Well, I'll answer this myself because,
after several hours of head
scratching, I've sussed it out.
<SECURITY KEY NOT FOUND>
What it is REALLY saying is:
<I CAN'T SEE THE CAPTURE CARD>
So I am not going to run. Might seem
simple to most, but it perplexed
me for ages. Therefore, the answer is to:
1. Tediously disable EVERYTHING non-essential in the PC
2. Get the
PICO card to work (which it did when everything else
3. Then start adding devices one after the other until the
stops working (Security Key Not Found etc., etc.)
That last device you added is the one causing the trouble
in the first
place. In my case an integrated INTEL NETWORK device on
motherboard. I disabled it in BIOS; got the
PICO to work and then
added a cheap PCI network card, which got me back online
Yet prior to discovering this problem, Windows XP Pro
everything hunky dory. No yellow exclamation marks or red
Even now I cannot understand how this INTEL NETWORK device
buggering things up because it was not sharing IRQ, I/O or
address with the
PICO. Oh well....Another Wndows mystery unsolved.
TIPS FOR ISTALLING AND RUINNING
2000 VER. 1.8 WITH THE UCC4
4-PORT CAPTURE CARD FROM GAMMAGRAPHX INC. (WINXP PRO
1. Put card in PCI slot
2. Restart the machine
3. Install drivers (Star Imavision Video/Audio capture)
5. Reboot the machine
6. Make sure you have FULL sharing enabled on file: c:\DSR-Video\
1. The company that sold me this kit said
I mustn't load the drivers
because, if I did, the card wouldn't work. This is not
true. The UCC4
card works with or without the drivers in Windows XP Pro.
drivers it seems to prefer IRQs 10 or 12 where it sits as
audio and video devices>. 'Course if you don't load the
Pro keeps prompting you for them each time you reboot. So
if you don't
want the drivers you have to keep cancelling out the Add
Wizard. A pain in the ass really.
2. There's a very clever bloke who has kindly supplied WDM
other utlitites for this card which allow it to work with
compatible Windows capture program (I tried them with
Maker and Ulead MSPRO 7 Video Capture and they worked fine
and you can
even capture directly to MPEG 2 with Ulead using the right
Those drivers and some other stuff can be
These are Brooktree drivers which work
with the UCC4 even though it
says Connexant on the capture chip. Believe me. The
work great. Meanwhile, BTSPy (also at the above URL)
allows you to
customise the card when installing the Brooktree Drivers.
any Windows program to access all four ports on the card
(but so far I
have not found a program that allows viewing them all at
time). However, you can capture from up to four cameras
by selecting the appropriate input. But no Quadding or
without the right software.
Nevertheless, BTSpy required that your
UCC4 is working with
(or other multiplex software) before it can spy out your
capabilities. So, in case your card isn't working, here's
reported for my card (when I tested it with the DICO
software, which I
DID manage to get to work).

Add here all the comments you want!
If your card can decode Stereo TV , and
your card does NOT use one of the following
chips, you will have to "peek" the right
GPDATA and GPOE values to enable Stereo and
SAP audio. The driver already supports the
DPL3518, MSP34xx, PT2254, TDA7432, TDA8425,
TDA9840, TDA9850, TDA9855, TDA9873, TDA9874,
TDA9875, TEA6300 and TEA6420 and does not require
extra information to drive them!
If you are able to get your card working
this program , please , mail me this file (with
any extra comments you would like to add) to:
ejta...@tutopia.com , so I can add native support
to your card in the next driver release!
The above setup and drivers (Brooktree)
2000 work, but
they'll allow the UCC4 to work with any WDM application
Movie Maker or Ulead Video Capture etc., etc.). In these
you will be
able to access each port on the card and capture from each
idividually (but NOT all four at the same time, as you can
Whew! I hope all this is useful to somebody. Kept me busy
Christmas anyway ;-)
