The Black Gold Signature Video Capture functionality is delivered as a bundled component of a TV tuner card which allows the host computer system to receive live broadcast streams. The installation of the device driver and its supported hardware component installs into the host computer system other elements like BDA TS Capture, CrossBar, InfraRed Decoder, and TV and Radio tuner among others. These associated components are all supported by the device driver and are activated accordingly. This type of hardware component is not covered by generic device drivers found in newer operating system platforms. This is because the Black Gold Signature Video Capture is based on a proprietary technology that is supported by a hardware based solution. Although there may be instances that these types of hardware components may share similar chipsets their manner of deployment still differ. Therefore it is not entirely acceptable to interchange device drivers.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The installation of the correct device driver allows the computer user to maximize the potentials of a hardware encoder. This supported component of the Black Gold Signature Video Capture allows for the recording of streaming audio and video using VC1, DIVX, or the MPEG codec family. The hardware component itself allows for the connection of a component video source via the input port at the back panel. The device driver is designed in such a way that it will allow for the management of the program stream based on the combination of a hardware tuner and a demodulator program. The device driver and its supported hardware component allows not only for the detection but also receiving and processing of television signals. The hardware encoder supported by the device driver is responsible for offloading the task of recording television streams from the main processing chip of the host computer system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Black Gold Signature Video Capture errors before installing any driver updates.
