I want one for legitimate reasons, not for some organisation's definition of pirating...
I'm interested for the purpose of capturing HD audio (normally found in BD's & PS3 Games, rarely XB360) via HDMI,
running it through a HRTF filter (for 2ch simulated surround), & then out through my modded Essence ST.
I realise with BD movies I can already do this in windows without the need for a capture card, so long as I have a PAP compliant card, BD reader, & softplayer that can do DH or similar.
And it's irrelevant whether my card is PAP compliant in Linux, so once the BD is ripped I should also be able to do this.
But as my Essence ST is not PAP compliant, it's not possible to handle the HD audio stream via the PAP process in Windows.
Capturing BD output from my PS3 via HDMI (once HDCP is stripped) should remove the PAP burden, then hopefully I can pass the signal to a HRTF filter, and then onto my Essence ST.
Another reason for HDMI capture is HD audio from console games...
Again I want my Essence ST to be the final DAC in the chain, not an AVR.
The only concern I have is desync, but if audio & video are passed to the capture device & video "passed-through", then clocking should remain "fairly" in-sync.
Of course because of the post-processing assoc/w running through a filter and then on to the ST, tweaking of timings will be necessary.
Sorry if this doesn't clearly convey what I'm wanting, write-up is quite rushed, strapped for time right now.
Thank-you for your time/thoughts/advice! All the best.

AFAIK not exist ready to use capture card with HDCP - or You build similar cardy by yourself, or You write software to card that already exist.
that's odd, I've seen users @Doom9 mention a few cards that can capture hdcp sources.
Hmmm i never saw anyone that have legal HDMI + HDCP capture card.
Oh I'm not arguing it'll be legal, at least according to the the US's DMCA...
But I don't want to circumvent HDCP for illegitimate purposes e.g. copying copyright content.
Here's one example of a card that can capture hdcp sources
There's one or two other examples if i recall correctly...
So You can as i wrote earlier write own software for HDMI card - I think that all HDMI capture cards are able to use HDCP but HDCP is not supported due of licensing policy of the HDCP Org. point of view. Intensity from Black Magick is able to capture HDMI with HDCP from hardware point of view but HDCP is not supported at the software point of view at all - so... after releasing HDCP key there some small chance for creating such software but it will be illegal from law point of view and IMO this is valid for all products on market ie any HDMI capture will not support HDCP officially. Sorry - blame for this http://www.digital-cp.com/
I realise avermedia doesn't officially support it, but the hole is there on earlier drivers.
There's definitely a few solutions out there that'll allow one to capture hdcp sources...
What I don't know is if I can manipulate that source's audio in the way I've described.
And will audio & video become too desynched....
I imagine some desync would be inevitable, so how would one correct that?
If you just want the audio, I believe the HDFury has S/PDIF output. You could split the HDMI signal and connect the S/PDIF out on the HDFury to your sound card's digital input. If you connect the other end of the HDMI splitter to a TV set, it's possible the display lag on the TV and the audio lag from the capture->process->output step might match up."I can wire anything directly into anything!" - Professor Farnsworth
IMO none of known to me, legal capture cards are equipped with HDCP - HDCP key is given after signing license with http://www.digital-cp.com/ by http://www.digital-cp.com/ .
Compensation is quite easy - You need to buffer video if audio latency is higher than time of half frame (but in modern world - TV sets are usually equipped with video processing functionality which introduce some buffers - usually 3 - 5 frames thus audio path need to be delayed proper amount of time so IMO Your audio probably will be not out of sync as You think)
Just need to determine that there's definitely a device which can capture hdcp sources.
I will now follow some leads I've got more closely....
IMO - old TV with HDMI receiver as separate IC - most of them expose RAW video to further processing also they deal with HDCP - audio is extracted as digital stream (problem with older HDMI rev is that only small amount of modern codecs is supported).

Many S/PDIF can support few Mbps so in theory even higher quality codecs can work - AFAIR S/PDIF work for sure for 192 ksps with 2 channel 24 bit PCM audio
The staff has stop this habit of thinking that everything is not official is illegal
HD AVERTV Trick is so nice e llegal and will do everything you need, record HDCP sources via HDMI .
Hahaha - yes we can pretend or playing with words but... don't take me wrong - i don't like HDCP - i think that this is stupid, weak protection and against customers but trick remain trick.
Weird, I didn't get any emails about these posts.
I'm hoping one day Happauge will release a similar device with HDMI-in...
With some "community hacking" it could become become the ultimate capture/transcoding device.
It's already a very useful device, both in the Windows & Linux community.
I will definitely look more closely at it to see if there's any limitations, thanks!
Avermedia may have deliberately ensured there was a "gap", to get a marketing edge over competitors.
If true then they'd be in breach of their licensing agreement with Intel...
A tricky thing for Intel to prove, plus the DMCA has little influence in Chinese/Taiwanese courts anyway.

Hauppauge does make a card with HDMI input http://www.hauppauge.com/site/products/data_colossus.html However, like the AverMedia card (when not using a hack), it does not record HDCP protected content.
The actual hard part is that you want to capture the HD audio. The AVerTV card won't even do more than 2 channel PCM, let alone any type of bitstream. The HDMI chip used is capable of high-rate LPCM but not Dolby/DTS, and in any event the drivers support neither.
Some foreign HDMI cards that have SPDIF allow 5.1 over HDMI, but I don't know if they allow multichan PCM or the compressed HD formats. And who knows whether there's any way to bypass HDCP on those.
One such card is Korea's Skydigital SKYHD CaptureX (sold as ICONBIT Spider Hybrid HD Recorder E710 in Russia). It actually uses two of the same chips as the AVerTV, but according to press photos uses a newer HDMI chip, the SiI9135ACTU. Though an Asian forum I saw claimed it uses the SiI9013 like the HD DVR. In any event, they say "PCM, AC3, DTS" with no channel counts or anything else. And their capture software only includes decoder setup for the vanilla flavours of those codecs.

What's the point of it being a digital HDMI capture card, if it can't do at least 6-ch LPCM!?
I wasn't concerned about whether it supported DD/DTS, I was hoping it'd support at least 6-ch LPCM...
So that I can redirect that input to a filter, turn it into 2-ch simulated surround, & then redirect that output to my Essence.

There is a hope - after HDCP master key leakage... there is a hope...
The Hauppauge card was just released and there is at present no known hack that allows HDCP protected content to be recorded. I suspect the audio capabilities of the Hauppauge Colossus are much like the USB Hauppauge HD PVR.

It isn't mentioned on any of the Euro sites (where hauppauge is based) or the Singapore one, only the US site.
I wonder if the analogue side is exactly the same as the hdpvr, or if there's deficits or improvements.
Looks like it's coming to Australia very soon, their main distributor already has it up on their site.
Looks like they'll be selling directly from their webstore too, it may be cheaper buying "direct" than from a local retailer.
It looks very cool, I hope it has all the analogue capture features (or better) of the HD-PVR.
And I hope to god a HDCP "work around" comes along very soon for it's digital/HDMI capture.
Then again all the "work arounds" for hdmi capture devices I've seen so far, do a great job w/HDCP video sources, but very little with the source's audio.
