Is anyone using a stable capture card with HDMI inputs? What about components or S-video? I'm looking to input a 1080P signal from my Cable box. Is this available yet? If so what capture card are you using?
Well there are some ways to achieve 'HDMI capture' but they involve converting the HDMI signal to another format like component first. We have customers using the HD-Fury ( see http://www.hdfury.com/
) for example which will accept HDMI input and output VGA or Component. If you input 1080p it will output that same resolution too. This works really very well for component for example where you can then route the component signals into say an HD-PVR which MythTV supports. The HD-Fury has a few simple settings on it and thats it. Picture quality is excellent and in our experience it just works.
All the best
