Been searching online for hours but I can't find anything


I am working on a project and I am attempting to view an HDMI input through my computer. Like a capture card, but I do not want to record the video.

So here is a diagram of what I am trying to achieve.

Device output --> HDMI/DVI/VGA --> PC Input --> inside windows--> PC Monintor

So in the end I will have a window of my input that I can minimize and manipulate.

Any suggestion? I know it is someone where on the line of a capture card...
I have a gtx570 of that would do anything.

Or is there a way to use a VGA port on my computer to achieve this?


Edit: I just want to have the ability to have the output in a window for I can manipulate it.

Thanks for any help, so lost

look at dazzle capture cards. they are cheap...i used one to capture my xbox 360 gameplay

edit: no you can't use your vga port as its designed for video output to some external display, not video imput...dazzle uses usb for the imput

Is there anyway to get the delay to something non noticeable? Or non existent?
