Intensity Pro: problem HDMI
on Jan 27, 2010 at 12:23:19 am

Hello,

I have a problem with the Intensity Pro card.
My card does not capture the signal on the HDMI (in). The equipment has been tested on a DVD Player (with HDMI Output), Play Station 3, hardware converter - composite to HDMI.

The computer does not see a signal even though the settings are configured to capture the channel to HDMI (panel Blackmagic). I'm using the latest drivers (v.5.4). I have computer Gateway GM5478.

Component and HDMI(out) is ok.

Does someone met with a similar problem? Is it the fault of the card, or setting software?
I should be grateful for your help.

Hmmmm interesting. Sounds just like the problem I was having trying to capture via the S-video input. Still no reply from BlackMagic support.

The DVD player and PlayStation3 probably have HDCP on them, which is a copy protection protocol which will make you unable to view anything not compatible with the protocol. Your component adapter is probably not compatible either.

Recommendation, use a camera with a HDMI out, test that way. A video camera does not have HDCP and should play back for you fine. I can't see that any of these devices should have worked.

Yes HDCP is a pain in the arss but understood why its used. I've actually had loads of success capturing from xBox, Playstation 3 and DVD players using the Component connections. Our PS3 is older with component and not HDMI, so that helps. But I don't think any capture cards allow you to capture HDCP protected content.

You are correct, sir, and that is the point of HDCP, to protect content. At the current time, nothing on the market bypasses this protection.
