What the title says. Looking for a DOS app that can work with old PCI "tv tuner" / NTSC+PAL video capture cards (ATI Rage Theater, Conexant, Matrox, etc.) I need this for... reasons, certainly not stupid ones.
All I need is for it to display the input of the card, de-interlaced, in full screen. (Suitably crunched down to Mode-X/13h or some VESA mode.) I don't need any kind of overlay, TV tuner functionality or even sound support.
It it doesn't exist, how hard would it be to write? Do these cards just capture to a framebuffer in memory you can read from, or are they more software controlled?
