Hello people,

I work with live stream, I own an Alienware and I recently purchased an AGA.

Unlike most people, I don't need to put a better video card, I need to connect an pcie 8x hdmi capture card.

I haven't bought the card yet, but I tested it with a 1x network card and didn't recognize it.

I imagined that the AGA would be an egpu board like the others we see out there. But I don't know why it didn't work.

Does anyone have any idea how to do this with AGA?

Thank you!

@mario_pompeu, Did you boot the computer up with the AGA connected? There's a graphics switching software utility to detect a connected AGA (light on the connector) so that following a restart, the system can make use of the eGPU and disable the dGPU. With a non graphics card installed, you may not need/want this software utility.

Hi @itsage! Tks for your reply!

Yes, I did that, plugged everything off, and then I turned on the notebook.

But when I disconnect, I connect the 1x network card, nothing happens. does not recognize in windows.

I saw in another forum that DELL blocks the use of any type of card that is not a video card.

Have you used any other type of pci card in AGA?

@mario_pompeu, That's too bad. Unfortunately I have not tested anything else but a GPU inside the AGA.
