Re: New Member

It works like a charm. Here's the capture device I use, but an HDPVR also works well https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/IPTV_Encoders_as_a_Capture_Device And the channel changer I use https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Controlling_DirecTV_Set_Top_Box_%28STB%29_via_Network I've used this with various "H" series bo...

Re: New Recorder Support

The main chip in mine is the HiSilicon HI3516A. some use the older Hi3516. There are of course numerous other chips for things like the HDMI interface, Ethernet, etc. Here's the sales spec sheet for the HiSilicon chip -- http://www.ipcameramodule.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Hi3516A-Professional-H...

Re: New Recorder Support

The chip specs says is won't work.
I suspect that strange things will happen due to insufficient bandwidth in key components but I don't honestly know.

Re: New Recorder Support

I decided to take this one on myself.

Using the current 0.28 preview, I built a working system using the IP/TV support, some of the standard event scripting features, and one of the APIs.

The how-to write-up is now posted in the wiki

( http://www.oupree.com/OPR-NH100-1-Channel-HDMI-Encoder.html) . Overall the picture quality seem rather good ( not perfect ) b...
