Looks like my frustration isn't exactly over yet. I'm having trouble recording content with the AverMedia Center.
So far I've been able to get AMC to do the HDCP check and allow me to record in VirtualDub and VH Capture in SD and 1080i/p ONLY. Trying to set to 720p gives me a green screen with audio.
I would very much prefer to capture in AMC because it eliminates interlacing that I get on VD and VHC. But I can't get the HDCP trick to work to get it to capture via AMC.
Also, the videos that I record are fairly choppy (forced to record at 1080i). My computer specs are not too bad at all, seeing as others have captured perfect videos without skips with weaker hardware.

Perhaps it's my HDD's Speed? I'm fine with capturing at SD (rarely skips) for now, but I just want to know whether the skips are normal with my current hardware.
I'll probably have to start overclocking.
