this might seem a bit weird but here is what i want a capture card for:
- play playstation 3 games in a window on my computer screen, preferably the window should be resizable
- there should be no noticable delay/lag
- connection over hdmi for good image quality
I know the PS3's HDMI signal is HDCP protected but does that mean a capture card wouldn't even show a picture or just that it won't be able to record it?
Would an AVerMedia Live Gamer HD Lite work for what i want to do with no recording, just playing on my computer screen?

If all you really want to do is run your ps3 on your PC monitor, why not just run a long enough HDMI cable? That would be the end of it.
I want to be able to have all my stuff on the same screen at once. Like playing PS3 while checking stuff on the internet and watching videos or TV. I do it the same way when i play pc games.
And no, i don't want the PS3 on a different screen or on an HDMI switch or something. I want it in a window on my computer screen.
I know that you do not want to hear it, but just displaying the H.264 video output from the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD Lite is very likely introduce enough delay to make playing a game difficult. That is why most HD game capture cards include a video and audio pass-through of some kind.
You can get an HDCP stripper for ~US$20. The old Avermedia AverTV HD PVR with the original drivers (or cracked drivers) can display and capture HDCP protected HDMI signals with minimal lag.
All the h.264 hardware encoder capture devices have about a half second lag between the live signal and what you see on the computer monitor.
@jagabo is this the one? http://www.amazon.com/Avertv-Definition-Analog-Capture-MTVHDDVRR/dp/B002SQE1O0
And it would be better for what i want to do than the AVerMedia Live Gamer HD Lite?
I was thinking the hardware encoder would only do the encoding when recording but not when just watching.
Also how much lag are we talking about when you say minmal? Is it noticable when playing?
It might be easier just to buy a no name tablet and have that at your side while gaming. You can do email and everything else without a hitch. You can get them new under a 100.00 USD nowadays or less if you buy used.
Just something to consider.
Either that or look for a used hauppauge hdpvr1. You can use component cables and if you have at least a q6600 quad core equivalent processor its virtually lag free. There's lag on a dual core FYI.

The Avertv HD DVR PCI-e MTVHDDVRR, which is supposed to use software that is capable of displaying video with minimal lag, uses software to encode.

As said above by users jagabo and usually_quiet, AverTV C027/727 + AmarecTV will provide your request.
