    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...????

    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
    with OS

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

    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)
