Accessing/Converting DVR Footage
on Apr 22, 2012 at 2:59:39 am

I need to get access to some interviews I recorded on my (Time Warner Cable) DVR so I can convert and edit them into a FCP project. I was told I could do this thru an AJA ioxt. Is that so? If not, any idea how I can grab the footage I want on the DVR?

The DVR has HDMI and RCA out, as well as a Firewire port.

The shows were recorded in 16x9 HD.

If this were 4x3 material, I could take the RCA's into my DV deck and pass thru, but I'd like to keep the widescreen aspect ratio and highest quality resolution possible, and do not have a pass thru device for that.

So I'd like to pull it off the HDMI. Can I do that with the AJA just by hooking it up to the DVR and my computer and capturing in FCP once I hit play on the DVR?

Or -- if I connected a Firewire drive, how would I control the DVR so I could copy just the ten minutes of footage I want, not the 80 hours that's stored on the DVR.

iMac 27" with 3.4GHZ Quad-Core Intel Core i7 Processor

Thanks for any tips.
