Hi, I'm new to the forums, and I had a question about what video capture hardware I needed for my purposes. If there is are threads out there that you think I should read, please don't hesitate to let me know, I do not mind reading them (but if they're long threads please at least tell me which pages to look at...I'd rather not read through 14 pages just to get to the 15th page with relevant info). I also could not find my question answered elsewhere.
So without further ado, here is my question:
I would like to record gaming footage from my Xbox 360. For those of you who do not know, the Xbox has Yellow Red White (RCA?), Component, and HDMI outputs. My requirement for the footage is that it should capture at around 30 fps, definitely not fewer than 20 fps. There cannot be any discernible lag while actually using the device...i.e., if I am playing I still need it to function at 60fps and have no input lag regardless of what fps it actually saves the video at.
I currently have a computer that is hooked up to the TV through HDMI, it has an AMD 4850e (2.5ghz), 4gb RAM, lots of HD space, and a AMD 780g chipset mobo, with a Hauppauge WinTV 1800. I have Vista x64 and may possibly upgrade to Windows 7 x64.
This current setup fails in that I get way too much input lag from the S-Video input.
I am not averse to purchasing new hardware, or using something completely separate from my computer.
The only information I have found so far that is related to my problem is in the Guide to Building a HD HTPC (under Capture Device) (sorry I can't post a link, I don't have a large enough post count).
Thanks in advance
