    I'm pretty sure nothing consumer captures HDCP content, if anything. Unless I've been missing something.

    What sort of content do you want to capture? Stuff out of your cable box? Gaming footage? There are other options available, user Gugucom has quite good information

    You need to get a dual-link DVI switch (something akin, but not exactly, to what you just linked) to support the 2560x1600 resolution your computer outputs and the 1080p signal from HDMI. I would assume that a 30" monitor would be HDCP compliant.

    A capture card is something very different from a display switch....

    That looks like a pretty good design. For your cable system.

    I'm using an EyeTV HDTV satellite receiver (a badged Digital Everywhere product called FireDTV-S2) with firewire interface to the Mac. Very good solution. I can use it with the MacPro and the MacBook Pro.

    EyeTV has a fantastic GUI for recording and playback. The receiver has a remote that works very nicely with my Macs.
