watching/recording HD cable

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i'm willing to hook up my HTPC to my cable box to get it, but i really want to run the hd signals through my HTPC and be able to watch them in windows media center. i thought that an ati avivo hd video card would let me do this but the more i read about it the more it sounds like it's just for video playback and not capture. (i don't get the vivo part of the avivo though) anyone know of any solutions that will let me do this?

also dooes anyone know any way i can use windows media center to watch blu-ray movies?

It is not possible to record HD cable like HBO or Showtime because of HDCP....

i looked into the first card you linked, and as far as i could tell, those hdmi ports were output not input.

i'll have to look into the second one you linked, thanks!

you need a player like PowerDVD 7 Ultra to watch Blu Rays...also check eBay for PowerDVD 7 Ulta keys for $6 instead of $99 from cyberlink.

Hauppauge is coming out soon with a product that will capture via component. It's called the HD PVR.

It's not quite out, but they're taking orders. It's out on may1, and they'll start shipping then.

I'm considering getting it also.

Buy AnyDVD HD. It can decrypt BD-ROM and HDDVD on the fly (which means it's decrypted while you watch the "encrypted" file, which will allow you to use media center)

As for the Hauppauge's HD PVR... I really don't recommend buying it. Find something that does HDCP.
It'll really suck if you have to pass it through an analog transmission, and then re-encode it.

This is digital TV, if not for encryption, you would've been able to just write the stream to your HDD.

Try looking for something that accepts the encryption card or something. In Japan, they have the Friio that does just that. You put in your B-CAS card (the Japanese encryption) and it decrypts on the fly, or you can capture encrypted and decrypt it later.
