Currently the only source that is supported with the AverMedia Optimized Live TV support is COMPOSITE.

It would be EXTREMELY helpful if the ANALOG TV and ATSC(QAM) sources could be supported as well.

Please let me know if this can be added soon.

Thank you
Robert

Robert,

We just went through this - we had promises of HD TV capture but could only get 420p with the mediabox 300 and the dongle.

The resolution we came up with was a small factor PC / an Avermedia PCI card / and a fix to the digitalsignage launch scripts.

In total it came out to be less money than the NUC/Dongle and renders the TV screen division in full HD.  Works Perfect.

We are selling quite a few of these.  I can set you up with something that is ready to go.

Contact me to see if this might work for you.

I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer!

I've been having issues with opening the Full AverMedia Center from within the Signage Player.

I had cases where the AverMedia Center won't automatically start the video and cases where the AverMedia Center doesn't shift along with screen template changes.

I was hoping to utilize the strip-down version that DigitalSignage offers, but it only works with composite and s-video.

make sure you don't use the AverMeida app and instead use our special custom exe we developed for AverMedia!

Your customer special exe only works with composite and s-video input. I need to use the ATSC(QAM), HDMI or Analog inputs.

Can I use ATSC(QAM), HDMI or Analog inputs with your special custom EXE??

We spent a lot of time and money only to have composite / component in and nowhere near HD out.

When it was suggested that we go with a PC and an AVermedia capture card we had what we needed only to find out it would not launch on start up.  The only solution was to send a stop/start command from the DS studio (not a good option as our end users do not have access to the studio - LOL).

No known fix from Digialsignage.com  - so - we spent 13 hours on a weekend to have my team figure it out.  (we wrapped the day around an informal company BBQ - it was fun)

I can provide a digitalsignage loaded, tested, and ready, small factor Window 10 PC with an Avermedia card that launches DS and TV capture correctly on power up for $700.00.   HDMI in / HDMI out.  Simple as that!   Login to your campaign and run with it.

If it works for you keep it - if it does not then send it back for a refund. (what a concept!)

We use these to display an instantly update-able RSS feed above live cable TV capture.  Simple but well received by our clients.

Contact me with needs or any questions:
