As Elgato is simply acting as a pass-through, what makes you think it only works for consoles?

 

Still, if you have a good system, you can record Fraps in HD without a problem.

Thank you I just wanted to make sure if i was not missing out anything :)

 

regarding Elgato this line : 

 

  • Record your PlayStation or Xbox gameplay to a Mac or PC

and the youtube video shows it is for only consoles only. So just few minuted ago i found this video:

 

 

on how to trick it.. I will give that guy options what he wants to do .. Thank you Clay :)

This would be my choice for a hardware solution

Always loved Hauppauge products, they've always worked flawlessly for me.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

MSI Afterburner has this feature as well. Capturing HD Data can become hardware intensive.

MSI Afterburner.  It gives less of a performance hit in my experience and doesn't create a bunch of 3.9GB files.

The Hauppauge PVR2 is awesome, we have one in house right now. It does limit you to 1080 resolution but there is zero performance hit, meaning even if you are recording back to the computer you are playing on you do not need to lower settings. Also works with BluRay and standard DVD players so you can make a back up of your movies, use it on your game consoles, any device with HDMI output.
