I have a client that needs to transfer a recording from his DVR to his computer.  So he needs video capture software (says he has Debut Video Capture).  Read on the internet that Windows Movie Maker will work as well.  Any thoughts on the software side of this????
Next, I see he also needs a "video capture device".  This is where I'm a bit confussed.  Google search as a ton of different devices and I don't even know where to start.  My client says he purschased a "cable with dual HDMI male heads on it".  He connected one end to his DVR and the other to his laptop.  I think this way it nots working.  Doesn't he need some kind of converter box on this cable.  In other words, the cable alone work do the trick, will it?  
Thank You.
