Hauppauge WinTV HD PVR (H.264) screenshot - Page 173

post #5161 of 5196
I'm just gonna state the obvious.. but within TME, make sure you don't have the "disable lights when recording" box checked. It might have got reset when you reinstalled the software. I forget for sure where it's located, but remember seeing it at some point in time. You may have an option like that too within Sage???
post #5162 of 5196
Yes they were unchecked. I did find the problem to be with the latest hd-pvr software / driver. Last night I rolled back to 1.0.5.301 which was what I had and all works fine again. Go figure!!!
Thanks

I have been wondering about this product, and I would just like to know something.

When recording the audio, is it limited to just this device, or can you get the audio from an external source, ie. another sound card?

I'm trying to backup my DTS LaserDiscs and since the Hauppauge doesn't support DTS I was hoping I could capture the audio from another source.

You can always remove and add another audio track by re-multiplexing the captured file using TsMuxer (free). Getting the new audio track timed properly with the captured video track may take some work, but TsMuxer has an audio delay adjustment so at least you can try.

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 1.0.9.9, 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.

Where did you get the fury3? I have been looking for one and can't find it anywhere.

thanks, so it confirms that part.

but do you know anything about the video proc amp settings for that CD disc version 2.5, TME version 1.0.9.9? nothing can be changed, does the default settings match the source material? if not how do I find out what settings matches the source material, in my case my SkyHD satellite 1080i signal?

You can't buy them anymore from a US source, and from what I can tell Canada as well, and have not been able to for about a year or so. So for people who live in the US and Canada that want one, they will need to order it direct from the people who make them. So if you still want one, go over to the HDfury website.

Going back a few years I need to ask a question about rctvcap. That is if anybody is still using it besides me.

I tried to send the output to a drive in another machine so in the command line for the file I put \\\
emotehost\\Folder\\filename.ts.

It started up but quickly said:
1/31/2012 1:35:44 PM Set the filename on the dump filter: \\\\homexp\\g:WinTV4\\Test1[DX1].ts
1/31/2012 1:35:45 PM ERROR: The network path was not found.

And yes, the folder is there and shared with 'Everyone'.
Is there a resolution to this???

Map a network drive to it so that rctvcap sees it just like any other local path.

Thanks, I'll learn how to map a drive even tho in near 20 years of PC work I've never found a need. . Always seemed to find a more direct solution. Will do it tho.

It's possible you might find a way to get it to work without mapping a drive, but, IMO, that's the "easy" solution.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb491006.aspx

That should help. You could write batch files to call rctvcap like I do, and add the subst command at the beginning to map it, then when the recording is done use subst to delete it, making the drive mapping temporary.

This might be a little off topic but I can't find a videoredo forum anywhere..
I just started capturing at 13.5kb for burning BD.
When I edit with VRD it finishes with 'max pts underflow' warning. (151ms)
The file was about 10gb/1.45hrs long.
What is PTS underflow?
Thanks.

Looking at their website (http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/prods.html) I see the have a regular hd pvr and a gaming edition hd pvr. The only differences I see appears to be the gaming edition comes with an extra set of component cable and something called Showbiz software for youtube uploads.

Does anybody know of any other differences?

Also, where is the best place to purchase one of these?
post #5177 of 5196
From their website:

Differences between the HD PVR model 1212 and the HD PVR Gaming Edition

There are two versions of HD PVR: the HD PVR model 1212 and the HD PVR Gaming Edition. Here are the differences:

HD PVR 1212 includes a IR blaster cable to control your cable or satellite set top box channel changing. HD PVR Gaming Edition has a Component Video cable for easy connection to an Xbox 360 or PS3.
Both HD PVR and HD PVR Gaming Edition have our "no delay pass through" for recording live TV or video
HD PVR model 1212 contains Arcsoft Total Media Extreme plus Arcsoft Media Convert. Media Convert allows you to change the format of your recordings so you can view them on a iPad or other portable media player. HD PVR Gaming Edition contains Arcsoft ShowBiz with capture and upload to YouTube. A media converter is not included in the HD PVR Gaming Edition.
HD PVR uses a blue record ring to indicate that recording is taking place. The HD PVR Gaming Edition uses a green record ring.


I have the older 1212 version and have used it for years, mainly just for transferring HD video of my old fios box that had a small hard drive in it. It works fine for video game playback recording as well, and if you wanna post it up on you tube, there are many converters out there to do that.

As far as where to purchase.. got mine at Frys. But with a simple google of "HDPVR", it comes up at Amazon, Newegg, Best buy... price range from $180 - $210.
post #5178 of 5196
Thanks man, I ended up going with a normal 1212 from Amazon for $160 and buying the component adapter that I needed separately. Got lucky and saved $20, as they happened to lower the price of the 1212 the day I had decided to purchase.
post #5179 of 5196
So I have had the hd pvr 1212 for a few years, connected to a computer running WHS and use passthrough, rcTVCap etc.

Now, it appears box has gone bad. Passthrough doesnt work, and when I try updating drivers etc in the PC, it says Nothing updated, Compatible hardware not found. The box powers up to a blue light in the front.

Is there an easy way to know the box is gone bad vs something else being the problem?

Thanks in advance

Try another power supply, the one I had was 5V @ 3.0Amps, but the specs only call for 5.0V @ 2.0Amps and I found several of those laying around the house, you might want to try another Power Supply, I had the same symptoms as you and the power supply fixed it. I had a power light, but it did seem just a bit weak at the time.

It's worth a try, you can probably find something you could temporarily try out for a power supply in your equipment.

Pass through should work whether the PC part does or not, my PC is hardly ever on, but the pass through is working 24x7.

The power supply checking is for only when it automatic shutdown after power it up.
There a built in setup firmware for the pass through which gose thur Analog Device ADV7401 for it work with or with out a PC hook up as long there power going to the device and it power on.
post #5184 of 5196
Thanks for all the replies. I have tried it on a different laptop,just by hooking up the post,usb and turning it on without any component cables connected. The information tried installing the latest drivers and it kept saying no compatible hardware. Of,course tried 2 different usb cables as well.
Windows does give a message about a usb port malfunctioning but I don't know if that is just windows 7's say of saying it doesn't recognize the device.
Wrt trying with a different power supply,we're you having trouble right from the beginning? I will look around and see if I can find anything.

Ok then it sound like your hdpvr device may have malfunction and die on you if you seeing that.

So I tried a different power cord thats rated at 5V @ 3amps and now at least when I connect it to a different laptop , and tried updating drivers, it detected the device .

Now will connect it back to my original computer and see how that goes. Thanks!

On a different note, can some clarify if the latest driver 1.7 is both for the PC and the device or only the device? IOW, if I use WHS as my computer to record stuff on, do I have to run the drivers on that computer while the HD PVR is connected to it, or can I update the drivers on a different laptop thats more convenient. The WHS box is sitting in a closet, and I dont know if the latest drivers which mention Vista, Windows 7 etc will work fine if installed on the WHS box.


Thanks again.

The driver is for both. It updates the device and is the device driver on the computer.

I am now back in business, thanks to the new power supply. FWIW, the model # of the power cord is: FSP015-1AD201A in case anyone else gets into the same boat. You can find it on ebay for < $10.

I haven't posted here in a long time since I worked all the bugs out long time ago but anyway I have the 1st generation PVR and all of a sudden i'm "USB Device Not Recognized". I tried unplugging the USB, Power to try to reset but it didn't work. I tried a different USB cable with same result. Power light is on so the unit is getting power i'm wondering if anyone knows a fix for this. I've had this unit since the 1st shipment so I've gotten my money's worth if it's dead just don't wanna buy another one right now
post #5190 of 5196
Same issue for me and also the same cure: new power supply Works great now!
