From browsing the ffdshow FAQ, it looks like most of ffdshow's capabilities are geared for DVD playback. I really don't need to improve my DVD PQ, as on my 32" screen, it looks quite sharp to me. But what about live analog TV or even playback of analog recorded TV programs. I found this quote :
I am unsure as to how to make it work with my PVR-250. I went to the VirtualVCR website, and they tout support for "WDM" drivers; not sure if the PVR-250 supports or comes with those, or whether it uses "VfW" drivers, which are not supported by VirtualVCR. Anyhoo, if not VirtualVCR, does anyone know of any solution for the PVR-250 that would allow use of ffdshow [or equivalent] PQ enhancer.
