    Just got my black magic intensity extreme that I preordered from OWC.

    It's a pretty cool Thunderbolt break out box that lets you capture hdmi, component and SD video. Also useful to monitor your edit from FCP X.

    I did a cheesy unboxing video with my iPhone.

    how are you finding it?

    I am thinking of buying one for my xbox but for two reasons;

    1) Obviously capturing

    2) Can you use the viewer full screen and watch the input device in realtime without any lag? Hoping that my iMac can be used as a monitor through thunderbolt as well as capture?

    Cheers

    Can you use this to play PS3 games on your iMac?

    Via HDMI probably not. If it's anything like the Intensity PCI-e card, then it blocks any video with HDCP attached to it.

    Definitely not. HDMI capture devices will not pass HDCP signals for copyright reasons.

    Component video. Or buy an box that can fool the HDCP encryption and put that between the PS3 and the Intensity Extreme. All the boxes in the signal chain could introduce lag though so I don't know how well it would work as a way to play your PS3 games on the iMac's screen.

    I've been looking for a decent $200 monitor with HDMI and component inputs in the meantime, but I can't find anything great.

    You're generally only going to find analog component video connections on higher-end monitors (they're generally well over $200) and even then, they're kind of a dying breed.

    What type of MBP do you have? I am having trouble setting the extreme up on my 13in MBP
