I am in the dilemma whether going for SKY HD or SD package. My criterion is in which case I can capture a live broadcast in better quality. Some say that to capture HD is nearly impossible now that new SKY hd boxes do not have output components and there is copyright protection system disabling the HDMI from sending data to a recorder... I read that using FloppyDTV S2 with a Dragon t.rex cam module can make it happen (record live hd material in your pc). If I go the SD route and buy the simple package with the Sky box (not the pvr) what is the best way to capture while watching a programme? Tv tuners are considered to produce lesser quality than TV capture cards, right? I'd better get a capture card or record straight to a dvd?I am talking recording it straight while watching the programme for the first time. If capture card is the better solution between the two (dvd-r) which model and brand would you recommend and what inputs should my GPU/pc should have to get the best result? And something else, I heard that if you have SKy hd box and you record in SD quality, the SD quality you get is better than if you had the SD Sky package. Is it possible with no output components to record the hd programmes in SD quality using SKy HD box? What is the best way? Sorry for the too many questions but I've been searching for over a week and I can not reach a decision between SKY SD package and HD. And as I said in the beginning capture quality is the main criterion. I'd like to be able to get a 720x576 resolution at least... Thank you... Some solutions I found to record in SD using Sky (no pvr) box 1. Dazzle DVD Recorder 2. Pinnacle Video Transfer 3. Cielplus Card 4. FloppyDTV S2 (needs Dragon T.rex cam module) 5. Pinnacle Studio MovieBoard PCI Capture Card Please comment taking into consideration that we want the best possible quality.
