500 gig hdd's (not in any raid)
* 2x ATI FireGL v7600 512mb pcie x16 graphics cards
* 8GB (2x4 Gbsticks) 667 Mghz ECC quad channel DDR fully buffered
* IVCE 268G PCI-E capture card
* Windows XP pro 32 bit with service pack 3
Connected to the computer we have 4x Sony PTZ cameras, 1 24" dell
monitor and 2 40" Sony Bravia panels for display.
I am encountering the following issues when using the AG software:
1. When I have multiple displays connected to the computer and open
the AG software I get a vic menu dialog pop up. This dialog opens about
4 times for every video stream. It doesn't come up when I have just the
Dell monitor connected. It is very annoying because you have to sit
there clicking dismiss constantly. This is a link to a screenshot of
the vic menu: http://mtu.flinders.edu.au/documentation/vicmenu.jpg
2. In vic the stream from port 1 on the capture card is a blue. It
doesn't matter what source I connect to it. If I use another piece of
software I can see the stream from that port.
3. The capture settings in vic do not seem to change settings on
the capture card. eg. the capture card seems to default to NTSC. If I
select PAL in the menu it doesn't seem to change to PAL. I downloaded a
piece of software called Amcap. Using Amcap I can change a lot of
settings on the capture card and these settings once changed will remain
when I open AG but as soon as I restart the computer it will loose all
of the settings. Is there way of setting up the capture card and
defaulting it so it will always start up with the same settings?
Any suggestions for fixes for these problems would be greatly appreciated.
