Hello everybody Smile

I would like to know and ask, if the Matrox Mini can record laptop gameplay through a hdmi cable. NOT ps3 gameplay or xbox360, but PC gameplay recording. Could this work properly? I have a Alienware m17xR1.

Thanks you for the time! Smile

Hello and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. The reason we need to capture gameplay footage from PS3 and XBox360 is not because we block the feed, it is because they are not HDCP compliant http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-bandwidth_Digital_Content_Protection

I have check the specs from Dell and there is no mention about compliance just that there is a 1.4a HDMI output. You can definately not record DVD's or BluRay disks through the Matrox. Unless we bring this model in house and test it I can not be sure. More often than not it will not work through HDMI. I will follow up if I get any more news on this.

Hello GoxZ and thank you for your continued interest in Matrox products. Hauppauge as far as I can see is a PVR. This would fall under the same HDCP compliance issues as with laptops and Video consoles. There is no compliance issues using Component video.

Its not that I do not think it will work, we need to see what sources you are using that are HDCP compliant and what format you are coming from. If you are using component then there is no problem. No Matter what you choose PS3, BluRay player, PVR's, HandiCam, Deck, or any other HDMI output if it is not compliant you will not be able to capture using HDMI. Also if the content itself is protected, i.e. BluRay disks, you will not be able to capture through HDMI.
