Hi folks, first post here, my apologies if this problem has already been solved in the thread. But it's a huge thread and I can only think of so many ways to search it, ha.
My issue is this:
After wrestling with it a bit, I now have my 1512 capturing cracked HDMI with correct AC3 audio from a Cisco STB. I can do this through Capture and WinTV 8, though I prefer WinTV 8 because it seems a lot less buggy. Every time I open Capture, I cross my fingers that it will do anything. BUT, Capture has one important item I can't find in WinTV 8: the bitrate adjustment! Capture allows me to grab at 0-14Mbps, variable or constant, whereas WinTV seems content to use a default of VBR ~9000. It's good enough, but it could be better, especially because I'm capping sports. The bitrate settings in Capture are only for that software, and don't seem to stick to the hardware.
So: Does anyone know how to adjust the bitrate the 1512 uses while recording in WinTV?
