Hi, last year I bought the HD PVR, and HDFury2 (but just upgraded to HDFury3 due to Fury2 having a green line on top of screen and faint diagonal interference looking lines during light colour scenes), I use them to capture SkyHD, mainly 1080i, some 720p, usually at max 13.5mbps.
I've been using the bundled software CD disc, version 2.5 all this time, which has TME software version 126.96.36.199, all seems to work pretty well and stable for the past year, so I never thought about updating, but I've done some searches and I know that the Video proc amp setting (brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, sharpness etc) for this software version doesn't work, or "not enabled" in this version, so I've not been able to change anything, right now it's 134 for brightness, and 128 for the other 4 settings, all default.
at the default video proc amp settings, I've always noticed the video captured from SkyHD using the (unchangeable) default settings seemed a little brighter than when I connect the SkyHD box directly using HDMI to TV, and since I've just updated to the HDFury3, I want to make sure everything I capture, the picture quality is as close to the source material as possible i.e. SkyHD 1080i.
So does anybody know does the default settings in this software version match the SkyHD signal exactly? if not what video proc amp settings will match the SkyHD signal? if I need to change the settings I think I'll need to update to another version.
also does anybody know the Colour Depth of the SkyHD signal, is it 16-235? reason I ask is the HDFury3 has a Dip switch which can change the Colour Depth from 16-235 to 0-255, but I want my captures to be as faithful and as close to the source, in this case SkyHD 1080i.
thanks for any info.
