                I've seen the term "video in" mentioned 3 times in this forum, but never discussed, when someone is referring to this do you mean so you can watch//record a video signal through your xbox?

I know it'll never be done though the video connector, so is this trying o be accolplished though usb?

                Dear God no.

Unless you quote the messages I'm assuming they mean video in to their TV or amp and out from the XBOX.

                Some people have "theorized" about how to turn the Xbox into a TivO, by having video in, then somehow recording onto the hard drive...

but as of now it's basically impossible; it's about four hundred thousand times easier to either buy a TivO, or a video in card for your PC.

 Would it be possible to use the ATI USB TV TUNER and plug that into the xbox through a standard usb port? Sureley someone must be using this thing on Linux so there has to be drivers out for it, SO in at the least you could watch TV if you booted into linux, and maybe copy the video files over for XBMP to use.

I'm just guessing here

Well yeah, but take into consideration the price of a USB TV Card, the new HD for the Xbox to store videos and.... BUY A TiVO  wink.gif

 i was under the impression that the video connector on the back of the xbox was labled "VIDEO INPUT/OUTPUT" is this in error?

surely if you could get video from a SCART or composite etc source then someone could write a prog to record it...?

i think if this is a do-able idea then so many more people will get invloved with this kinda shtuff

 NO VIDEO INPUT EXISTS for xbox

the ONLY [practical] way would be to use a USB tv input device and have linux drivers running

 Absolutley, I looked into this last week BUT your major problem is going to be video quality, because xbox is 1.0 usb your not going to be able to capture the video at very good quality at all, on a side note, XBMP is trying to implement snapstream streaming so you could watch tv on your xbox, via your pc but again, I dunno what kinda quality your gonna get. I gave up on the "try to make something like tivo" and just bought a tivo, and then used the server hack so I could use it in canada.

 I see, USB1, its about 11mbs am I right?

I see the problem now, I have never caputured video using this device. I have the PCI version in my PC so I use that as I couldnt net S-Video to work on the USB thing.

So its useless to me, unless I can get my xbox to use it...

When you say low quality, what are we talking?

Crappy frame rate?
Small Resolution?

Cant anything be done??

 USB 1.0 ~ 1.5 megabytes/sec
      1.1 ~ 8 megabytes/sec


------as I understand it
