post #4771 of 37439

A couple of minutes of research leads me to believe that VirtualDub might be able to capture multichannel AC3 but I'm still looking for documentation. This post also looks promising though we'd again be sacrificing quality, this time the loss would be in running the digital out the card and back in again - http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/278364-Capturing-AC3-Stage-Two

This guy seems to have a list of some possible hardware solutions for capturing 8 channel PCM http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1494661#post1494661

 

Apparently recording 8 channel PCM in Windows or through HDMI just isn't anyone's priority... I'll find somebody with access to an FPGA chip and an oscilloscope if I have to and let them figure it out :)

In b4 vampire erotica... shoot!

 

Now that we're thoroughly off topic, anyone want to do an in-depth on tone balance of CMSS vs DH? I seriously think DH boosts the bass, I've never gotten a bass headache from my Beyers (my sub at high efficiency ceiling>dust conversion levels is a different story) before listening to that test, and on occasion I've tried them with some pretty "thumpin beatz". If the two shift the balance in opposite directions then different virtual surround processing is going to require a different headphone recommendation.

If you want the best quality, you can't beat the Hauppage HD PVR. You'll need a laptop/computer to record though, doesn't have to be a fast one, unless you plan on doing HD video editing. The other option is the Avermedia Game Capture HD, it's basically like the Hauppage but you don't need a laptop. Aver is cheaper, very easy to use, but quality isn't as good as Hauppage. IMO the Hauppage is well worth the premium in price over Aver because of the video quality. Also another issue with the Aver is it has input lag, some people say they don't have that issue though, but one of my friends has both the Aver and Hauppage and he has input lag with the Aver.

 

Here's a video recorded on Hauppage. This guy has one of the best video qualities I've seen.

BTW, hadn't been here in a while and was looking for this thread in the headphone section and couldn't find it. Searched for it and found the new video game forum, nice job on the petition guys!

Lol, I was talking to Riku and he has the Hauppaugue HD PVR. He sent me some vids so I can see the quality. I was sold immediately. It'll be delivered tomorrow. So excited. biggrin.gif

Now to get a working Vegas Pro for editing. @_@

If you need something to play with in the interim you can always get a trial of Adobe Premiere Pro.

You just going to use component then?  Or you do have a way to use HDMI and send component to the Happaupugugueguege?

I'm just gonna use Component. Rather, I'm just gonna use the device when I feel like recording, but for the most part, I'll still be playing my games through HDMI. I bought the Hyppogriph ( biggrin.gif ) mainly because there are times when I wanna show my friends something in a game, but don't have a way to.

That, and when I want to showoff. cool.gif

I'll be getting an intensity pro soon.

post #4782 of 37439

Looks like this thread got moved?

 

I just ordered a pair of Siberia V2s earlier today...for kicks; expecting to be disappointed but we'll see.

 

post #4783 of 37439

Is there a constant debate between Black Magic Intensity Pro vs Hauppaugue HD PVR?

 

The only thing I was told that seems to be a deal breaker is the fact you can't stream through HDMI because of HDCP (I could've sworn that was only exclusive to movies...)  You still can hook up Component though through it, but that's the same as the HD PVR.  Otherwise they're ALMOST identical right?

 

And yes I understand that contrary to popular belief, you can still generate the same video quality(with some very minute differences that nobody really cares) with component as you would with HDMI the only difference being that one is analog and one is digital.

 

Also howdy!  I just registered to ask a couple things.  (I made a topic earlier but .... that topic seemed to have turned out dead unfortunately)

 

I PMed Envy on recommendations for headphones for "all in one package" that is "playing it safe" for someone like me who doesn't really know what his ears really likes yet. (Pure newbie here) This would be on the console mostly single player, as I don't have any competitive shooters on my console, they're all on the PC, but the "playing it safe" is so that there shouldn't be a problem using said headphone on the PC as well.

 

While I'm still debating with myself on it, based on Envy's advice it seems to be an AKG Q701 with a 2011 Mixamp and MAYBE a Fiio E9 added to the sound chain.  There's consistent posts (from chicolom and so on) saying that the Mixamp amps em properly just fine (with voice chat being used even).  But I figured the E9 would add *something* to it, unless people seriously want me to reconsider not getting it if it's just this setup.

 

To tell a bit of history bout myself, my first headphone purchase that costed alot was back in 2009, upon getting the Astro A40 set.  So yeah I didn't know any better back then, but I don't regret it as it made connectivity very convenient for me.  In any case I'm also going to try and see if I can sell this setup at some ridiculously cheap price.  ($100+ maybe?)

 

So yeah even though it's my 2nd, I guess this can be considered a first true purchase on headphones dt880smile.png .

 

@Envy: What's a Hyppogriph?  A google just gives me every single wiki of every RPG that has had one lol.

I don't think the E9 "adds" anything, besides volume.  My M-stage does add something, which was a pleasant surprise for me. 

 

I would 2nd the Q701s (of course k701smile.gif)

 

But I would wait on getting a 2nd amp for double amping unless you know that you need it. 


Last time I checked the A40s had decent resell value, with all the MLG marketing they do.

Lol, Hyppogryph aka Hauppauge. Just messing with the name, because its consistently/constantly butchered by everyone online. Its hard to write or say. Hauppaugegeugbfijfcbsaiujsgey biggrin.gif

I also say that for the purpose of gaming, the E9 doesn't ADD anything, other than feeding plenty of power to the Q701. I don't use it with the Q701/Mixamp, unless I need a bit more juice. Some games do need it for me, and I definitely need when using a mic.
