This article discusses potential issues with digital video recording when adding and using a third-party PCI video card to a Power Macintosh 7500, 7600, or 8500 series computer.
The Power Macintosh 7500, 7600, and 8500 series computers come with built-in video support and support for digital video recording. Because the video digitizer is tied to the built-in video on these computers, digital video recording will work best when the built-in video is used.
If a PCI video card is added, and the built-in video is not used at all (that is, there is nothing connected to the built-in video connector), video digitizing applications such as Apple Video Player will record sluggishly.
If a PCI video card and built-in video are being used simultaneously (that is, there are two monitors connected to the computer), Apple Video Player will work best when the video window is on the monitor connected to the built-in video connector.
