Captures

I use both InterVideo WinDVR 3 and InterVideo Home Theater to do captures depending upon the card. I have to specifically tell it which connection to utilize, meaning RF, composite or S-Video. Do you have either of those?

Cabling

Do you mean composite (yellow, red, white) or component (blue, red, green)? Component is for a high-def signal and the Dreamcast obviously doesn't support that or have such a cable (it only does RF, composite, S-Video or VGA depending upon the cable). You can use an RF box with the coaxial input or use composite cables with the composite inputs.

If I were you, I'd verify that you can get something to work through the TV tuner card at all, as I've noticed that some consoles/classic computers work with certain capture cards and not with others, which is why I use two different types. You'll save yourself lots of trouble verifying the function of the card, then you can determine right away whether your system works properly with it.

Also, when you do the captures, make sure you're taking snapshots and not video, as the quality will be better.
