Currently, my Adaptec Videoh! AVC 2410 card defaults to selecting
Unfortunately there is no GUI or Command line option to change this setting.
The only available option to change this setting is in the generic
"Device properties" checkbox under advanced options.
Then, VLC, brings up a series of dialogs that essentially duplicate the
options you give it.
Finally, it comes up with a dialog that asks you to select the input on
the card (tuner, composite or s-video).
Once I select the "tuner" option, VLC correctly runs.
I would like to add a few options that control the important input
selection options, without which, I can not make an automated recording
script (currently I have to manually select the options each time the
computer boots, and it stays there until I open another program that
uses the card)
I attached a clean and simple patch to add four new module options that
set the crossbar indicies.
--dshow-video-input => p_sys->crossbar_routes[i].VideoInputIndex
--dshow-audio-input => p_sys->crossbar_routes[i].AudioInputIndex
--dshow-video-output => p_sys->crossbar_routes[i].VideoOutputIndex
--dshow-audio-output => p_sys->crossbar_routes[i].AudioOutputIndex
As far as I know, only the first option is absolutely required to get my
card working, but other people may need other options as well. It can't
Although you need to know the index number, it is possible to find the
correct number by using the GUI method (it lists the number for each
item), so this method is intended to be used as a default setting or
from a script. It is still critical that these options exist so I
really hope you add it for the next revision.
