Not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but thought I would try here...

I have been trying to spec a PC-based DVR Surveillance System using AMD but have had some difficulty. It seems that most, if not all DVR cards available on the market today for this purpose are spec'd for Intel systems, and not for AMD.

I was hoping that somebody out there might have some experience (first hand or otherwise) in building this type of system using AMD. If so, and you could provide the system spec, the hardware details, and issues you had to overcome, and-or and issues you still have, it would be much appreciated.

The surveillance system spec would be:
- 8-16 outdoor surveillance colour-B&W (night) cameras;
- each camera @30fps @min. 480 lines, captured at a resolution of 720x480;

I've looked at ILDVR boards, Geovision boards, Avermedia,as well as a number of others. Geovision (1480) seems to offer the best alternative so far, but their recommended system is Intel, claiming they have little to no experience using an AMD based system.

Perhaps some of you have some insight, experiences, and information that you could share.

Thanks,
b

I have built some DVRS with a company called eyemax. I used their 120fps card with an AMD chipset. Also they carry a 480fps card your looking for but it costs around $1900. I think its called the Hera 480.

Thank you djamwolfe for your response.

Is it possible to let me know the specs for the system that you had built using the card you identified, i.e. the motherboard (mfr, model#), the amd cpu (model, socket), the vga (mafr, model#), the ram (mfr, amount, type, latency), the hdd (mfr, model, sata/pata), OS, soundcard (mfr, model#), and if you ran into any issues with respect to the implementation.

This would be very helpful.

Thanks again.

The only thing I have seen on this was on the Microsoft forums where a Microsoft certified specialist with Windows MCE said that a 1.5ghz P4 was equal to an athlon 3.0ghz for a PVR. Sounds wrong to me though, maybe MS bias against AMD...?

I agree, it certainly sounds a bit like a bias.
Perhaps somebody with some actual experience with a DVR or PVR would be able to set the record straight for all of us, and tell us if an AMD-based PC can function well as a DVR system for surveillance purposes, or even for PVR purposes.
If you're out there, please let us know.

Thanks,
