Anybody have a suggestion on a good HDMI capture card for offloading Dish DVR items from the H3? I was considering the Hauppauge Colossus 2 but it says it can’t handle HDCP. I’m assuming Dish uses HDCP?
My setup is as follows : StarTech .com USB 3.0 HD Video Capture Device-1080P , with a ViewHD 1x2 splitter (vhd-1x2MN3D), A Vip722 receiver. I can record anything live or off the hard drive.Both products available off of Am*zon. Also I am using HDMI out on receiver not component.
I have been using a Hauppauge PVR1212 to capture component video and optical audio output from My Hopper, never seen a HDCP problem, everything I have tried has been seen and captured by my PC as a transport stream even movies recorded during free previews.
Anyone know if Hopper3 can push video out of the component and HDMI at the same time?
Think hopper will but not sure about the H3. This goes for audio also will it work with optic cable while HDMI is also pushing audio.
I also use the View HD VHD-1X2MN3D Splitter. The HDMI splitter output connects to a YK940 4K HDMI 1080P HD Video Capture Box. The HDMI output from that connects to my 4K TV. The USB output connects to a computer, which can be used to record/playback the HDMI signal using the software that was provided with the Capture Box. Since buying the Hopper 3, I have not used the Capture Box to record anything. If I want to copy any content, I transfer the H3 DVR content to an external drive plugged into the USB 3.0 jack on the back, then connect that external drive to a Linux PC and copy the content off, reconnect the external drive hack to the H3 and transfer the content back. That gives me archival copies of content that can be returned back to any replacement H3 or other Dish DVR if anything goes wrong with my original equipment.The View HD is the splitter I have. Component looked great in 720p/1080i. I couldnt tell any different between component and hdmi recordings.
