UPDATE - I found what may have been, at least in part, the cause of my issue. I was watching programming that I only wanted pieces of, so I would hit the "skip" button on my remote control to get through unnecessary parts of the video. I attempted another recording today and everything started out in sync, then I hit the "skip" button 1 time and the audio/video were no longer in sync on my PC. I immediately stopped the recording, shut the program down & restarted it. Audio/video were again in sync and I was able to copy the remaining video with no issues. I'm hoping this solves my problem & this brings my rating back to 5 stars.
UPDATE - I have now been using this for a week and I have not had any additional issues with the audio/video being out of sync. I did contact the manufacturer and they sent me a next day response with a few more suggestions on fixing the issue. I haven't applied any of their suggestions since the syncing issue has not returned as long as I don't skip through any video while recording. I'm extremely happy with the purchase and hope to use it for many more years to come.
Enter this card. Basically every other capture card that I have used or looked into was built with the idea that you were only inputting this input to your PC because you wanted to stream it or actually capture it in a file somewhere for editing and uploading. Apparently no one just wants to output an input to the PC in a window anymore like the TV tuner cards of old. There are no cards on the market built with the sole purpose of displaying this input on your PC in real time... (I've looked for a couple of years now, so if you find one and respond to this post I would appreciate it)
This card does exactly what I need it to do with minimal continuous lag. And if I see too much lag, I just have to close the program and start it again things are better. The two annoyances that I have with this are 1) the fact that the software makes the picture darker than it would be if directly input to the same monitor. The darkness is not unplayable, just you have to turn up your settings on the console... if you can. 2) The software itself. The software is obviously geared at capturing and/or streaming instead of playing your system in a window. This ends up creating lag when doing things in other windows particularly watching videos of some sort when they change over between content. (Netflix from one episode to the next for example) During is fine, but the change over causes a couple second display lag on the program. This can be rather unfortunate during an intense part of the game.
Looking at the specs of the card, it has the horsepower to be just a complete pass through to a program window, but there is no 3rd party software that I have found yet that does this with this card. And unfortunately since the card is no longer supported, I doubt it will see an update any time soon.
All in all still worth the purchase because it does what I want it to do and for half the price of the nearest legitimate competitor. Though I am thinking next time I get an Amazon gift card, I'll probably get the Elgato for a comparison and keep whichever seems better.
The way my computer is set up, I need to have my game running in a window. Not by unplugging the PC vga and then plugging in a game console because I have to be using my PC at the same time for multitasking/Googling stuff and whatever.
I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about that, but I had been asking around on forums for quite some time trying to get someone to recommend to me a game capture card that does exaclty that and no one was of any help.
I tried the latest version of the Hauppauge HD PVR game edition since it has like only good reviews, costs more and is called "game edition". But it DOESN'T STREAM IN REALTIME. There is a 5 second delay maing stuff unplayable. That was stupidly misleading.
Now THIS UNIT, the AVERMEDIA Game Broadcaster HD actually does what I wanted.
It streams gameplay in full HD.
It's actually EASY to get to work.
There is NO LAG. The video is pleasingly clear and perfectly playable.
It works in any PCI E slot. It will fit in a 1x OR a 16x slot. This broad range of slot compatibility makes it compatible with almost any motherboard.
The included software works well
The only problem is that when you first turn on something that is already plugged in to the unit, there is a 2 second audio delay (but video is fine). This can be fixed by simply unplugging the hdmi cable and plugging it back in. While this is a slightly annoying issue, it's not that big of a deal since it's easy to fix.
The only thing they could possibly do to make me more happy with this product would be if they made it decode HDCP.
