That will require a video capture card.

It stops the video because you are switching to a different port on the iMac. Same as switching from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 to VGA to Component on your regular TV. e.g. switching from satellite to the DVD player to your PS3, etc.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Then you need to find a video capture card that fits within the iMac limitations.

Here's two options.

Elgato Video Capture

Overview EyeTV HD

ElGato has a pretty active forum also. Would suggest you head there and get some opinions from those using their devices for exactly your intended purpose.
