Blackmagic Intensity Pro - DirecTV HD DVR capture
I have tried my Blackmagic Intensity Pro HDMI capture from my DirecTV HD DVR box to my Mac Pro dual 2.66 Intel os 10.5.6. All works fine using the Blackmagic latest driver and the DVCPRO at 720p and 1080i EXCEPT I get big pixel blocks at times and some artifacts. Am I doomed with the re-compression of this mp4 output from the DTV box? Is there anybody who has luck doing this?
I would invest in the necessary raid equipment to import over HDMI uncompressed, but can I edit uncompressed HD in FCP's latest? Or am I asking for more problems? I wish to finish with creation of blu ray.
Is there anyone who has any suggestions for me? Anyway to just get the files off the DirecTV box? Can any compression work? How about uncompressed?
