Thanks heaps for a quick reply.

I guess the best way to describe what I think we are both after here is something that can be incorporated to a HDMI based entertainment system - now personally I'd be happy with my recorded gaming to be in HD it doesn't have to be FULL HD 1080 but if recording the game means I have to give up actually playing the game without use of my HDMI leads then I'm not into the suggestion.

I have read about the Hauppage HD PVR and also the Blitz Box my only concern is what I've mentioned just above, as they both use componet cables and dont have the option for HDMI...

I wonder though if I did this if it would work - Hopefully you or someone else here is able to tell me...



1st step: Get a HDMI Splitter - Connect this into the back of the PS3, I would have now obviously have two HDMI plugs from the back of the PS3.

2nd step: From the 1st plug connect as per previous set up. (Mine goes from the PS3 to the amp then from the amp to the T.V.)

3rd step: From the 2nd plug connect a HDMI to Component Cable (if this would work skip step 4) or if that wouldn't work Plug a HDMI to HDMI lead into a HDMI to Component Converter. (Please let me know which would be needed to make this work)

.................................................. ................................................
4th step: From the HDMI to Component converter connect Component to component lead into the Converter and the Hauppage HD PVR / Blitz Box or whatever recording device you choose.
.................................................. ................................................

5th step: From HDMI to Component cable plug component leads into the Hauppage HD PVR / Blitz Box or whatever recording device you choose.

6th step: From HD PVR / Blitz Box or whatever recording device you choose connect to your PC / Mac.


Would this work?
I've also noticed that Blitz make a Wireless version - what are any disadvantages it could have? eg. Might be lesser quality, lag - ect. if any...

Thanks heaps for your reply - Im really excited to find a cheaper alternative to my previous post as that is actually a commerical grade piece of equiptment... LOL..

P.S. I hope that all made sense.
