Capture card (HD) for Xbox 360
on Nov 24, 2009 at 8:29:23 pm

I don't exactly know where to put this, but since I work with Final Cut I chose to put it here.

I'd like to capture some footage of me playing Xbox360 but the only things I've found was capturing stuff in Standard. I do like to play the games in full HD so I don't want to hit the switch on the back of the XBOX to play in standard. I currently work on a MacBookPro. How do I capture myself playing in full HD?

Thanks

You'd need the AJA IOHD or the Matrox MXO2 to capture via HDMI.

Or a converter like the AJA HA5 that converts HDMI to HD-SDI, and then use that with your capture card.

Checkout the other AJA mini-converters. There's probably one to go from component to HS-SDI.

Nope.

Since Xbox materials have copyrights the HDCP requirements on the HDMI will prohibit capture digitally.

I was afraid there'd be a gotcha like that!

I've done this before, and I had to capture via component because the HDMI output has HDCP. I know the AJA IO doesn't support HDCP, not sure about other options like the Matrox stuff. When I did it I went component into a Folsom ImagePro HD scan converter and spit out HD-SDI to capture into my system through a Kona 3. Depending on your setup you may be able to go in component directly or use a cheaper converter, but I had the ImagePro handy and knew it would work. The other thing is that the audio output is unbalanced so I had to convert that to feed it to the Kona as well.

You said you're on a Macbook Pro, what sort of capture device are you using?

Capturing via HDMI can be problematic because of the HDCP encryption. You can buy boxes that say they'll spoof the HDCP but those are spotty as well. We do a ton of gameplay capture and it's all done via component.

Got that backwards- ALL Aja products DO support HDCP digital rights management over HDMI.

Hmm, well I never actually tried it, but the IO HD because the manual says, "HDCP is not supported on either input or output." Is that incorrect?

The Ki Pro manual says the same thing.

My experience w/Digital Foundry's gear has been less than impressive. We've used laptop and small form factor PCs from them and are still looking for something to meet our needs. We use DF for a lot of mobile/on location capture and maybe the units would provide a better experience if they weren't used in this type of on-the-go fashion.
