This is the iChat 4 Connection Doctor's Window Drop Down with the Capablities showing. These are your Capabilities

 New. This whole pane to this drop down is new.

It will display everything that you can do. If you think it should show Video Chat or Audio Only capabilites then check the Enable items in the Video or Audio Menu.

The last item I have highlighted for a reason. This is the difference in what Intels Macs can do over Power Mac Processors. Apple have used the Processor info of the specs of your computer to say if it can do Backdrops in the Video Effects (Video Menu). In truth it is a Video Card issue but as Upgrades to your computer may not be picked up properly or you may be using an Unsupported card APple have used the Proccessor spec as the Cut off point. This means only Intels can do Backdrops.
