Will DuronClocker successfully turn his Radeon 8500LE into an 8500 VIVO? :-)
I was recently able to supply DuronClocker with a partial pinout for the Rage Theater chip found on Radeon 8500s.
Technically, the RT1 ("Ripper") can capture CVBS/SVHS video - the feature just isn't used on 8500s apart from the AIW/VIVO versions.
Theoretically, all you need to do is connect the right pins up for signalling, flash the BIOS to a VIVO-enabled one, install the necessary drivers and cross your fingers. :cool:
No pressure, dude. :D
