Nice.

My son would love this thing. Anyone know how this compares to the similar "Avermedia Live Gamer Portable" device?

Thanks.

Thanks. Looks good.

I'm still curious about how it might compare to the AVerMedia unit. I'm not sure which one to go with.

Have you guys figured out how to capture 5.1 ac3 via HDMI?

Is there any difference with the Best Buy version?
model 01530: HD PVR Rocket special Best Buy edition
model 01540: HD PVR Rocket and English manual

Any issues editing 18mbps files with VideoRedo?
Thanks.

I haven't used the AverMedia game recording unit, but I did use their larger version of it that had a hard drive in it for capturing Component video. I found that the files recorded on it wouldn't open with any other programs or edit correctly with any software that I have. VideoReDo gets confused by them, as does TMPGEnc Authoring Works. I wouldn't recommend it.

VideoReDo can handle the 18mbps stream files, BUT as we discussed in the 1212 thread it appears that the Hauppauge captures in a slightly unusual format that it struggles with. Sometimes the files will "stop" when you save your edits and won't continue. You can do the "Quickstream Repair" on them and correct the problem (usually), but it's an added annoyance.

Surprised there hasn't been much discussion on this unit. Any owners care to share experiences with using it? Particularly, I'm looking to find out how easy it is to set the capture settings in standalone mode. I would be recording from my Dish STB using component cables in most likely 720p.

It eazy to setup
1: Update the frimware with USB flash drive or any PC/laptop to the latest ver
2: Plug in your Component Cables
3: You can used a USB flash drive I know how big you can go most people I know just used reg 500GB up to 2TB 7200rpm harddrive with self power docking station for harddrive.


If want change any option you will need plug in to PC or Laptop and install Hauppauger Tool form there you can change the bitrate and any other option ocen it save the setting it auto work in stand mode as well.

Thanks, do you know if the settings changes will stay even after it is powered off and used later in standalone mode? Yes, I plan on using a small USB HDD (500GB or so) for capturing, and then edit/convert the files on my desktop. I'm guessing there is no record/pause function to strip commercials (start/stop would create separate files), so I would need to do the commercial editing on the computer?
