USB capture device question


#1

I would like to know if these devices are known to produce input lag on composite passthrough. The options I’m looking at so far are the Hauppauge HD PVR, the Avermedia HD PVR and potentially the Roxio Game Capture.


#2

yes.

my setup is xbox -> hauppauge -> playing monitor > hauppauge > via usb to recording monitor


#3

Are you saying the Hauppauge does add additional input lag?


#4

i have no noticeable lag from the hauppauge.

If you’re worried about it, send it through some kind of signal splitter, like a two way composite adapter, or even a vcr if your vcr runs to your tv via coax like mine. Then you can freely use a composite connection without problems.
