new toy has arrived!

By SeanmcR6 - Posted on 13 July 2011

Well, it's probably not the soundest $150 I've ever spent, but I now have an HDMI HD PVR. So I can record our games and edit out my blunders and magnify Graybush's round 1 downs xD

Once I finally got it up and running, I was having terrible connection issues with XBL. So..that's my first vid.

First Black Ops test - FAIL from Sean McLennan on Vimeo.

I use vimeo to host my vids because I find they have better quality output than youtube. However, if it's easier for the forum to accept youtube embeds (vimeo can embed to) than I'll upload some of them to youtube as well.

After playing some zombies with Blackwalt and Graybush, Coxxorz can online and we played some multiplayer. Completely crushing our opponents on the first game. I'm not going to say EPIC, but it was close. I finished at 15-2...pnw call ended with 13-1!!

So here's the second vid :)

Since I purchased this little toy to help me prove what utter bullsh*t Treyarch's crappy network coding is...and I nabbed some samples this evening...I'll be editing together a little highlight reel of all of that BS you hear me screaming about and you can finally see what I'm talking about ;)

No, I don't let things go very easily xD

How can you even play that game with all the disconnects ?

I don't....I was having some network issue as well. 2 hours on the phone with the cable company and several attempts to restart the modem. Finally, 4 hours later, my internet connection was fixed.

Or will you be swearing again tonight?

I do get good and bad games (lag-wise), but not to the extreme like you do.

Post pics of your video device!

I will.....soon.

I bought this primarily to record xbl games...but I'm planning to use it for other video projects as well. I'm going to write a small review on the device tonight. I'll post it, with pics, for you.
