View Full Version : Asus DigiMatrix

I have an Asus DigiMatrix box that would make a PERFECT PVR, except for the fact that all the hardware is onboard and non-upgradeable. *http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif I bought it to try with MythTV - which is a bear to set up on non-standard hardware. Just on the off chance, I decided to try some of the Windows based software packages. Snapstream works, but I am very interested in the GB-PVR project, as it seems that ultimately it will be a GREAT piece of software. The capture card in the DigiMatrix is a LifeView 3000, as far as I can tell (software encoding, yech) - and thoughts on supporting this type of hardware? The box is nice because it is so compact and looks like a stereo component. (too bad they didn't put better components in it!) What are your thoughts regarding supporting WDM drivers?

Keep up the good work!!!

I'm unlikely to support this type of video capture device for a long time (if ever). Sorry.

Its a nice looking machine, but unfortunately that capture device lets it down.

How about using the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2 through one of the 8(!) USB ports?

This works, but I can not get the LIVE sound watching TV only the showshifted sound (recorded sound). What could be wrong?
