I want to play wiiu/ps3 in a window on my desktop. will the below work, and do any of you guys do something similar?
that's a capture card for video streaming, and no, it won't do what you're asking for
just fucking plug it into your monitor, what you're trying to do can't be done unless you're directly emulating the console in windows
my 4k tv is fucked and wont run any resolutions lower than 4k, so my pc works fine and all consoles dont. Also, i often play pc games in windows with a browser or something else opens at the same time, so even if my tv wasnt fucked plugging it in wouldn't achieve that
yeah, you can play pc games in a window on your pc because it's a fucking program that runs inside your operating system
a console isn't a program that runs inside your operating system
sucks to be you, fix your 4k tv, or just go buy a cheap 720p monitor for your wiiu/ps3, you've got the disposable income if you've bought and ruined a 4k tv
if a capture card accepts input from a console sufficient to record it, i fail to see how it wouldnt be possible to display that input in a window in real time. i have another tv, but i prefer this one
>being this dumb
Avermedia lets you do it.
>What is input lag
Have fun console bro that capture card should be epic fun and efficient.
i'm not expecting lightning fast responses here. I'm playing jrpgs, not fps and fighting games. When xenoblade x and all the awesome weeb ps3 games get on steam i wont need consoles anymore
Some monitors support picture-in-picture, aside from that its not worth it.
Capture cards are not for this use case, the preview window is for just what you would expect:previewing.
I don't even know why you would want this, who wants to play games in a smaller window?
I use a PVR2 gaming edition and I get a 2 second input lag. But it's using a USB connection and isn't inside my rig. It's possible that using one connected into your pcie could have about a .50ms to 2s lag.
You can straight up just ask on Amazon. Someone will answer you within a day or two.
I'm just saying you want something that just isn't worth it, I already explored this stuff myself, I wasn't satisfied.
Even on huge displays, using a corner of the screen with additional input lag isn't great.
You're essentially just trying to go far to play it on a monitor you're already using, but you'd pretty much just be better off by buying a 1080p monitor to go with it since that will likely be better than any capture card and cheaper too.
yeah, i'm going through the amazon questions for the pci model, and there are answers saying there is no lag and some saying that the lag is unbearable. probably not worth the gamble unless i can find somewhere selling it that accepts returns without factory fault
