Set adapter settings unavailable on MCA.
The 4 pin DIN auxiliary connector [S-VHS or Y-C] always shows the current AM/II video output in the currently selected video standard. I found it a challenge to use OS/2, because only the resolution and colors are shown, but NOT the refresh rate.
NOTE: If you use the XGA-2 under Warp or OS/2, refer to these DMQS screen resolutions on Peter's site in order to identify combinations that will use the correct resolution and refresh rates.
Supported Resolutions: [Base Video]
Supported Resolutions: [AM/2 video cable output connector]
Attach Video Source to ActionMedia/2 (FlexCam example)
Plug the S-VHS cable into the FlexCam, the other end to the S-VHS to YC adapter (use FRU 69F9736 from ebuy), plug the S-VHS to YC adapter into the 8 pin DIN video cable (red wire to red wire, green wire to green wire), video cable into 8 pin DIN receptacle on AM/2. Don't try using the S-VHS receptacle on the AM/2 for any video input, it's an output...
OS/2 sucks trying to find out the refresh rates, so I used my LCD to find that in this configuration, 640x480x64k is at 72.9Hz, so I used the 640x480 72Hz VESA screen setting. I used the Composite video, I think, instead of YC. For XGA-2 users, check the DMQS screen resolutions HERE to see if the monitor.resolution/colors/refresh are supported by the AM/2. OS/2 does not show refresh... Why, I don't know.
Some contrast problems, but it does work. For the capture
application "Stills Capture" window size, use Alt-F10 to make the window
full sized. To size the capture window to match the video source, click
on the left upper corner of the Capture utility window. Choose "Natural
Size" and it will resize the window to match the video source.

[ed. 4 pin DIN or "composite
input 1" is the connector next to the HDD-15]
Whichever capture source you select, you must also specify the video standard being output by the capture source, using the Video Standard options, and whether or not is a video tape player (VCR), using the Device Type options.
