Maybe sometime in the future there will be a decent compatability program that will allow XP hardware to work in Vista machine...but not at this time that I am aware of.
One option would be to lose the vista and install XP to the new computer...dual booting will probably cause major conflicts as there are no drivers for the capture card for vista and as such every time you tried to boot to vista with the card installed you would have issues.....
There is an off chance that someone took it upon themselves and redesigned the old xp driver to work in vista....(this happens all the time). Join the manufacturer's forum if they have one and check in there for one. You can also try to locate one in a drivers forums as well but some of these forums cost to join and there are no guarantees.
