I have a cable box with a component video output for HD programming. I'm looking for way to input and capture the video at HD quality on my PC. any suggestions on a video capture device that has a component input? I can't find one for the life of me.


thanks in advance.

this gets asked about once a month like clockwork.... a simple search on the forum surely would bring up all the "not gonna happen for a reasonable price" answers....

Let's change that to "There's nothing available that's practical for DVR-ing".


However with Fujitsu showing their "cheap" H.264 Hardware encoder chip at CES, there's hope somebody will pick it up use in a PVR type card.

Check out the HDHomeRun. It plugs into your network and can receive non-encrypted QAM256 and OTA HD channels. I did a mini review of it at DVRplayground (can't post the direct URL since I don't have five posts).


Of course, you won't be able to record all of the HD programming available to you, only the HD locals.
