    Ok here it is... I have a Matrox G400 Marvel TV card, and I would love to use it in my system that now runs XP Pro, Problem is, I only have DISPLAY support for the card, there are no XP video Tools, or Desktop Tools for this card which means I can't use the Video part of the system... On the Matrox site there is a note saying DISPLAY SUPPORT IN XP.

    This is good, but what about the other 80% of the features I bought the card for in the first place?

    Anyone know if I can use the Famous "Compatibility Mode" for the Video Tools and such? or Would I have to go back to 98 for this stuff...????

    SYSTEM IS
    1.4 GHZ AMD T-BIRD
    512 Meg Ram PC-133
    70 GIG HD SPACE (30 and 40)
    now running my VOODOO 5 5500 (great card but no video editing)


    please let me know if you know of a way to do this somehow

    I doubt compat mode would work for video tools that depend upon driver access.

    Sadly matrox dropped all support for winxp for it g400

    none planned
    --
    display support
    available
    with OS

    is all they have on thier site...you might be outta luck, sorry man :(

    UPDATE

    Ok here's the Latest.. I installed a set of XP display Drivers and 2k video tools... and IT WORKS!!! even the Duel head and the DVD Zoom ...


    Just in case anyone wants to try this, I am using
    w2k_582beta.exe (drivers)
    w2kvt204.exe (videotools)
