Compro E900F: component input
I have a Compro E900F, a TV card which also has component input, composite input and svideo input.
Are there media center softwares that can show this input? (e.g. XBMC via NextPVR, MediaPortal, Windows Media Center...) Or am I stuck with the Compro software for showing it?
Long story behind it:
I've come to realize that I should connect my htpc directly to my projector, as it supports more than my receiver (receiver has hdmi 1.2 in, 1.1 out and does not support 1080p input, deep color, hdmi 0-255 range, etc.). I'll connect the htpc via optical to it (for the digital formats supported by the receiver) and also using 5.1 analog.
As there is only one hdmi cable from the position where the receiver/htpc are to the projector, I cannot connect the receiver to a second intput on the projector. This makes that I cannot show the OSD of the receiver. This is not often necessary, so it is not a feature that is frequently needed, but it would be nice to be able to display it without having to reconnect cables (a hdmi switch is an option, but I'm not sure the rare use justifies the cost). So I thought of connecting the receivers' composite output to the input of the tuner card, and displaying it that way...
I still need to decide on a media center, and consider - in order of personal preference: WMC (with MediaBrower/MPC-HC), MediaPortal, XBMC. But this would be another argument for one over the other; I'm quite sure all of them suit my other needs, so it boils down to features and personal taste.
