    Hi,
    today I have found the following: http://www.3dsvideocapture.com/product/48
    A capture card for the Wii U Game Pad by the team behind the 3DS capture card!
    It looks nice to me, but before I gonna send in my Game Pad I'd like to know if anyone has ever used it on their own or even have such a device on their Pad.
    How much time does shipping take?
    Can the video quality be considered as losless and does it transfer the video signal with 60fps (it's just a mini USB 2.0 cable..)?
    :unsure:

    Thanks for reading

    250 bucks, i would just buy a capture card for the main screen on my wii u, there like 100 bucks, and guaranteed better quality.

    Why would you want to? I get the game shows extra stuff through the game pad, but if your streaming or making youtube videos everyone wants the see the main scree, not the game pad, also it would still have better quality.

    It's nice to be able to show both screens. $250 is not a lot of money for a serious LP'r. They will earn that in one or two days.

    I don't know anything about this particular device but I know that their New 3DS XL capture cards suck. They have a very short life span and the shipping is a nightmare, it always takes about 1 or 2 months for an order to arrive if you don't happen to live in Japan as there are no resellers.

    Want to know what's funny about it, the original DS capture card was invented by this guy who also (i believe) made the first 3DS card, onto which this company stole the idea used some cheap ass Chinese knock off parts and sell it at 100 percent mark up, see i inquired about getting just the kit to install myself at that would be the cheapest option, they then told me it would not be possible to install myself with out some super lab they have, whats funny is they guy who made the shit in the first place installs them by hand haha, so they sell cheap bullshit which is why it never works like it should, and is always a pain to get.

    One of these days I should try taking my FPGA to a 3DS and try to make my own capture card for kicks and giggles. It's kinda ridiculous how much these things cost honestly.
