Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

oh, sorry, I completely missed that... don't use DVI then? x3 even then you can also find some older professional scalers that take digital input for less. Yeah, my Win9X PC is kinda overpowered, One of those Acer 775 boards with AGP, so it has a Radeon X800 in it. I'd prefer to keep the whole …

Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

a) get a software/hardware combination that handles resolution changes during capture b) Use an inline scaler between the retro PC and Cam Link 4K to scale all resolutions to a specific resolution on the fly . Options include the Cypress CP-252 (VGA to DVI) and Extron RGB-DVI 300 ( VGA to DVI ). …

Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

I am happy to read that you are getting closer to your objective . I have tried some other capture cards cards, including bottom-of-the-barrel cheap ones, and most have been disappointing and/or unusable for non-HDTV resolutions . The previously mentioned Datapath E1S and Cam Link 4K have been the …

Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

Both the Datapath E1S and the Elgato Cam Link 4K (now Corsair owned branded) handle 1600x1200 capture according my tests . The Cam Link 4K does so unofficially . Both also handle oddball non VESA resolution such as the custom one used here : https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=74244&start= …

Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

2 options, in that case . a) Get an EDID emulator (DVI or HDMI with passive adapters as required) , copy your existing DVI monitor's EDID into it and connect it between the video card and DVI capture device . The video card will behave exactly as if it was connected to the DVI monitor b) Get a DVI/ …

Re: Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

You just need to go into overscan control (inside CCC, Catalyst Control Center), and adjust it for your screen. Example : https://superuser.com/questions/57239/how-do-i-enable-disable-overscan-on-my-tv-in-catalyst-control-center You can also fix how it should scale image with resolution in there as …

Looking for 4:3 DVI/HDMI Capture hardware

I'm looking for options to capture DVI output form my Windows 9X and XP PCs for a personal project. Looking at most 'Gaming Capture Hardware' is fine for 16:9 and such but I hit problems testing with my PCs. This is DVI matter, not VGA. The main thing is most hardware also reports higher resolution …

Re: If you could only have two builds to span…

Windows XP Retro PC: Intel i3 3250, Asus P8B75-M LX, 8GB DDR3, Sapphire Radeon HD 6850, Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Windows 9X Retro PC: Intel E5800, ASRock 775i65G r2.0, 1GB DDR1, AGP Sapphire Radeon X800 Pro, Creative Sound Blaster Live! I have these two machines and I'm honestly super happy …

Re: Gopher..

In the late around 97 or so we had a school lab that used Gopher and we went there to do research. I think the teacher just couldn't book any of the other labs, cause everything else ran 'The Web' (granted in 97 a lot of the computers were still just offline, but most labs had internet). If anyone …

Re: Can it be done?! Should it be done?!

There's just way too much hardware variation, especially to 'correctly run' DOS games, for a single native hardware device to do this. The 'practical' idea would be the 'MS-DOS PC Mini', much like the NES Classic or Genesis Mini. It's a 'powerful enough' single board computer, ARM or x86, running a …

Re: I've ruined XP builds for myself

Yep, home network for sure :) Maybe a Pi based NAS with a nice fat SSD hanging off it. Or if you want to take it up a level, a commercial NAS with dual network interfaces, so you can run two networks, keeping the retro stuff off the internet but still share files between machines. eg: https://youtu …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

In 2011 I curbed a fully functional HP A7217A, which for the uninitiated, is the HP rebadge of the Sony GDM-FW900, the 'famous' widescreen 24" Trinitron monitor. I had paid $50 for it in 2010. ...I curbed it after replacing it with a 23" Asus TFT monitor... To be fair, at that moment, I had no space …

Re: Youtube and Magrathea

Well, I used MakeMKV and PowerDirector to make a cut from the BBC version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. When I tried to upload I got a message that it is copyrighted material. Does that mean that as technology improves we will discover making cuts of movies doesn't work anymore? The software …

Re: Allure of retro computing

1) I can build a machine that can play the games I used to play at a performance level I could only have imagined of back in the day. 2) The 80s, 90s and even early 2000's were a very experimental time in PC gaming and there's a lot of stuff you don't see so much anymore. Modern AAA gaming is …
