Video grabber compatible with Indivision

Hi guys!

I'm looking for a video capture device (preferably external, record to PC-via-USB or to USB-stick) which works with the DVI output of my A1200's Indivision MK2 (latest (neverthelesss antique) core) and which also swallows rather "exotic" resolutions (not just 1920x1080 or 1280x720).
I already tried the following and they just don't work:

- Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket
- Elgato Game Capture HD60

No idea what's so special / wrong about the Indivision but I cannot even record std. resolutions (sometimes at least the Hauppauge eventually manages to loop through the signal to the monitor, but still fails to record).
All those devices have HDMI input, which is why I use a DVI-to-HDMI cable to connect the Amiga. Should be 100% unproblematic, of course (and the TV has no problems).
So far the only thing that worked was a Composite-to-HDMI converter, stuffed into the Hauppauge. But the result is of course not really satisfying

Can somebody recommend a working device? Or did anybody come up with special parameter tweaks for the Indivision?

Thanks & cheers,
Daniel

Thanks! Unfortunately in my case the info there doesn't help: both of my video grabbers mentioned above work well with my AOS4 machines and actually with anything that's not an Indivision
Would be really great if you could check out your devices with your Indivision

If the Indivision outputs some exotic frequencies, maybe you first need a good signal-converter fromVGA/DVI to HDMI ?

Something like this: https://www.aten.com/global/en/product ... iovideo/converters/vc182/

Sorry for the late reply.

@noXLar
Although you apparently tend to friendly overstate my deeds and although you certainly don't owe me anything, I'd still be very happy if you could give it a try to rule in/out more devices

@benny
It should work without sth. like that. The Indivision should spit out a digital signal that shouldn't require further conversion. And to its defense: my TVs swallow all of its outputs if connected via a simple DVI->HDMI cable. Only all my video-grabbers fail. As if there was some subtle "incompatibility" with the signal which the TVs just tolerate.
That converter-scaler you linked to looks like a nice device nevertheless
