Record and playback high definition TV signals
Authored by: washkow on Dec 17, '09 06:14:06AM

I plugged a firewire (the old one that came with the iPod from back in the day) into the cable box and then into both my iMac and MacBook (both with Intels) and opened the AVC Browser. It seems to recognize the box (a time warner cable SA 8300HDC from New York City), and when I go to look at the viewer, it properly opens VLC and gives me a UDP address, and occasionally, when I reset the box or turn it on and then off, it shows me a very very choppy picture for one second, but then it stalls and I am left looking at a static choppy picture. Is something the matter? I have tried this both with cable channels and regular network, both HD and SD. I also know that the computer is able to change channels on the cable box, so something is going on, but no picture. Can I get my computer to at least show the picture? Recording would be awesome too!
