...so I turned to the obvious source for Intellivision knowledge. I have a channel on Twitch TV on which I've been streaming for over a year, and finally got the chance to stream my new Intellivision II (bought from Ebay, after losing my Intellivision II, Sega Master System, TRS-80 and NES during a move. Not a good time in my household when I discovered that loss.). I've confirmed that the Intellivision, which has an AV composite jack mod built in, works great when attached directly to the composite in of my TV/monitor
The problem is I haven't been able to find a device to get it to the computer for streaming purposes. I have an Avermedia Live Gamer Pro, but even when using a composite to HDMI adapter, the LGP doesn't seem to have the ability to process the low resolution signal put out by the Intellivision...the best I get is an occasional static-picture on the computer, but that's it (though it should be noted that the HDMI pass through of the LGP does work to transfer the signal to the TV/monitor--so again, no problem with the adapter or the LGP). I've tried a Diamond One Touch Video capture device (which has composite input jacks), and that got me closer--I can get perfect audio--but the image is in black and white (and even that requires tweaking, switching the capture device to be recognized by the computer as PAL-M rather than the NTSC M I would have expected). Finally, no streaming program has worked--Xsplit, OBS, RECentral, even the EZGrabber software which came with the Diamond.
I can't afford to bankrupt myself buying every capture device under the sun, so I'm hoping someone here can help. In sum:
1. The Intellivision II itself seems to be working fine when directly output to the TV/monitor via the composite jacks.
2. The LGP can pass through the HDMI signal (via my composite to HDMI adapter) to the TV/monitor, but can't register the console on the computer itself.
3. The Diamond can get perfect audio and black and white video, but no color video, and requires some tweaking to do that much.
I streamed some games of Cloudy Mountain, Treasure of Tarmin and Hover Force the other night using a webcam to capture my TV/monitor, but obviously the quality there is horrific. Can anyone help me get this awesome console into the streaming world?
