So I was looking for how to record things on my hdmi monitor (has two hdmi ports)
http://www.amazon.com/AOC-I2353PH-23-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B0062K9LXE/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
by using intensity shuttle usb 3.0 So I was wondering if it's compatible with a macbook
http://www.amazon.com/Apple-MacBook-MD224LL-11-6-Inch-VERSION/dp/B005CWJABQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1339968331&sr=1-1&keywords=macbook+air+11
. Would that work? Please respond ASAP or I'll be like http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/smilies/pfff.gif
 
Solution
first let me tell you that the black magic and hdpvr DOES NOT record at 1080p for console gaming. They will record at 1080p but at a frame rate of 25 or 30. Xbox and ps3 run at 59.95 frames per second.

I would suggest a 500gb hdd for capturing games keep what you like and then delete the old, but it will cause your hdd to wear out faster. Just know that up front.

Your macbook air will work for recording, but if you plan on streaming with it, you will need a beefier computer.

Also make sure your macbook air has a usb 3.0, it is required by the black magic intensity pro.

Oh.. :(
So is there any way to record video from monitor (I'm using a WII2HDMI cable on my Wii so I can play it on a monitor)?
Thanks a bunch!
EDIT: I actually messed up my first post. I meant if I could use an Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle USB 3.0 with the monitor and a mac. Sorry if I confused you. Thanks again!

I don't know if a mac book air would have the guts to run a black magic, even if it is the shuttle. But if you look on the black magic website it will give you more information.

Not sure how cpu intesive the shuttle is but i was able to record on a older dell with core 2 duo and it was not listed.

You should be ok, but just in case check out what their return policy is. Email them or something like that. But I have had pretty good luck with my black magic. I have a new computer now and I broadcast with it in HD on twitch blows a hdpvr out of the water.

Thanks for the info! You really helped me a lot. I was considering the hauppage hd pvr, but the black magic intensity shuttle is better in recording (only capture device I know of that can record 1080p) but the requirements are pretty iffy. Just three last questions; how many GB of hard drive would be good, what is your new computer called, and will it work on a laptop (Macbook Air). Sorry for so many questions (and the huge block of text), but I want to be sure I'll get my money's worth. Thanks again!
