  1. Hey I was trying to record a show on Hauppauge HD PVR 2 1512 model with 5.1 audio.

    I compared this with my Elgato, the colours are different. I mean Elgato has lossless colour range, while Hauppauge has a horrid looking colour range.

    Here's a comparison:

    Hauppauge:

    Elgato:

    I can tell that Elgato did a lot better coluor correcting than Hauppauge. I tried to set the colour settings on Hauppauge to match Elgato, but didn't go well.

    Here's the Hauppauge settings that were default on the capture software:
    Brightness: 14
    Contrast: 58
    Saturation: 60
    Hue: 49
    Even though the Hauppauge raws on the media info says BT.709, but i think the colours are BT.601.

    Can anyone help me solve this problem?

  2. One is rec.601, the other rec.709. One is being converted correctly to RGB, the other not.

    Of course. Seems that it's all Hauppauge's fault.

  4. All you have to do is force your editor/player to use the correct matrix.
