Re: Video Input Card for viewing/recognition on 2nd PC
Quote: You want to take the desktop (whole screen) of PC 1 and display it on PC 2?
Yes. Quality is only slightly important since I'll be OCRing text and some images only. But it needs to be a live feed in real time. The avermedia card below and software definitely hints at being able to accomplish what I need, but I can't hook it up where it's recognized by the main PC's video card as a valid output (like a monitor/TV).
I installed the Avermedia card mentioned, in the 2nd PC where I need the video sent. It has HDMI inputs, and clearly pulls video from my DVD players via dongle quite well. However, hooking the first PC's video card's HDMI to the avermedia input does not get recognized. Clearly it's looking for a monitor or TV, etc. Is there any way to force clone the video card so that it's pushing video through both the DVI and HDMI outputs it has? Or is there a device I can buy, even if it's an actual TV with a video output, that allows for passthrough of video signal. It would need to be recognized by the main video card, which is a standard ATI 4830 with DVI/HDMI outputs.
