My frame grabber experience is a little moss-grown (Targa-16,

world. ( I know nothing much about qnx but have become interested
since the freebie was promised. )
Matrox Meteor & clones? Meteor II ? Color boards that can do at
least 5-5-5 ?
i’d also speak against Matrox boards. Around two years ago we tried to
use Meteors with QNX 4 and Nick Costescus driver. The driver was fine,
but the hardware is a piece of crap IMHO. They did not run in any
actual PCI Mainboard (not the normal Meteor nor the “PPB” version).
That cost us a lot of time … and money >:-[
Finally i wrote a driver for (low-cost) Bt848 boards. Used it with a
Hauppauge (COTS, at least here in germany) card without problems.
BTW: if there’s anybody still interested in two Matrox Meteor cards,
only slightly used, in the original box with cables, FOR SALE!
