    Jy is right about that one... As for documentation, which would you rather I do... Spend time writing documents, or spend time testing revisions and coding new things? You're welcome to write a manual for mediaengine 2.1.4. We will be happy to post it on the mediaengine.org website.
    Get MediaEngine !!!

    Jy is right and wrong you could get a SDK from Hauppauge but you do need a card to test things out and I can't do the doc's but a friend of might know how to do it in acrobat I will ask him and let you know

    I got a idea guys now I don't like to pay for software anymore than the next guy but I realy want to see Media Engine expand and grow what about charging 10-20 bucks for it or setting up a donations thing on the website to pay for the development costs of adding support for more hardware what do you guys think about it ?

    carcomp has always turned down the ideas of even donations.

    As for an sdk.. ya you can do it blindly but i know carcomp/phat_b don't work that way. DO it how I did gps for them.. I mad a usercontrol that was working and handed them the code
