Default Capture Card issues

My capture card has been giving me all sorts of issues and frankly, I don't want to deal with them anymore. I have THREE issues with this junk heap:

1) Audio desynchronization.

2) video hanging. Freezes for a good half second before resuming. When rendered to youtube, this appears as a sudden skip instead.

3) Bright/White areas create a whitewash effect.


Here's two videos showcasing the problems:

YouTube - Super Street Fighter 4 | Mr Gruntsworthy (Makoto) vs Hosenka92xx (Ibuki) << Problems 1 and 2 prevalent here.

YouTube - SSF4 Compilation for Critique << This shows the whitewash effect.

Capture card is from ASUS; program I use for recording is Total Media 3.5; pc is the HTPC in my sig below.

Any idea what's causing these problems, or how to fix it?

see, the thing is, the sound desync/skipping issue is actually intermittent--as in, it doesn't happen all the time. It does now, though, no matter how many times I reboot the damn thing. The only problem that's been consistent is the white washing.

Don't know the model of the card right now (pc's packed up, i'm moving soon), and the white wash is not in the original video stream. it's a result of the capture processing.
