Epiphan DVI2PCIe Frame Grabber Review
You said that the driver is needed for capturing but the BIOS happens well before loading drivers.
Can you please explain how it's possible?
BTW Avermedia has two capture cards (the C127 and the C985) that are 1/6 to 1/4 the price, and can do the same thing. They capture HDMI instead of DVI though, so they can also record sound over HDMI.
My main use for video capture is game consoles, especially classic consoles. There are very few devices capable of capturing 15KHz RGB video which is a shame since the hardware capable of it is already there (for YPbPr capture). Most of the devices that do support RGB don't handle 240p correctly (treating it as 480i). It's very frustrating how under-served this part of the market is. I currently resort to using a scaler that outputs HDMI + HDMI capture device.
Another one to try is StarTech's PEXHDCAP. This one in fact can capture RGB on the D-Sub port and will handle 240p if you use Micomsoft's software. I have sworn off PCI-E since I downsized to mini-ITX so I haven't got one myself.
