Hi All:


Anyone know whether dScaler is compatible with the ATI Rage LT Pro AGP 2X video card? I have seen that dScaler is apparently NOT compatible with the ATI Rage Theater Pro chipset, but I do not know if these chips are in my card.


Thanks in advance!

SFC: not for capturing using that card--you would need another, compatible one. You should be fine for displaying the captured picture with that card, though, if it has 8 or 16MB of video memory.


Good luck.

Thanks Dan!


I have an 8 MB card, and my initial interest is in playback of DVD/other to an LCD projector (not capture). Currently, I am just using the Gateway DVD software (3.02); comments on whether another program + dScaler would provide an even better image?

SFC: perhaps DScaler isn't what you are looking for. DScaler uses a capture card to obtain video (laserdisc, VHS, etc.), deinterlaces it, and then scales it to any required resolution/refresh. It sounds as if your needs require using a software DVD player from an internal DVD drive. This wouldn't require DScaler.

Pardon my ignorance! Sounds like dScaler is the software equivalent of something like the Quadscan and iScan boxes, correct? This is, in fact, something I want to consider. I presume that capture cards allow you to easily switch between inputs?

SFC, you got it right. DScaler allows you to deinterlace analog sources like vcr, laserdisc etc... and makes it a progressive scan video feed for use on data grade projectors, htdv-ready tv sets and such.


See the FAQ at http://deinterlace.sourceforge.net


Your question about switching ; most cards are coming with a composite and svhs input so you can switch at least from those. However, you can use your a/v (pre)amplifier to do the audio and video switching and let DScaler work on whatever the amplifier/switcher gives it.
