This may not be too exciting but I hooked
a Sencore HDTV demo box (using chan 14 output)
to my HiPix card and was able to record
just fine. This had some Mitsubishi demo clips
used for an in store demo.

The Sencore is a "black box" (PC guts inside)
that has an LCD front panel and one
8VSB/ATSC output on the back designed to
drive a bunch of HDTVs for demo purposes.

PVR,

You would't happen to have an overscan test pattern in your Sencore would you? I have been looking for an overscan pattern hipix file for a while.

No, sorry - no test patterns in there.

PVR-

I've seen two versions of the Sencore box on their Web site-one with only 'canned' demo material, and another that allows upload of your own video. If you have the upload version, have you considered making your own test material?

(I'm hoping to someday own one of those, to put the first amateur DTV station on the air.)

I don't actually own the box. I borrowed
it to test. It just had canned
demos preloaded on it...
