Better quality capture hardware / software.
« on: October 02, 2005, 12:10:42 PM »

Hi,

Food for thought:

A capture system with better video quality
than the current VA11A hardware and/or
driver would be great.

I have a WinTV-PVR USB2 recorder that
provides much better capture quality with
the same wired camera. My problem there is
that I cannot capture video on X10 events as
with iWitness. I realise that the WinTV
hardware is about twice the cost but I would
be willing to pay for the extra quality.

I recently upgraded one of my X10 color
cameras. I briefly considered the 'Vanguard'
camera as a substitute. I bought a third
party's camera, mainly because, spending
$500+ on a camera puts you
into 'professional' video territory. The
VA11A seems poor at capturing high quality
video. Why pay for a 'professional' camera
when you can only capture 'average' video?

By the way, I would like to know what was
used to record the video on the 'Vanguard'
camera web page. It sure wasn't a VA11A, at
least not like mine.

Regards,

Ken

i agree, with the sentinel running analog to a tv or vcr the picture quality is great, through the VA11A it is terrible. im thinking a 4 channel capture card is the ticket

Since you are new here (and possibly new to any message board) please refrain from typing in all CAPITAL LETTERS!!!!  It's considered shouting.

All capital messages are also harder to read and are less likely to get responses.
