I’ve been asking about this for a while in an older thread about recording games but I seem to have hit a road block. I have the ASUS “Evo” Tv located here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236049. I figure that a specific thread for this will be useful to many who picked up the TV.
The problem with the monitor (it’s actually not a TV as most know) is that it doesn’t have component inputs. Most recording devices accept the output from your PS3’s component cables and then offer their own output which you then hook back up to your TV. This allows you to both play and record at the same time.
However, the ASUS TV doesn’t have component inputs. It has HDMI, DVI, and VGA only. So once you run your PS3’s component output through your capture device (Hava, Hauppauge, etc) you apparently can’t hook it up to your TV.
I am wondering if anyone can suggest a solution to this. I want to record SFIV matches and play in HD. I don’t care about the quality of the match recordings as long as they have a good frame rate.(SD is perfectly fine) and there is no lag while playing.
I have looked at component to dvi converters. These converters only accept the video part of the component cables (Red, Green, Blue) so even if this worked, it looks like I will be missing audio, which is not acceptable for me.
Perhaps I am missing something here. Maybe some sort of cable splitting solution would work, but I don’t have any ideas. (Not very familiar with cables.) Can anybody offer suggestions or their own solutions?
