Default Looking for A/V tuner solution...


So I'm wanting to get an A/V tuner that is able to decode video in reasonable "real-time;" basically I want to be able to control a game system remotely by feeding A/V into a server via an A/V tuner and stream the video over the network. I tried getting a $12 device but the colors were all messed up and there was a significant lag, making gameplay difficult since it relies on real-time. First of all, I should ask, is there a card out there that will eliminate the lag, and even if there is, my second question is: is my desired setup feasible? I mean even if I am able to eliminate the lag from the A/V tuner, would there be a significant delay due to the network lag?

Thanks in advance,

If you could get rid of the card lag you should be able to cut down on the network lag as well. I have a question though, when you say "real time" how much of a delay are you counting on. The delay from a tuner would be about 3 seconds and depending on speed and distance on the network you could be looking between 1 - 10 seconds. I would look into getting a better than $12 dollar card. Maybe look into the $30 range and you will cut the time down a bit.

The hacker mindset doesn't actually see what happens on the other side.
