I have a website featuring musical guests from the Tonight Show. I edited most of them and shrunk the size down to speed up dowloads. However, all the pictures on the "Non-Taylor Musicians" page are uncompressed. The only change was that the Hipix app creates a .bmp, and I converted that to a .jpg with Paint Shop Pro.
I was especially interested in looking at 1080i pics, however, to see how well they handled the interlacing. Overall they look great, nowhere near as noticable as NTSC captures, so it seems to do a great job.
Anything I need to be wary of when getting this card?
The site actually belongs to a member of the forum, feldon23. I just helped take some screen shots. I just want to make sure I don't take credit for his site.
As far as the HiPix is concerned, I loved this card so much that I bought a second card and built a dedicated computer for HD viewing, recording, and archiving. I use the Pioneer DVD burner and cheap media (approx 70 cents a disc) to archive shows I really like. It's great to be able to watch HD material any time you want.
There is also a DVD add-on that will upconvert your dvd's to 1080i. It does take some patience to get it to work but it is awesome.
