i just installed windows on my upgraded PC build, and I was expecting my capture card to work, but NOPE. as it turns out, AverMedia actually ENDED SUPPORT for the capture card I have so it does not work properly on versions of windows higher than 1909. They will not be updating the drivers to fix it
great, i now have a useless capture card.
I'm gonna have to cancel my upcoming streams until I find a temporary workaround for this, until then, i'm going to have to buy a new capture card
i'm really fucking pissed off at avermedia right now
anyway would anyone be willing to donate me any money to buy a new capture card that isn't an avermedia one because fucking hell
had two people suggest the Elgato HD60S, if there aren't any other reasonable options i'm gonna start a fundraiser so i can get my card replaced with this one
this one costs a lot of money but it looks like it'd be able to serve me far better than the avermedia one ever did. I'd assume connecting it directly to the pcie also means the latency will be far better too https://www.amazon.co.uk/Elgato-Game-Capture-HD60-Pro/dp/B014MQIVPS/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=elgato+pcie&qid=1602902280&s=computers&sr=1-3
i wonder if i can get one cheaper second hand
seems they go for about £100 refurbished, not too bad!
@Violet do be aware that the hd60s can only capture hdmi. their slightly older hd60 can be found on ebay, and it can do hdmi as well as component, composite, and s-video
@Felthry ergh that's a shame. I only have HDMI devices anyway but this is gonna be a huge drawback if I plan on doing retro console streaming in future
@Violet the HD60 is still perfectly functional last we streamed (which was a few months ago)
@Violet oh hang on i mixed things up, it's the game capture HD, not the HD60 that has the analog video support
@Felthry I think i'll just stick to the HD60, i'd rather get a newer device than an older one just to be sure it lasts. If i ever need analogue video in future i'll probably hack up a solution
@Violet Completely understandable!
@Violet oh yeah, if it's connected via pcie, there will be almost no latency at all; you can honestly just play the game via the capture card unless it's a game that demands extremely perfect latency
@sharkNserg exciting to know!
