No need for All Caps ;)

 

1. NO!

2. NO!

3. ... it is not a software function! It requires a hardware converter.

I have used 2, HD converters - an AverMedia card and lately Roxio's GameCAP Pro.

 

The AverMedia will not capture anything with HDMI and I use a cheaters 3rd Party Software to do that :lol:

 

Roxio's GameCAP Pro will only capture from HDMI if it does not have HDCP coding in it... That means Camcorders work but no DVD/BD Player will!

(the Xbox 360 did not have it but the newer Xbox One and PS4 do however their software allows a user to turn it Off for recording)

 

The 2 hardware devices and their associated software DO allow a Full Screen Preview so Cheater Software, like the VSSCap included in NXT3 will capture the screen output.

 

I should also mention that both these hardware devices will allow capture from any Component (PR, PB & Y) source.

To your third question, Roxio does have an HD capture device out, it's called the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro, which will capture in 1080i @ 60fps, or 1080p @ 30fps. Just because it's named as a "Game Capture" device, doesn't mean it can't be used for signals from other devices. Not sure what sort of HD source you're looking at capturing from though. Any HD video cameras capture to an SD card, or drive of some sort that you wouldn't normally "capture" from them to work with the video, you'd simply copy the files to your PC and edit directly. So I'm curious as to what your intended use is?

 

To your second question, no, I don't believe there is any way to alter the size of the preview, capture window. Why do you want a larger window? It's really just there to verify your signal as you capture. I don't do a lot of video capture, but it's always sufficed to see that it's working, and or to see where to start/stop my capture.

 

As a general point, mixed case text is easier to read than all upper case, which is often interpreted as "shouting".

 

(Ha... you got through typing before I did, Jim.)

Gentlemen,

 

Thank you you for your quick & helpful responses.

 

Low skills with keyboard but point noted about "SHOUTING".

 

Have looked at variety of "Video Capture Cards'. *Avermedia* seems to meet all my needs. Secondly, appreciste info *Roxio* 'Game Capture HD Pro'.

 

Most of video capture is archiving *Dishnetwork* DVR HD video/audio "stuff". this I must do in 'live' time. Currently with *Roxio* 'Video Capture Device' ( S-Video, RCA adudio) limits my source to 720i and captured video is in "square" format (prefer 16:9 for better playback screen fill). Thought HDMI capture format would allow desired aspect ratio

 

Thanks again for taking time to respond.

 

JAKE

Just a note, I found the AverMedia a long learning process to install and setup...

 

Whereas the GameCAP HD Pro was drop in the disc and install then plug in the device and go!
