> Here is a device that takes HDMI in and provides HD video streams:

> Fits in a PCI Express slot.
> Cost: $249
> Downsides:
> 1. Output is uncompressed, so there is heavy duty work to compress.
> 2. Supports MS-Windows and Mac OS-X only.
> 3. Does not support HDCP (but then neither does XBox or iTV).
> Still, this is the first device of this type that I have seen.

That would be awsome to see some linux drivers created.  Most HDTV thru STB are dont use HDCP!  Maybe I will hold off on my HD Home run purchase to see what pans out here.
