I emailed the serial number to Datapath. They responded by the following day for me (same day for them -located in UK). Very helpful, but I felt guilty bothering them. I will be exchanging my card for an E1S that later I found.David K how exactly was it that they were able to identify your card as not an S model?
No, it only needs a single-link cable. Are you converting from another signal format? What about the Datapath software, does it show in color or black and white there?I just got an E1 off ebay and it's only capturing in black and white. It takes screenshots in color so not sure what's going on.
I'm using a single link DVI cable. Could that be the source of my issue?
It shows in color there but OBS is in black and white. I don''t remember changing the signal format. How do I check for that? I'm using OBS studio btw.No, it only needs a single-link cable. Are you converting from another signal format? What about the Datapath software, does it show in color or black and white there?
I bought out this auction ^ before reading this forum :P. Not sure how much difference the E1 from the E1s is going to affect my capture. My issue has been finding drivers for Mac OS. I have contacted Datapath about this and they said they would get back to me soon.This seller is still listing about one RGB-E1 per day on Ebay, like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/391405969104 . The last three have gone for right around $70. As long as you've got a spare PCIe 4x or better, this can't be touched. There's no way to get another 1080p60 capable capture card anywhere close to this price.
