I have two machines I want to capture their display via DVI for recording game footage. However I cannot get the display cloned from their VGA out and DVI out.
PC1 (some DOS but mainly late 90s early 00s 3D gaming) has an AGP NVIDIA MX440 with VGA and DVI, this has an image to both displays during POST but in Windows the best I can get is Extend desktop. Whenever I try and Clone the image with NVIEW, the PC hard locks. Reinstalling Windows is the only way to recover without the machine then locking as soon as the NVIDIA driver loads. I have tried different versions of the driver from 40.72 WHQL all the way up to v71.84. I also tried direct from NVIDIA which I believe was version 77.xx. Is there any way to make this work? It is weird it often works during POST so I just need to set the card to remain in that state.
PC2(primarily want excellent DOS compatibility) has a PCI Radeon 7000 with VGA and DVI. This machine does not display anything on the second display at all until I press Extend in Windows. I have installed ATi drivers and I can enable both displays but even in the ATi driver properties I can only extend to both displays, not clone or duplicate. I installed Hydravision but this seems to just want to make more desktops on the same display which is not what I am after.
I have ordered 2x NVIDIA FX5200 cards (AGP and PCI) as I am sure I read somewhere on these forums from Philscomputerlabs that they are easier to work with for this purpose.
I would just record from the VGA out but my Elgato HD Capture does not like any signal unless it is 720p/1080p at either 24, 50 or 60Hz. Anything else and it throws a major wobbler. I have a VGA to HDMI upscaler but the quality is terrible.
Any help would be most appreciated.
