Unattended Recording

Hi,

Does anyone know of a Macintosh program that will allow me to record Component Video through my BlackMagic Intensity pro like a DVR or VCR? I don't mind doing it the old fashioned way ie.; set the start time and tell it how long.... and then walk away with the cable box tuned to the right channel.

I would feel ahead of the game if I could just record the cable signals I'm paying for in HD with what I have at hand unattended on a schedule, without paying "rent" for a DVR unit.

The USB and PCI "unencrypted QAM" and ATSC hardware/software combinations out there are useless tha way that Time Warner Cable delivers the signal to me. I can get an y channel I'm paying for just fine through the component connections, I'm just looking to do timed recording this way.

Thanks!

Let's try it this way.............................................
Is there a hardware encoder that accepts COMPONENT input and outputs through Firewire, USB and records in real time to mpeg2?


Or is there a solution that records through COMPONENT input directly to DVD?

Help...........

Wow. That looks genuinely cool and exciting. Does any one have experience with the recording quality and stability of this device?

(I feel like getting one already!)

Also,

VLC Media player works with capture devices utilizing their hardware capabilities. May be worth a try.

and it doesn't do HD.
