Hi Folks, Going through a bit of a rough patch and could use another set of opinions, These are what i have
Capture card was working fine but with previous probs with Ir Receiver on GPIO the V4L wasn't really used much, so im now wondering if a USB3 would benefit the build due to the faster bandwith handling as i noticed a bit of lag in the LEDS last night when using usb capture - This lag is not there on Platform Capture.
Splitter - man what a POS that is, spent hours last night diagnosing why it wouldn't power up, turns out it powers up as expected when there is nothing plugged in or only 1 device plugged in regardless of cable position or type, sometimes powers up but mainly doesn't, as you can imagine when it refused to power up and the other half wants to watch the tv it becomes a major problem, so im guessing you get what you pay for. do these look like a better replacements for them
I had a quick look into a semi decent USB recorder with a pass-though to bypass the splitter completely but I couldn't find a semi decent looking on that wouldn't be a Chinese clone that could be a hit or miss if it actually works as expected plus the branded ones are a small fortune.
