Just read a post that recommends disabling bus mastering to enable my Matrox vid cap card to capture in YUY2 format....just wondering what the down side is...
God - might I add its a reall bugger trying to get this card (G200) to work in Win2KPro since its not supported by Matrox under that OS..."no more drivers to be written".
Advantages of it....TVin/out via SS-Video or composite, TV tuner with ability to record at full broadcast spectrum in MJPEG format at only 3.1MBps...(or the YUY2 at 20MBps if you really want supremo qulaity)...this is a very handy format and with the cards you can have TVout from Windows Media player thought going to 640x480 TVout format in conrtol panel....very snazzy and the capture on this computer goes through 100ft of composite cable to the loungroom TV.
I make miniDVD's at 5Mbps from this stuff + my computer tuner - that play at better quality from my setop box than the orginal looked on the TV....very reluctant to give all this up....
So - what happens when you disable bus mastering?
