HD Recorder?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking for something with multiple HDMI inputs (For xbox and ps3) that will record to my PC's hard drive while allowing me to play via HDMI out to my TV.

Any ideas? Budget isn't as concern if its under $300 or so.

My brother uses a Black Magic to record him playing CoD and other games on the Xbox. It records natively in 720p and the quality is awesome (you can even tweak the quality settings to your liking). According to him (he's had a few recording devices), it's the best he's used by a mile.

As far as I know, it only has one HDMI input however I don't see this as a problem; you simply change the cable over if you want to record the other console. It actually has two HDMI ports, but one of them is an output (as far as I know, at least).

Here's a link to the product's website: Black Magic Intensity - you can pick either the PCIe or USB 3 version up for the same price of $199. Personally I'd go for the USB device as it looks cleaner and keeps components out of my PC but it's up to you.

+Rep, according to the site it also records in 1080p.

Definitely going to be looking more into this one, seems great and the multi HDMI input isn't THAT big of a deal... I have a switch laying around somewhere.
