[Canada Computers] EVGA XR1 Capture Device, Certified for OBS, USB 3.0, 4K Pass Through, ARGB, Audio Mixer $169.99 After PM w/ ME $159.99

Targeting streamers and gamers, EVGA threw in some ARGB lighting. The XR1 is also completely plug-and-play, so it doesn't require any drivers to operate. Once it's connected to your machine, you're ready to set up a new stream in OBS. The card connects via USB 3.0 Type-C connection. For video input and capturing audio, the XR1 uses HDMI 2.0 and supports up HDR at up to 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (fps). The XR1 also has a feature called Advanced Pass Through. By pushing the button on the top of the box, you can switch to this mode, which outputs video to meet a 144 Hz refresh rate, while maintaining 60 fps 4K. According to OBS, certified devices are put through a series of tests to ensure complete compatibility with their platform. At the moment, the XR1 card is the only device certified by OBS.

Is there a way to use this to capture old home videos from a camcorder? I imagine I would first need an RCA to HDMi converter?

You can just buy a capture card with rca inputs for $40 off, amazon. Works great with OBS and pretty easy to use

This doesn't do 4k recording, only pass through. The actual max recording resolution is 1080p@60.

You can get a separate composite -> HDMI converter and HDMI -> USB 3 capture devices for less than $20 from Aliexpress if you're not in a rush.

I got these two, paid a little more for the capture device since it has an HDMI out https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001165 ... 4c4dpob1R7, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000595 ... 4c4dpob1R7

My problem is finding a cost-effective 8mm camcorder, since they seem to be rising in value.

^thats an important thing to note imo.

Additionally (speaking of what resolutions it actually works at), the advanced passthrough mode only does 1440p@144hz. So if you're getting a 1080p@60fps recording out of 1440p@144fps gameplay, you'll have some weird 66% downscaling in the picture quality and likely some judder in the fluidity of the playback recording due to indivisible frame rate reduction (144 does not divide by 60 cleanly).

Is this what I would use to capture television shows so I can watch them later? Sort of a PVR?
