What is Dish sending in the video stream that keeps an Avermedia card from seeing the HDMI and the component output? The composite works fine. This is on OTA stuff and even the menu screens.
I can understand if they automatically clip DRM on everything on the HDMI but component is just supposed to be an analog signal

I got on the Avermedia web sit and still have no idea idea of what it is/does...just who it's marketed to...teachers.

I use a Hauppauge DVR 1212, component input from my H2 put works even on HBO and other movie channels - in HD, too.

Unfortunately on the last HBO free preview, there was only one move worth saving.

Jim, from what I am seeing on some other BBs, do not update your driver. It appears they are adding some serious DRM to these things and it is catching things that should not even be protected. The buzz is, if I could find the old driver, this card would work Avermedia HD DVR (C027)
Their tech support just says they don't know anything about anything.
