What you did should work, but since it's not, you may want to try 
deleting your capture card and re-adding it.

Actually, I guess you should "Delete all"?  Whenever anything related to 
capture card trouble appears on the list, the first thing that pops into 
my head is Michael T. Dean's mantra, "Delete all capture cards" - and 
I've never even had any capture card/lineup trouble!

Well anyway, this is just a guess, really.  Maybe someone will have a 
better idea.
