    This, a hundred times this. Who even uses component any more? HDMI is hugely better quality, on the Xbox 360 anyway.

    I presume this is another DRM fail.

    PS, on my home internet it would take around 5 hours to download that 2GB video, and you can more than double that for uploading

    Or, incidentally, an hour fifteen via my phone to download, or <4h to upload - lol.

    I recommend the Intensity Pro over the HD PVR. You will get fed up within a week thanks to the amount of cables needed for pass-through and the ridiculous belt component cable it provides (which continuously pulls the device backwards because it is so heavy).

    Not only is the Intensity Pro cheaper but internal too (PCIe x1 lane) and records uncompressed if you really want the best quality (and have enough hard drive space).

    Hopefully HEXUS will do a review for it too and then compare them both.

    Edit: Intensity Pro is HDMI too.

    Yup DRM in the form of HDCP.

    Hollywood don't want you making a 1:1 digital copy of the content....even though all their "on disk" protection was broken VERY early on and it's much easier and faster to make your 1:1 copy at the file level....

    Ho hum.

    Re: Reviews - Hauppauge HD PVR Gaming Edition

    You're not allowed to make digital to digital conversions, this proves a complete nightmare for me at work as a lot of our customers are broadcasters who just want a cheap solution of making off-air recordings and playing them back into their digital broadcast system (HDSDI) for monitoring purposes. Receivers have also disabled the analogue HD outputs now so you cant even do that conversion.
    What you can do, by means of an HDFury, is convert HDMI to analogue HD. This conversion is entirely legal (according to their website anyway) but for us it means i have to go HDMI -> Analogue HD -> HDSDI which is just nasty!

    Been wondering if a PC could be used as a Freeview/Freesat PVR just using windows media centre then the DVI output could be converter into digital or would HDCP be thrown in there aswell?

    The PS3 outputs games using HDCP (unlike the XB360 which just uses it for video). So I assume this is why it chooses component over HDMI. Otherwise it wouldn't record all the games consoles.

    Oh, I do hate DRM, I can't see how it does anyone any good (and that includes the studios)
