As Wild Camping is a knowledgeable and resourceful site I ask this question which I was asked by a family member
Q How can I capture video at 1080p (HD) from a Humax DigitalVideoRecorder (hdmi out) and transfer it to a PC?
I immediately looked up video capture cards and have been overwhelmed by the sheer number plus the reviews which are 'fabulous bit of kit' followed by 'total rubbish' product, I'm sure many of you must have captured tv from DVR to PC.
Any one have any recommendations? preferably under £100
I don't know if this is of any help but, I often transfer video from my helmet cam (Drift Ghost), using its small HDMI port, with a HDMI to USB cable, connecting the USB to the computer, downloading the video onto an external 1 Terra hard drive, and then using Open Shot, a free editing programme to edit, adding sound and special effects.
I also have a dashcam in the motorhome, but I am able to remove the memory card and place into the computer.
I am not a computer nerd, but this system works (just) for me.
I too do the same with my dashcam
Open shot sounds interesting
Thank you for your comments
A site for you to have a look at:
Audio Video Home Entertainment Resource and Community | AVForums
I have a couple of Humax Foxsat HDRs and they are patched with Raydon's software, available on site for free.
Your model may not be patchable but register on the site, have a look and ask questions. An incredibly knowledgeable chap called grahamlthompson will be able to help you - he helped me a lot.
Both my machines record and play HD recordings . . . and I can copy video files to my laptop or usb stick.
Also look at: My Humax Forum
