Capture card with cx25843 chip but no mpeg2 encoder?


I'm looking for a capture card with the cx25843 chip. I've seen many but they all have an extra chip for mpeg2 encoding. Is there any card without mpeg2 encoding and only the cx25843 chip?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards

If there is a capture card w/0 mpeg2 I couldn't find it.

I looked on Tiger Direct, Newegg and Best Buys websites; not dice; sorry-

You could try calling Hauppauge and ask if they design a card w/o mpeg2.

Another company that manufacturer's capture cards is a co. call Startech-

Is it just me or is it getting harder to find the right hardware that you need?

Perhaps too late, but I think the Avermedia A301 (mpcie) card might be a candidate if you like a bit of hacking (and are not too literal about the cx25843 being the only chip).

The A301 has a cx25843, but uses a cypress fx2 for (usb) traffic.
I don't believe it has any mpeg encoder chips.
And, it sells for peanuts on ebay (< $10)!

It only uses the usb pins, none of the pcie stuff, and can easily be converted into a "pure usb" card. It also has pcb pads for what probably/possibly is s-video.
(Obviously, it also has an antenna input used for analog/DVB-T signals)

On the downside; no linux driver exist. So unless someone writes one, or are willing to hold my hand if I should try it, the card may not be terribly useful.

Hot chocolate peace!
