    i have a wintv card on my computer but when I watch things like
    soccer or basketball on it, i notice that the ball seems to drag along the screen
    when it is passed. I notice the same thing if there is any rapid movement
    in a tv programme. does anyone know what might be causing this?
    I've tried defragmenting the hard drive but it makes no difference.

    What type of monitor?

    If it has a very long response time, then that is what will happen. Older LCD monitors had poor response but newer are OK.

    Can only be fixed in that case by replacing the monitor with a shorter response one.
    Or getting the players to kick the ball slower.

    thanks man,
    hopefully thats it because I built a computer last summer and since I was 18,
    I didn't have enough money to get everything at once!
    I'm using an old crt 15" monitor off a friend.
    thanks again
