Hello, this is my first post here on Mac Forums and I was hoping you all could help me out. My goal is to record 1080p HD gameplay video footage at either 60 or 120 Hz from my PlayStation 3 with a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard. Any links, comments, suggestions, etc. will be appreciated and helpful!
Here is my current hardware/setup:
- PlayStation 3 (Slim)
- Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
- Vizio 1080p 120Hz 55" HDTV
- MacBook Pro (17", Unibody, Snow Leopard)
Currently my PlayStation 3 is connected to my TV through an HDMI cable sending a 1080p (60Hz) video signal. My TV then sends surround sound to my 5:1 Sony surround sound system through the TV's audio out. My goal is to connect my PlayStation 3 to my TV and my MacBook Pro allowing me to play in HD (1080p, 60Hz) and record in HD (1080p, 60Hz). I've seen a few different products that have you plug you PS3 into them and then they allow you to have 2 different outputs (the computer and the TV) and I think there are also some products that allow you to connect your PS3 to your TV then output the video to your computer. But I'm not sure... I also know there are a few applications/hardwares that allow you to connect video to your computer (eyeTV). But I don't know what to get, how to set it up, and how much it will cost.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
