AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus Tested Again

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on January 22, 2019 by getbent57

Talking about AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus yet again.  A few days back made a post how I tested it with my Raspberry Pi 3 running RetroPie.  Was happy with the results.  Now I have tried it with my PS4.  The first thing you have to do it is turn off HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) in the video settings.  After that you are good to go.  Recorded some Red Dead Online gameplay.  Was even more impressed when I see the results.  Forgot that it records at 60FPS.  Am so used to working and making videos at 30PFS.  Not sure if my video editing program can edit at 60.  Will have to look.  My camera can film at 60FPS but the resolution goes down to 720 which is not full HD.  Will have to try that as well.

Yes, another post talking about the AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus.  Now that I have an micro SD card got around to trying it out.  The first thing you need to so is update the firmware.  This is pretty easy to so.  There is a file you have to download off their site.   Next you put the micro SD card in the device and which it to card read mode.  Plug it into your computer.  This creates a file structure.  After that you unzip the file you downloaded.  There are two things in that, an update folder and a exe file.  You copy that update folder to the SD card.  Then you switch the device to PC Free mode and this starts the update.  When the LED is done flashing, you unplug it.  Switch it back to PC mode and plug it back in.  Next you run that exe file.  This makes sure it is updated.  Very simple to do.

So far only tested one game running off my Raspberry Pi 3.  Then did the same test with the other video capture device I have.  Will be showing the results in an up coming video for the YouTube channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.

Lexar_MicroSDXC_64GBHave made a few posts talking about the AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus game capture device.  In order to save the footage you need a Micro SD card.  When looking at a local store.  They had a bunch to choose from.  Some brands I never heard of.  Decided on the 64GB Lexar High Performance 300x microSDXC UHS-1.  Own about four Lexar USB thumb drives so thinking they used make good cards as well.  Have not tested it yet.  Waiting for my day off.  To set up the Game Portable.  Which I need to do a firmware update first.  Will be back with another post.

Ordered a AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus from the Best Buy website on December 27, 2018.  It shipped that day.  As I am typing this December 31, 2018.  It was in the mail box.  Think this has to be the fastest I have ever gotten shipping and delivered from the internet.  Haven’t gotten around to trying it out yet.  My plan is to make an unboxing video and comparison to the other video capture device I have.

During the Black Friday sales tried to get a AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus.  They were on sale at Best Buy and Amazon.ca.  But didn’t have any luck getting one.  While looking though the Best Buy Boxing Day online flyer seen that it was on sale again for the same price.  Knew there was know way I was going out to the mall during the first day of these “Boxing Week” sales.  Seen that there were sell it online as well.  So ordered in online from them.  Did that about midnight (December 27, 2018).  Check my email about 2 pm that day and seen that it had shipped.  Not sure when it will be at the door.  They give a ruff date of January 7, 2019.   When it does get here will take some pictures.  May be make a video about it.

AVerMedia_Live_Gamer_Portable_2_PlusWas flipping though the black Friday flyers and one things caught my eye.  The AVerMedai Live Game Portable 2 Plus.  This little box lets you steam you video game, gameplay in 4k and 60fps.  Or you can capture you video to a micro SD card.  Seen some people talk about these last year some time.  Looked them up back then.  They costed hundreds of dollars.  So didn’t bother looking at it any more.  Until I seen it in the Best Buy flyer going for a $130.00.  They are so going for the game price on Amazon.ca.  Might just get one.

[Update] Looked back on the Best Buy flyer they are sold out.
