Is there still no hardware/software that can take an encrypted HDMI signal and send an unencrypted signal to Windows Media center (or other Front end) for recording ?


Don't care if its grey area or "illegal" in some Countries.

Yes, the Hauppage HD PVR has been around for a while now, and does just this. I think even Avermedia has a similar device.

Doh! You are right. Is there a reason why you can't use component?


The Avermedia HDMI capture card and the Black Magic capture card can't break encryption... so your signal has to be unencrypted.

Not that I know.


Also, there is a difference in BD encryptions for different discs, which is different from the old DVD encryptions that can still be sent over HDMI.


There is also separate encryption on QAM channels from CableCo/DirectTV/etc.


The HDMI DRM specification bypass that you speak of isn't yet repeatable. In other words, the appropriate playback sources won't repeat HDCP free content. The failsafe of HDMI is the error messages you see, so your only copy enabling scheme would see is one that can enable a "false" handshake and then repeat it.
