Hardware inputs for PCI Slots on PC computer systems.


RGB input cards or DVI Input cards, HDMI input cards.


I want to be able to start recording digital broadcasts.

Sorry, doesn't exist, bandwidth is too high for any PC to keep up with it. Only option for PC recording is get a PCI HD tuner card or use firewire.

Not true anymore.


PCIX can input uncompressed HD. Several broadcast grade devices been doing it for well over a year.

A striped RAID can easily keep up with the stream. Problem is storage capacity of uncompressed HDTV. But again many PC based broadcast devices can store a few hours uncompressed. All the AVID platforms are PCs or MACs. And Avid is only one of many vendors offering systems these days.
