Anybody know of an external, HDMI input video card/video capture card?


Victim of high standards and low personal skills.
I only use a laptop (a "desktop replacement" model), but I'm interested in a video card/video capture card that had HDMI input, since I have a DishNetwork HD DVR setup, and the best input off of there would be using the HDMI cables.

Any ideas, or an I chasing a unicorn again?

HDCP encryption for 1080p prohibits the major usage for such a device. So until the DMCA gets canned, don't expect it.

Edit: Found some cards that are internal only and can do 1080i. Kind of hard to find a lot since there seems to be so few companies that want to deal with a very scant market demand.
