How to capture HDCP-encrypted HDMI sources (Vudu, Netflix, Directv, Virgin Media, etc.) — Page 4

The Avermedia HD DVR captures from any HDMI source if you use a hacked firmware

You can get the hacked firmware here

I use amarectv to capture in 1080i with AMV2 codec or if you preffer you can use UTvideo codec.

No. They were original drivers, as well as a hacked application.

There's no reason to mess around with that anymore when the Timeleak cards are cheaper and allow HDCP recording without jumping through hoops.

How far can I get with an HDCP stripper and a Blackmagic Intensity Pro (BMIP)?

Can the BMIP capture 5.1 audio streams?

1080i and 2.0 only.

OK, that's good enough for me!

Will it down-convert X.1 to 2.0?

Nah, silence or two of the LPCM channels probably. That's how it is with the AVerTV card.

Hello everyone! Really glad to have found this thread which I now read twice.

I am looking for an external HDMI capture card, so this was an interesting read.

I was looking at the Skydigital SKY-CXHDMIU3 mentioned in the first post, which has a nice enough price and is able to do "lossless captures" with DD5.1.

Although, after thinking about it for a while, I'm not sure that in the end I want to have to deal with huge UT or Huffyuv files and reencode everything.

I then started looking at options like the "HD PVR 2 GE Plus" that seem to support AC3 audio as well. The limitation of 14Mbps seems "good enough" for me. Although it seems that it doesn't capture 1080p@23.976 which is what I was aiming at.

Are there any similar cards to (Hauppauge, eyeTV, AVerMedia) that do 1080p23.976 and AC3?

Thanks

It does, but tagged at 1080p24. I only made a short clip before returning it so I'm not sure if that causes a sync problem eventually. If it does you should still be able to remux to the correct frame rate.

Hey, drngr great post very detailed. I was just wondering if it's possible to get further confirmation before I buy this stuff.

If I get a ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter to remove protection and use it with a Blackmagic Design DeckLink Mini Recorder that will allow me to capture 6 channel uncompressed audio and uncompressed video right?

I'd like to try capturing game play footage and some movies off BluRay and Netflix from my Xbox360 :)

Yes. Capturing Blu-ray movies is really silly though.

True but I'd just like to know if it's possible with this card, it's mostly the XBox game play I care about. Will the blackmagic have enough throughput to handle say 1080p/1080i video and six channel audio? I've heard some cards can't handle that much throughput.

You hadn't mentioned 1080p. The 360 only outputs at 60 fps in progressive mode, and the card can only handle up to 1080p30.

Hum, interesting... Thank you for your reply! I guess if it's only "tagged" as 24fps, then it would indeed create a sync problem but should be easy to tag it back to 23.976. However, if it's somehow "blending frames" to get to those 24fps, that wouldn't be nice.

 Ah but if you're only capturing movies say off Netflix from an XBox wouldn't a 30fps card be good enough? Because if you captured at the 60 passive it puts out you'd need to ditch every even or odd frame when it comes time to convert the capture back to its original frame rate. 30 or 24 or 25 fps.

Your only options with the 360 are 1080p60 or 1080i30. There are some devices like the WD TV that will output Netflix at 24/25 fps if you force it to, but most like the 360 and PS3 are locked to one frame rate for games & apps. To capture 24 fps you can capture at 1080i30 and IVTC.

Ah thanks for that info, given all that though.. Is there another card you can recommend that would allow for capture of up to 1080p60fps lossless and multi-channel audio lossless capture?

Author
Time

Nope; 1080p60 alone is rare enough in a reasonable price range without trying for multichannel.

Author

Thanks for the info. Looks like it just came out last month.

Currently listed on eBay for $240 shipped. Not too bad, and that should be easier to get a hold of than some of the other cards out there.

What do you think of the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt)?

It can supposedly capture 8-channel HD audio via HDMI in addition to, of course, HD video.

I'd be comparing it to the DeckLink Mini Recorder PCIe since they have the same frame rate limitation.

The Intensity Shuttle for Thunderbolt costs $90 more but you do get the analog capture capability.

... which is the best I've ever seen; if you have a rock-solid signal, that is. :-)

Is there any USB 3.0 device on the market today that can do HDMI capture WITH DD & DTS?

Basically same as Skydigital SuperCast X6 HDMI, but in USB 3 format

Thanks

sebus

edit:

There seems to exists SKYHD Capture USB 3 Skydigital SKY-CXHDMIU3 as per this post

Did anybody managed to get it working correctly?

There are some on *bay is this sold by roxy*books

Intensity does NOT capture AC3 as per this post
