I can't find the images off hand.. they must be buried in a Forum some place. I've certainly taken pictures of them though.
I do know Linux drivers were attempted and failed a number of years ago assuming it was based on a Connexant chip.. but they have a custom signal processor chip before the decoder which pre-conditions the signal, its also a hardware crossbar processor.
The line was called the Marvin Pro (Avid Liquid Pro BOB) Marvin (700-USB) and Marvin-Lite (500-USB)
The Marvin Pro has 5.1 sound and component inputs, AV in/out to its crossbar
The Marvin dropped the 5.1 and component, but retained AV in/out to its crossbar
The Marvin-Lite dropped AV out from its crossbar
But they all seemed to have that signal pre-processor chip, it is quite massive.
The software was generally lackluster depending on a lot of proprietary hardware embedded features rather than software.. it had uncompressed and MPEG2 code/decode in hardware.. but they sold at BestBuy and Circuit City.. so I discounted them as serious boxes.
More or less I threw out the software since after Corel acquired Pinnacle the activation was non-functional anyway.. and started playing around with the DirectX drivers in GraphEdit instead.. the hardware keeps surprising me with the features accessible only from the hardware drivers.
Oh.. it doesn't have a DV codec.. but it does have a firewire i.Link port.
If Avery Lee hadn't spoke up for and supported the Plextor ConvertX
402U he might well have liked these boxes.
(ugh).. I attached the capture sample.. (yeah.. laugh all you want.. regarding the content..).. I was looking for a bad tape.
This is (not) S-VHS and not via S-Video, it is using Composite, no proc-amp or any other filtering.. its straight off a crummy 1996 vcr that wheezes like an organ grinder.
