I have a PCI-E HD capture card in my desktop, it records through HDMI
Is it possible to split hdmi and record? for example, I want to record games from my PS3 as I play them on my TV, could I run HDMI from the ps3, to a splitter, then into my tv and once again in the same splitter to my pc?
If so would something like either of these work? http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-3-In-1-Out-Switch-Cable/dp/B0018DQYQ2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qi...=hdmi+splitter

Isn't output from the PS3 protected by HDCP? Will your HDMI capture device record that? I'm only aware of one device that will and only with a loophole in early releases of the driver.
Yes I forgot to mention that, ps3 is protected but my device is hdcp compliant, I can currently record from it just fine just plugging it into the pci card
No. That device is a switch not a splitter. A switch allows multiple sources to share one HDMI connection, but only transmits one source at a time. A splitter allows someone to connect one source to multiple devices at the same time. Switches are normally one-way, and do not function as splitters.
No. Passive HDMI splitters usually don 't work with HDCP compliant devices like the PS3. This powered splitter is a better choice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=...ormat=2&ref=cj

alright thanks, I did hear powered was better
I think,therefore i am a hamster.
Just wondering if something like this would work? After shipping its half the price as the one on monoprice
it says Output Video: HDMI 1.3 + HDCP1.0/1.1/1.2 under specs

A passive splitter shouldn't work with HDCP protected sources. Before the source starts transmitting it requires a handshake with the receiving device wherein they exchange cryptographic keys. With a passive splitter both devices would respond resulting in a handshake failure. Even if only one device responds the other device wouldn't be able to decrypt the resulting signal.
Just wanted to post and say thanks
I took a chance and ordered the one I linked from ebay (HDMI Splitter Amplifier Multiplier 1 x 2 Female)
was the cheapest I could find and I received it in the mail today, it works great and physically seems durable
I've got no quality loss and no problems recording
