Gateway DX4200 1.8GHz QuadCore with ATI Radeon HD 3200 video card with 4 gig ram running windows vista x64
The card installed easily, it takes a pci-e slot so make sure that you do have a pci-e slot available. I also made sure my ATI video card had the latest drivers installed.
First, there is no windows Media Center (mce) interface offered for this card, they advertise that fact so no surprise there but dont mistake their Avermedia Center software for any resemblence of proper gui experience if you have used other media centers (MCE, XBMC, Mediaportal, Boxee, etc). It works but its lack of windows media center capability, its garish and harsh colors that burns the retina and lack of documentation (the included on disk user manual leaves much to be desired) makes the experience awkward and puzzling at times. You can eventually figure it out via trial and error...this effort however is on your time and dime.
Avermedia's defense for no windows mce interface is that Windows MCE only uses tuner devices and this is a capture device, but other products seem to have jumped that divide quite successfully (ex. Monsoon Hava product, Hauppauge HD PVR). I also understand that not all customers use windows media center or have access to it. But to limit your market potential (because thousands of mce users out there are looking for a reliable and robust high definition capture device) for lack of mce capability and having to rely on their proprietary bothersome and totally lacking software, I have to drop them a star on the review.Read more ›
I plugged the card into a PCI-e slot and downloaded the drivers directly from the website. Didn't even bother with the CD. First off, I abandoned HDMI immediately since as soon as I chose HDMI on the Aver MediaCenter source list, a dialog box pops up from the software stating I don't have HDCP.
So I chose what the manufacturer recommended for most HD sources: use the component video. I was able to output standard definition from my DVR, and even std def widescreen and the card had no problems. Once I bumped it up to 720p, the video started stuttering. I couldn't understand why since the other reviewers were able to get at least 720p, and I would have been happy with just 720p. I also tried 1080i. Forget that, I thought, since as soon as I enabled it on the DVR, I get a black flickering screen.
I called tech support and I was given the standard things to try: download latest drivers and software for the capture card and video card, both of which I tried but made no difference. But the tech guy suggested to switch PCI-e slots. I have x1, x4, and x16 slots and I originally plugged the capture card on the x1. Then I plugged it into the x4 slot and bam!, no more stutter at 720p. Then I wondered, maybe 1080i? Bam!, clean, stutter-free video at 1080i. I can only assume that the card is moving so much data in HD that the x1 slot didn't have enough bandwidth. The card is now sitting comfortably on a x16 slot.
Now I can capture in full 1080i with no stutter.Read more ›
I'm using the component outputs of my DirecTV HR24-100 receiver into a breakout cable provided by AVerMedia. It's fruitless to try to use the HDMI output due to HDCP which would at least block recording if not viewing. That's not AVerMedia's fault. I might try it later just to verify this. [UPDATE 01/28/11: Well, surprise, I can view, timeshift and record my DirecTV via HDMI into the AVermedia card.] I'm using the R/L analog audio outputs into the breakout cable as well. Very little setup later and the AVerMedia MediaCenter is displaying a 1920x1080 image that matches the raw DirecTV output very nicely. I switched the recording option from the default MPEG2 setting to H.264. I see some complaints that the maximum bit-rate is too limited, but H.264 at 15000 kbps seems excellent. I checked the file properties of the recording and it shows 13,579 kbps for video. Even the running banner on CNN and FOX was rendered and recorded without any stuttering. Note that I have a fairly fast system based on an Intel Core i5-750 and an ATI HD 5770. While rendering live TV the AVerMedia software consumes only 7% of CPU cycles. Turning on timeshifting raises this to 20% at "best" quality. Recording to H.264 uses about 40-45% of CPU cycles at maximum settings and produces excellent recordings. Recording MPEG2 at maximum settings only consumes 20% of cycles but the recording showed some A/V synchronization problems.Read more ›
