Good to know. I'll know what to expect when I finally upgrade to an
HD box from TW.
To take this a step further, what's to stop someone from using a
Component->HDMI transcoder to feed input to this thing? Of course
~$500 overall just ain't worth it for me, but some might consider that
close to "consumer" level.
But I think you hit the nail on the head when you wrote "hardware
_encoding_ capture cards..." Just like the original poster stated,
this does no compression. So disk and/or processor would also become
big cost factors.
