The AverMedia LGP Lite (GL310) is a cheap HDMI (with pass-through) to USB 2.0 capture card. The card only supports compressed output (afaik) which makes it slightly less useful but still very valuable when debugging graphical issues. The plan is to hook a few of these up to my test machines so I can stream the output to my workstation and integrate with the rest of my test setup. So far I've discovered that the card needs to be loaded with two firmwares. One for audio and one for video. Hopefully this will turn into a standard UVC device once the initial bootstrap is done fingers crossed.
