streaming recording hardware?

by cnusr / January 22, 2013 2:55 PM PST

Hello: what hardware is available that would allow me to set a recording time to record from a stream? (We have an ATT box that does that, but there's a stream not available there). I don't mind buying a box to store the stream like the WD live hub, but it would be nice to have the storage device also record the stream (without my being there). Thank you.

Keep in mind that all that is copy protected.

Your everyday recorders should fail for content delivered over ATT Uverse and such. So given that you really need to ask if the content is copy protected in ways to make recording difficult.

With that out of the way you can google what is BLACK MAGIC HDMI capture cards. Put that into a PC and you might have it.

Agree with your 1st paragraph, but 5C prevents Black Magic..

...from being able to capture the encrypted content. There's HDCP, which the Black magic seems to circumvent, and there's 5C.

All HDMI recorders so far.

"*However,* if your HDMI output device (Xbox, Android phone) uses copy protection (HDCP, High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) then it will *not* record HDMI input. This is not a shortcoming of the Shuttle, it's a licensing arrangement that Blackmagic Design must agree with if they are to support HDMI at all."

Intel (yes Intel) is ready to send out a swarm of lawyers to whoop a__ anyone that dares break HDCP.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
