Need advice. Kind of fallen behind in what is out there

Hi all, I have been happily using an All In Wonder 9600 card for
several years. No games. I use it for the TV recording.

Last week, it gave up the ghost, and so I have looked for a direct
replacement, as its the card that does what I want. Kind of expensive
for those who have one and are trying to sell them.

In my closet, is an AIW VE which I know is older, and less RAM, but it
has the same ability to record off my Cable TV Coax, which is what I
want.

The card works, the drivers install, but I am missing a cable, and
don't know what it is I am looking for. It is the cable for the audio
off the COAX input, that goes to the sound card on my motherboard.
With the AIW 9600, it was obvious what cable to use, but with the VE
card, I am lost.

I thought it was that silly purple box with the RCA connectors and the
SVideo connector, but that ain't it either.

Can anyone help me figure out how to get the audio from the VE card,
that I need to connect to the sound card. I don't care if I have to
fabricate/fake it with one end of the cable, I just want the sound. I
don't do TV out, or anything else like that, but have never seen the
kind of cable I am looking for.

I know that on the back of the VE card, there is a pin in the A/V
connector that must have the audio I need to feed to the sound card.
Anyone know what pin it is? Anyone have a VE that could explain what
this connector looks like?

There are lots of connectors for all these AIW cards on ebay, but
frankly, I don't think any of them are correct for the VE, and I don't
have faith that the seller has a clue in most cases.

So, I am here to ask if anyone knows what the right cable looks like,
and lacking that, anyone have any suggestions how I can figure out
which pin is audio, without zapping something on the card, or the
sound card by simply trying every possible pin?

Sure would appreciate some help if anyone has any ideas. Again, not a
game machine, basically, a cheap TiVo knockoff, but I really like
it. :)

Thanks,

John

This connector is input for external video capture.

There are two ways to get audio to the sound chip. One way is to use
the adapter cable that plugs into the output mini-DIN connector on the
AIW VE. This cable has a plug that goes into the blue line-in
connector to the sound chip. The other way is to use a CD audio cable
to connect the white internal audio connector on the AIW VE (top of
the card next to the bracket

Dude, you are my hero. Thanks a lot for the CD connector info. Works
great, you made my day, and bought me time to wait for good deal on a
better card. Kind of limited because I don't have PCI Express, but
even an AIW 9600 AGP like I had, would be fine when I find one for a
fair price.

Very much obliged for your taking the time to help me out. :)
