DELL actually bowed down to the HDMI consortium and paid the fees!
Moome is the MUX-HD inventing engineer, direct all questions about it's availability to him. Purchased a used one from Canada but a new model is coming out in Taiwan to be anounced sometime next month.

Does this mean it simply won't display the captured video, or does that mean that it won't even capture it period?
it seems to me that this kind of device working is more or less at the whim of your service provider, and most of them seem to want to slather DRM all over everything.
I think I might wait before I get one of these. If I'm not able to burn what I record to Blu-Ray, then it's not worth it.
You can still capture your STB's output w/a Colossus if your STB has component-out...
I'm not sure about the US, but I'm pretty sure providers here in Oz aren't allowed to sell STB's with only HDMI-out.
Capturing via component-out is what's called exploiting the "analogue hole", as HDCP encryption doesn't apply to it.
Some people have had success capturing via HDMI-out, but only because their cable co's STB is a bit older, & doesn't implement HDCP, yet.
yep, how lame & sus. is that... damn evil doers...
I use a coax to optical converter (my optical splitter wouldn't work) to send the digital audio to the 1212 and an optical cable hooked to the out but not hooked to anything else to fool the 1212 into thinking it's doing digital audio passthrough or it won't record 5.1 audio and I have the optical from the STB hooked to my receiver.
This way, I don't have to keep messing with cables every time I need to record something or leave the 1212 on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year when I only use it a few times a year. I returned the Cox DVR because I had to get up and reboot the box 15 or 20 times a week since they went to the Passport software and hardly ever had a chance to even record anything. They said in July that they're supposed to get new Hardware and software so hopefully I'll be able to get another DVR STB before football season starts or be forced to switch to Dish. I hate doing contracts though.
WMC on WIN 7 ??
I do just fine with the HD - PVR USB version ... on a WIN 7 x64 Ultimate install but how do I see it with the Media Center Edition in WIN X64

Not illegal, you just risk getting sued if you sell lots of these in the US. The HDCP keys are provided by the chip manufacturer and are not stolen. By not re-encrypting the HDMI output, MUX-HD is only "not compliant" to HDCP certification. His other HDMI boards that insert into projectors "are compliant" because you can not use or record the un-encrypted HDMI video stream. Inserted boards directly connect to display device and meet HDCP requirements. Moome is a friend of mine who is trying to make a living in a niche market, and more power to him. MUX-HD is only liable in the USA, his device sells all over the world and other countries think the restrictions on HDMI are a joke. He has a new product the MUX-FHD with 2 HDMI outputs. Don't know the details yet, came out this month.
You do have a point though, at $285 for a MUX-HD, Cable card to record to TIVO HD might be an easier seemless solution. AT&T UVERSE does not offer a cable card as they are technically an "ISP" with streaming TV service. They don't have to provide a method to record HD content according to the FCC law taking affect in July 2011 for all "cable and satelite" providers.

I'm not sure where to ask this, but i can't get my collosus to accept an hdmi signal with a 1366x768 resolution. Showbiz freezes when accepting the signal. I have an hdmi splitter and I play my xbox 360 at my tv's native res for best performance and would like to capture at that res. Is this a driver issue or is the card just not capable of accepting that resolution on hdmi? Everything works fine if I use 720p or 1080p.
It wouldn't surprise me if the Colossus was limited to broadcast resolutions: 1280x720p60, 1920x1080i30.
HELP need to know of someone that is recording HDMI flawlessly on the Collosus,
WHat Processor, and Video card are you using.
I would like to know if I have to upgrade to a Intel i7 from a Core 2 DUO
or do I have to get a PCIe video cards I only have a PCI video card because mu MOBO ony has 1 pCie slot
I record HDMI with lag on a Core2 DUo machine with Accelerarion turned off because on it freezes I have a Geforce 6200 NvidiaPCI onle
Thing is you do not need Intel i7, The keys things it the video card it self
The 6200 is dog your best beat is Radeon HD 5/6000 series or GeForce G/GT series or older GeForce 9 series
This what I have but for gaming with SageTV
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Final ver
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition (OC 3.2Gz)
Corsair XMS2 DDR2 4x2GB 8GB (CM2X2048-6400C5)
Diamond ATI Radeon HD5850 (5850PE51G)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB
Microsoft SideWinder Precision Racing Wheel USB
Microsoft SideWinder Precision 2 USB
Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard
Logitech MX400 Performance Laser Mouse
Samsung SyncMaster 2233SW
My SageTV server which used for capture only has low end ATI HD3400 and Athlon 64 X2 6000+ it work just fine.
You probably can use the Colossus for VHS to H.264 transfers, but if it is like the competing Black Magic Intensity products, the Hauppauge HDPVR USB and the AVerTV HD DVR, it will be very sensitive to drop-outs and time base errors.
I see, to bad that it doenīs allow lossless, i donīt really see the use of this famous on-the-fly compression, i want to be the one to control the compression fully. i donīt think i am alone on this, but is there any card which is like this (HD and everything) that does support uncompressed, virtualdub etc?

Looks like it. The picture looks to be of the same device as at Amazon.com (I added a link above).
Yeah, and same price range.
So with this card, i can capture, analog sources (VCR, Gamecube, N64 and so on), and digital sources (Xbox 360 and such) with no problems?
I mean, i just need to setup size and such, and pal etc.
Guess it only applies for analog, as digital is correct from start, or am i wrong?
Captain Audio, do you have this card?
if so, how does the settings look like in virtualdub, Set format, frame size etc, for both analog and digital.
And i read that itīs impossible to capture 1080i uncompressed (1080i = 1080p30?), how about lagarith with yuv2 or something, as fraps can handle it, i donīt see a problem.
Yes. 2 cards. My Desktop PC have one and other in my HTPC.
Never use Lagarith. Ut Video Codec (Many Tks to Jagabo for excellent tip) works flawless at 1080i (YUV2 or RGB mode). I record normal on AMARECTV or VIRTUALDUB softwares.
Theres a nothing impossible to AVERTV HD and "Ninja" drivers
Any question, reply.
Claudio is my name, Cauptain is nick
Can i call you, Captain Audio;D?
But this makes things very interesting, if what you say is true. Sounds like a truly amazing card!;D
The one i got now is an old relic i bought from someone, though itīs doing itīs job (first capture card i had so canīt compare).
Hmm, Jagabo recommended Ut Video Codec, then it must be nice, he has helped me as well and is a knowledgeable person from what i graps
Can i hear comparison about Lagarith and Ut Video Codec please;D?
Also, is it high quality inputs and such, i mean, no noise from audio and video, of course there is always some, but you know;P
i think it only matters for analog though, as i think digital is either 100% signal, or 0%. May be wrong.
