I currently have my directv HD pvr hooked up to the component inputs of my tv. I have been looking at capture card options for setting up a hybrid PC, and there doesn't seem to be any with hdmi or component inputs, only s-video. So to maintain HD video to my HDTV, it appears I will need to leave the component cables hooked from my PVR to my tv, and use the additional s-video from the PVR to feed the capture card on the hybrid PC? If so, this means if I want to see the hybrid PC video, I would need to hook it to a separate input on my TV, and would only see SD video from my PVR from the hybrid PC video side of things.
Are there any "HD" capable capture cards compatible with linuxMCE, to enable me to hook my PVR to it on the hybrid PC and maintain HD quality visuals out of the video card of the hybrid PC (kind of functioning as a HD pass-through)? This would enable me to use the existing input on my AV receiver and not have to use an additional one (which I'm not sure I have). The only thing I see is the HD PVR at http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_hdpvr.html
, but this is not expicitly listed as supported on the linux MCE hardware page.
Any advice is much appreciated
