The manual has clear and concise descriptions on how to install the driver and
application on a 98SE, ME, Win2K, or XP platform. The instructions accompanied by
illustrations are very easy to follow. It even has instructions on how to verify
successful driver installation or upgrade.
I knew that there is a later application and driver (V1.55.3) available online at DigitalConnection but thought
I'd install the one that came with the CD first (V1.54) to see how it behaves. I
figured it would give me a good perspective to better appreciate the added features of the
latest version and it did.
There's a myriad of settings for myHD. Below are just some of settings for my
Video Resolution: 1920 x 1080i
Screen Format: LetterBox
Display Type: RGB
Yes, my HD set has component inputs but remember from the Hardware page that the component
input is coming from the transcoder which in turn receives RGBHV from the myHD/VGA
card. Hence, the myHD card needs to send out RGB to the transcoder.
Analog Input: Composite
Audio Output: Wave
Analog Audio: Stereo
Digital Audio: Dolby Surround
Above settings for Audio work for my configuration which makes use of a single audio out
from the HTPC to feed the audio receiver. This single out from the audio card
provides the output for both WinDVD player and myHD tuner.
