If you’ve tried your capture card with your OSSC please report if it works or not here. If you’ve tried different line multiplication modes, even better.
So far we’ve got:-
Elgato Game Capture – Incompatible (Tester – HDL)
Magewell HDMI Capture – Compatible but issues with RGB NES (tester Wyrm)
Micomsoft SC-512N1-L/DVI – Compatible (various reports)
Startech USB3HDCap – Compatible at 3x (Tester – Mythic)
Keep the reports coming in!

240p: 2x, 3x and 4x works fine in both TX HDMI and DVI. Passthrough works fine in TX HDMI; TX DVI results in a squished image with only the left half of the screen visible. 5x doesn’t work on any TX modes. ALL TESTED IN GENERIC 4:3 MODE.
480i: Passthrough, 2x and 4x works fine in TX HDMI. TX DVI recognizes 2x and 4x fine; Passthrough results in squished image with left half of screen visible. 3x in all modes only shows top half of screen.

Hello! I am PLEASED to say that with version 0.77 the device now WORKS with the Avermedia LGHD on default settings!!!!
This is fantastic as this is a VERY reliable and common card to own!
More tests will have to be done to find its limitations!
Tested this with my modded N64. Works GREAT! Better than my Elgato HD60 PRO I think.

@desertpogona I’d be really interested in any of your findings on Avermedia’s LGHD card. I picked up a LGHD2 to stream console content and decided to pre-order an OSSC to pair it with. I haven’t found much information about how well they pair together so anything you can provide would be invaluable to meAugust 16, 2017 at 4:22 PM #14454
I’ve tested two external capture devices with the v1.5 OSSC (audio board installed) and thought I’d share my results. I am using HD Retrovision’s SNES & Genesis cables and OBS for broadcast and recording. These are the only consoles I’ve tested.
· The Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket worked well in 3X mode for streaming and video capture. My settings are Generic 4:3, .77a firmware, HDMI TX, and everything else default. 4X and 5X did not work.
·The El Gato HD60 (not the Pro) would only work in 2X mode using the same settings as above for streaming and video capture. 3X, 4X and 5X all gave me an error saying the resolution was not supported
· ASUS VG248QE PC monitor – 2x, 3x, 4x worked
· Sony Bravia – 2x & 3x worked
· Samsung UN50JU6500 – 2x & 3x worked
The signal on the Genesis seems to cut out a little between screen transitions (there are no issues during gameplay, menus, or cut scenes just the transitions between them). It’s not a big issue as the displays I’ve tested are just black a little longer than normal. However, when this happens using the El Gato I briefly get a “No Signal” screen before recognizing the signal again. This is ok if you’re just capturing footage but it’s jarring when streaming. The Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket behaves like my monitor/TV and does not show a “No Signal” message during recording or streaming.
I did not have the “No Signal” issue using the El Gato with the SNES but the drawback is it only supporting 2x mode.
Here are some footage examples (please excuse commentary and poor gameplay at times). Despite YouTube’s process and upstream limitations I think the footage still looks quite good. Also, the El Gato video will have a 720p 60fps option on YouTube but the signal was just upscaled from the 480p signal received in 2x mode at 60fps when broadcasting with OBS.

· Genesis Footage with El Gato HD60 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uf4KqxbKj7s&t=1540s
I don’t have footage to provide of the PVR Rocket paired with the Genesis or the El Gato with the SNES but will in the future.
I hope this helps people visiting the forum and I will do my best to answer questions.August 23, 2017 at 9:01 PM #14717
HD Video Capture Pro as reviewed here:- https://www.videogameperfection.com/2017/08/23/video-capture-review/
Works in 3x and 4x modes.September 21, 2017 at 7:04 PM #15258
captured some pc engine games via component cable to OSSC. Only using the basic settings at the moment but I noticed during areas where the screen goes white I get a tint of green that appears at the top part of the screen See the Konami Logo from 0:05 and from 5:10 which strangely makes me feel I’m looking at a CRT. Also Detana Twinbee on the pc engine I CANNOT get a picture signal although the audio comes through fine.
