AVerMedia's Game Capture HD now records 1080p footage

Digital multimedia company AVerMedia Technologies has released a software update for its Game Capture HD standalone HD video capture device. The update implements support for 1080p video at 60 fps. According to the company, this makes the Game Capture HD the first standalone game video capture device in the industry which brings full frame rate progressive video game play. (AVerMedia Game Capture HD, PS3, PSP, Tech, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Getting one today actually, so this is good news.

Unless the software update gets around HDCP, you still can't capture from consoles in 1080p 60fps. Well the PS3 at least. I don't think Xbox has it enabled.

i thought hdcp was for digital interface ie hdmi and dvi.

game capture only uses component which circumvents that iirc.

Yes, that's what capture card do.

Wow 1080p @ 60fps? That sure is the first device to do this, I have a Hauppauge HD-PVR Gaming Edition and Elgato Game Capture HD...and they can only do 1080p @ 30fps. I think I will get this.

Oh great, of course this comes out a week after I got my HD-PVR 2 Gaming Edition.

They need to bring this update to the Live Gamer HD.

Excellent...will have to download the firmware update

It's promising, but it doesn't use HDMI cables from what I was able to see. :(

I'd hold off on this, I just updated mine to 3.0.6 and its no longer working, just a flashing green light, and the remote doesn't work. Theres a chance to get a message saying "Unexpected Error" hit OK to close, but its just frozen there.

Apparently, it's a widespread issue concerning the 3.0.6 firmware. I've heard some say that Avermedia can't even replace the Game Capture HD after the firmware update unless it's under warranty. I also noticed that the 3.0.6 firmware is not available for download anymore from the Avermedia drivers page.

The warning is very much appreciated. I was just about to upgrade my Game Capture HD until I heard other horror stories about the upgrade. It's a real shame that Avermedia let this big update out without testing it thoroughly.

Yea, im pretty sure mine is screwed, iv been in contact with people from AVermedia and their community forum admins, they dont seem to be helping much, just asking for your email and what region your located.
