Yeah I know. Why are you posting a U2 question in a UDF area? But yeah I do have the same question because I have some great games I want to show off to my friends.

He has the same question so rather than creating a completely pointless thread, and making a nonsense post like you have, he is using the search feature and using the forum as it was intended.

 

 

To answer the question, without a PVR there are other capturing devices, much cheaper but poor in quality alternatives to a PVR.

 

Dazzle DVD Recorder does the job at not so great quality.

Pinnacle PVT device records to USB pen drive

Easy Cap.. Similar to DVD Recorder.

 

On the more expensive side there are the

 

Happauge HD PVR - My personal choice

and

Black Magic Intensity Pro - Don't like this, requires you to open your pc. Effort is lame.

 

Regardless. you will need HDMI for Black magic? Could be wrong.

 

For Happauge you will need Component HD cables

 

For the cheaper alternatives you would need signal splitters and some other junk, kinda forgot what, been a long time since I used those.

 

The first ones I listed aren't actually PVR devices, They are capturing devices, you may ask what the difference is, apart from quality, I don't know. It's just how things are labelled. :smileyhappy:

1) Hauppauge doesn't require to open your pc? Where is the recorded video saved?

 

2) HDMI for capturing is a no-no, due to HDCP encryption. There are 2 ways to circumvent that, but it's not really worth the effort.

 

3) Yeap, Component is the way to go for HD capturing.

 

Personally, I use this one:

I mean open your PC in a sense of taking the screws out and fiddling with the insides :smileytongue:

 

You still have to switch on your PC to access your files. Actually the PC needs to be on to record also.

 

I haven't personally heard much about the one you have. Seems similar to the Happauge though.

I prefer internal cards, because they are cheaper (half the price compared to Hauppauge) and the capture quality is the same. :smileyhappy:

Yeah it's probably not so wise for me to do that, my PC already overheats and shuts down on it's own after a while. I was under the impression the quality was better on some of the internal cards though, even though I quite honestly can't tell any difference.
