Video Capture/ VIVO?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking into getting set up for video capture from my XBox. I'm not sure what video capture card to get and was hoping for suggestions and guidance on what to look for.

Also I noticed that XFX makes a VIVO version of the 7900GT, I think I have the non VIVO, my main clue is that I don't have the cabling. So I was wondering what the differance is between the two version of the card (VIVO vs Non-VIVO).

 

I google'd "video capture" and ended up on halo.bungie.org reading a guide that claimed that if the xbox is directly connected to the capture device you would then be limited to short recordings. Is that true, and if so how short?

 

Thanks for your help.

I can't be of help in this topic... and my advice is almost completely useless... but before you get a capture device you might want to invest in a new power supply. That is if you wan't to have working components after that PSU blows up/fails.

No offense but you guys should lay off my PSU. Especially in a thread that has nothing to do with power supplies. Mostly what alot of people on here say is just fanboyness towards your GameXStreams. I don't tell my friend to sell his Ford escort and get cavalier every time I see him. Geez.

 

Thanks for your advice David, now say "Uncle".

haha well this forum is based on advice from other valued and informed members of the community, and your PSU, quite frankly, is rubbish.

 

And there's no "fanboyism" if that's even a word, OCZ is tried and tested the best PSU maker on the market...

If you want advice round here you should:

1) not get all arsey when someone offers constructive advice, cos one day your PC is gonna blow up and you'll come running here and expect us not to simply laugh in your face cos we told you weeks ago you have a weak component...

 

2) listen to the advice, get a new PSU, and accept advice that you may not have asked for, but was given in the best intentions....

 

back to topic, a VIVO card has an extra socket on the back, like a black round thing... i got cables with mine, but i don't think they'd be that hard to get if you DO have the VIVO...

I only got a HDTV cable, and i'm not sure about that extra socket, i have a S-Video port, i don't know if there is something different, or what your trying to describe. So I'm pretty sure my card isn't VIVO, so any suggestions on capture cards.

Again thanks for the on topic advice, for real this time. Here I'll edit my sig to fix the problem.

 

I didn't mean to get arsey, if that even is a word.

(PV-T71G-UDL (R,7)), 470Mhz no VIVO.
