Hi All, What is the best way to capture video/audio using the Motorola DCT6416 III device?I some sports games, that were recorded on my DVR, that I would like to play back on my computer and capture/convert to AVI. I believe there is a HDMI port on this device, buy I'm not familiar with converting HDMI to firewire. Hello, sorry to revive an old post but I was wondering if anybody could elaborate on this a bit.I have browsed many outdated forums about this topic and have not had much luck.I installed Cap DVHS and attempted to use this to record video from my DVR.Note: With the availability of Cable Card tuners in the US, most users will likely want to choose that route instead of Firewire for direct capture.This does not apply to Canada where Cable Card units are not required to be supported by cable companies.
Sure, there's Direct TV HD and there's over-the-air HD and the Windows Media Center, but the absolute simplest thing we could get was HD through our local Comcast cable. We want HD and we want a DVR/PVR (Digital Video Recorder.) We just can't live without "Tivo"-like functionality.We don't want too much TV now, and we the idea of "appointment TV." I don't know when Will and Grace is on, and I don't care. That said, the Motorola single box solution offered by Comcast served all my purposes and we've been happy with it for the last few months.It's not as shiny as my 2 Replay TVs, or my Media Center PC, but it has dual tuners and it does HDTV. So, anyway, it started stuttering last week and that wife wasn't having that.I prime the port twice an hour if nothing is recording from the box, and get very reliable recordings from known good channels.Without priming it would get mostly failures when recording.
