Snagged this more modern capture card for cheap for my streaming adventures. I don't need it to do anything fancy, as long as it can handle >=640x480 modes @ 60Hz it'll do the job. (This is a "1080p" card so I'm hoping it will also allow for 1600x1200, but I'll live if it doesn't.)
Note that those ports are one HDMI input and one "AV in." The card has a good selection of analog inputs using its wonderfully bizarre breakout cable - first time I've ever seen an HDMI connector repurposed for something decidedly not HDMI like that. What an odd choice!
I wonder if they had to pay the HDMI licensing fee for both ports...
Incidentally, I also tried to upgrade my glacial internet service yesterday... My mainland-based ISP were all set to give me a literal 10x improvement in upload & download speed for only an extra $10 per month, and roll in a cheap deal on a new DSL modem to handle it, until they looked up my address and figured out the basic plan I have was already maxing out the line capacity in my 60-year-old building. Guess I'm stuck with 6mbit/768k for the forseeable future. 😠 We're never going to get any broadband infrastructure upgrades in this area because the incredibly old NIMBY-ists who permeate all public discourse here are actively against it. Sometimes I hate this island.
