Quick set-up of Dscaler 4.1.6 and an SAA7130 capture card (pb tv-100/lifeview 2000) It seems to be the avforums our bargain performance card of the moment, needed to watch TV, games consoles or Laserdiscs via the HTPC without a digital freeware tv card or expensive holo3d alternative at about 15x the price. This is a great capture card and it works very, very well with Dscaler, with the several users we have with this card on this forum, we should be able to get it working really nicely. I thought it would be a good idea for a reference thread on the two together as I think it's as much a no-brainer as a Radeon for HTPC graphics at the moment. Thanks again to John Adcock, Tom Barry, Atsuhsi Nakagawa and the rest of the great Dscaler team for some wonderful software, surpassing anything the manufacturers can even seem to dream of! Note: Remember 4.1.6 is an alpha software release from dscaler.org, so it may crash or work oddly when changing some settings. If it does, I just close it, reboot and try again. It doesnt happen often and these settings will probably be done one, tweeked for an hour and left forever! Once set-up I have found it very, very reliable, just dont touch the Source menu! Step 1. I like to set the Pixel Width to its max at 768 as it smoothes some of the pixilation that I notice at the what I think is the default of 720. [aw stuffit!, I've got loads of screen grabs and they don't work too well for me here, so I've uploaded a .htm file] [huge snip!] Hop to http://homepage.ntlworld.com/rob.screene/Dscaler saa713x/Dscaler Saa7134 lifeview 2000 pc tv-100.htm for the 14 steps to HTPC happiness! John, if I've made any silly mistakes or you can shed some more light on the saa713x with Dscaler, I'm sure we'd all benefit. Thats it. Im just learning the latest Dscaler alpha release and its SAA7130 driver, so any comments, experiences or suggestions appreciated. regards, Rob.
