When I acquire a PAL image in LAbview/Imaq/MAX, I can only acquire half of it and the image is squashed

Highlighted
No matter how I try (and believe me I have tried!), I cannot acquire the full picture shown on my TV monitor (PAL video signal) using MAX, IMAQ or LABVIEW. When I try in MAX, under the properties for my Channel, the largest image I can acquire is 200 x 200; anything larger than this & I get the IMG_ERR_TIMO error. In addition, the image I acquire only shows the left hand side of the TV screen and the image appears squashed. As far as I know I haven't created an ROI, but it does look as if this is what is displayed in my image window. However double-clicking on the image does not solve my problems.
I'm using LABview 5.1, and I have up-dated IMAQ Vision
to 5.0.3 but this has not helped. While there is interference in the picture, I assume that this is due to the PCI-1408 board.

Did you start with the generic PAL camera definition in MAX?

It sounds like you are in field mode instead of frame mode, which should fix the squashing.

Sounds like a good problem to contact NI support with.
