Default Video capture through graphics card

I have an XFX Geforce FX 5200 256MB PCI graphics card. This card has an S-video jack on it and I was wondering fi anyone knew if it was possible to record video through it. For instance my digital camcorder.

This requires VIVO, correct? How do I know if I have that?

On the install CD it includes "TV Capture" drivers. I installed these figuring I probably need them.

Has anyone had any luck with this? Or could you point me in a direction I need to go?

Thanks.

So is it only an S-Video out? or can I pull in a signal from TV?

If it is only out, why do they include the capture drivers on the disk?
