      Initial tests show this is feasible, so next week we are starting to work on supporting the Lenkeng LKV373A!

      It seems that this is a great solution for all live input options. We will be adding the HDMI-in option supporting this device probably within February as beta. We also plan to use this device for support video-walls.

      In the future, we will be adding support USB DVB-T Tuners. We were also planning for supporting USB Composite Capture Cards, but this seems a bit outdated now, since all video sources can be connected to the HDMI-to-ethernet device mentioned above.
