Here is what I've been working on. It was inspired by the work at homebuiltrovs.com. Some of you may know it. The owner Steve was kind enough to share a demo version of his control software. I expanded on it to look very similar to his. The WinDVR program is just on overlay, using the "Always on top" feature. In a future version I am working on incorporating a live video window into the program. Maybe from a USB easycap device. I'm trying to get some answers on a Visual Basic forum on how to do this. The control interface will be a Phidgets 0/16/16 board. Visit www.homebuiltrovs.com
for more info on his great build.
