This is similar to this question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Digital_Living/Hardware/Home_Theater/Q_25716525.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+360+captur+video+xbox
I currently run HDMI from my 360 to my TV. My 360 is the the new 360 slim. I have the standard HD/RCA cable that came with it, as well as my HDMI cable i use currently.
I'd like to capture video while I play. So run HDMI to my TV and something to my PC. Reason I say 'something' is because as long as it is decent enough quality to "see the bad guys" and the scores in the game, I don't care about the rest. Just so people can watch replays and make out what is happening. I understand the higher def you go the more money you spend. I'm looking to spend at most $100 for software and hardware. Regardless, I want to continue playing on my tv in HD.
Can I run HDMI out of the xbox to my TV along with the RCA to my pc since the xbox has 2 outputs? Or does it use 'either/or' of the outputs?
If not, would I be able to split HDMI to a usb and do this without a capture card? Or is there a cheap HDMI capture card with software?
I've looked around a little and wasn't sure what I was looking at as I've never done video capture before other than running my video camera thru firewire.
