Hi all,

 

I'm relatively new to watchout and I'm wanting to capture an HDMI video signal into my presentation. 

 

I'm using a consumer level record/capture device and I'm hoping I can get this working with the Watchout display machine without having to splash out for more hardware (the license keys have blown my budget for the next few months!).

 

I am using an AVerMedia H727 card. I have success in being able to input an analogue signal via the Composite signal, but any Digital inputs are not present in Watchpoint. 

 

Windows 7

SSDs

AMD Raedon HD7900 Graphics Card

 (Watchout optimised system).

 

Does anyone know of any tweaks in the driver settings perhaps that might allow this through?

 

My guesses are either that being consumer, the HDCP lockdown is so great that it won't let the signal in without using the card's proprietary software, or the drivers have only been set up with the Directshow API to allow an analogue input.

 

Hopefully there is a genuis out there in Watchout land that may be able to help?

 

Cheers 

 

Luke

How is capture set up in WATCHOUT?

What is your source?

As far as I know has this card, AverMedia H727, never been tested by us.

Capture is set up as a camera via add media. I have tried all devices in watch point, and all options in the options menu for the media item. Digital/HDMI doesn't even appear as an option to assign to devices.

I have tried a Sony NX5p camera with HDMI out directly and a laptop output as devices.

Currently Watchout is only accepting a composite video on this capture card using another input on the same card.

I followed the instruction manual to the letter to add land assign live video to the timeline.

I mean the specific settings in the Live input settings.

You also need to now what your source output are ie [email protected] or similar.

A PC as capture through a video capture card must be setup at video resolutions.

My Bad!

 

Input Device: 1

Signal: HDMI:1

Vid Standard: 720p

Deinterlacing: None

Width: 1280 Height: 720

 

All settings matching from input to output. 

 

-----------------

 

UPDATE.

 

Thanks for your help Jonas. I have got it going now! I needed to select the Secondary Analogue Input in Watchpoint, then configure the Video in the production software to recognise the video signal as "S-Video" as opposed to HDMI.
