The SILK website has a link to WDM drivers so that's a good sign.
Most PVRs encode into mpeg2 so as long as they can pick up the capture card it should be fine. I'd looked at the Silk before but I'd never noticed it had the WDM drivers. That should in thoery mean it will work.
Does anyone know someone that's done it?
My hope is to connect my Sky+ box to a HCPC via SDI to record to DVD. I have neither upgraded Sky box or SDI card at present. I wanted to make sure it was possible before starting to buy bits.
BTW, the new SweetSpot WDM drivers also support the PMS SDI capture card that we sell so that's another solution for you. We've tested with a handful of freeware recording applications and ShowShifter. The quality is very very good indeed.
