    Default In-line video recorder

    Hi chaps. Thinking about getting something that I can record films etc. to that will sit in line between a hdmi feed and the TV. I seen some similar things in town the other day but seems to be aimed at gamers to capture game play. I would presume these would be ok and not too expensive either but then I think they also may be pretty low with the quality and also glitchy? Got some external usb (usb 2) drives I could attach to the device for the actual recording.

    Anyone got anything for videos as opposed to games and if so, any recommendations/ feedback on them. Thanks.

    Depends what your budget is.
    Check out the Happauge 1480 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] this has a HDMI passthru so you can still watch whats on the TV. Encodes 1080p at 30fps. Looking for cheaper? Maybe a cheapo PVR but these can be used from Tesco etc. but it depends what you want. The Happauge is a good piece of kit and you can buy direct from them for 150 euros!

    You will still need a PC but it will not need to be particularly powerful.

    What's the reason for it? Might be able to give better suggestions if we know what it will be used for

    without saying too much, capturing films via hdmi ???, all can be done from a PC with and without the disc, with the end result, lossless or what ever format you want,

    If its is bought BR movies you hoping to capture, your out of luck as there is a protection within the HDMI data. If it is VHS bought then they are also macro protected, however there is a work around available
    As above.. it all depends on what your wanting to capture tbh !
