One of the nice things about taking a day off is that it really does
help clear the mind. And it gives one the energy to tackle painful problems, like:
Why is the tv-out signal not working since I cleaned up the mess-o-cables in the back of the new PVR?
even in the face of painful recent history involving:
- reinstalling drivers
- messing around with control panel configurations for hours
- rebooting n times
- getting depressed at the complexity of things that should be simple
So I figured I'd try something silly like plug the video card in
another PCI slot, “just for fun”. At which point I realized that I'd
plugged the cable going to the RF converter into the video
capture card, not the video out card. Sigh.
