  2. The only way to record from a TV is to point a video camera at the screen and record.

    Well, as I understand it, some smart tvs allow you to use a usb-stick and, theoretically, allow you to record what you are watching. No additional hardware/software required.

    However, many streams will be DRM protected and, I guess, such a recording will not have access to the keys and you end up with an un-playable recording.


    And add to that discussion about recording subscription services such as Netflix is against forum rules.

    I doubt that the apps used to supply streaming video to the TV are set up to allow users to record anything via the TV's recording function.

    In any case, since the video files recorded by the TV from other sources (tuners, smart cards) that allow recording are encrypted so that only the individual TV that made the recording can be used to view them, the recordings made by a TV's recording function are mainly useful for watching at a more convenient time.

    The only output from the TV as far as I know is the ARC HDMI (Audio return channel), So you can probably record audio if you have a way to strip the copy protection, that's it.

    I sometimes recorded football matches on my Smart TV from Samsung, which were on TV. To do this, I used a flash drive and a built-in video recording function on the screen on Samsung TV. Now I've switched to Hisens TV and I'm using an external hard drive. When I couldn't find the remote, I used life hacks to control Smart TV without it. But you can't record everything in a row from your screen. For example, Netflix stops displaying content if video capture is running.

    How can you record from a TV? You must be using a streaming media player with internet and built in hard drive and your TV is just displaying the video from the HDMI port of the media player, There is no video output from TV.

  8. You can't record from a TV, but what you can do is get a Fire Stick, a HDMI splitter, and a ClonerAlliance box. But that costs like $300 total.

    A tv has just no output connection, use an output from tuner or decoder box have a converter/scaler with HDMI passthrough, and record with a HDMI recorder that records to flash card/drive, for optimal quality and capture speed.

    Not going to work unless you have some method to bypass HDCP.
