    I was running Win 98 SE and an ATI-TV WONDER PCI video capture/tv tuner and was able to use it as a capture device in Netmeeting. I migrated to Win XP Home Ed. and downloaded the newest drivers for ATI (actually ATI Multimedia 7.1 software that supposedly supports Win XP - this download includes the drivers).

    I can get the ATI card to be the capture device in Windows Movie Maker and Windows Messenger. But it will not show as a device to be used for Netmeeting. As a matter of fact, if it is the only video capture device available in the system when NM is started, the video option is disabled. Video will still work in NM because I can use my Logitech QuickCAM as the device and everything is fine. I want to use my ATI-TV WONDER because the video quality is much better. I could resort to Windows Messenger, but the software claims that the other user must also have Win XP - unfortunately, the people I want to conference with have not upgraded.

    I have searched the ATI site thoroughly (and often) as well as Microsoft Knowledge Base and the Netmeeting site in particular. No one else seems to have had this problem. I am hoping that someone here will have an idea.

    Thanks in advance.
