    Since making the switch to Mac over the last year, I have been using my HP Elite desktop as a media center for my new 70" LED tv in my living room. I would like to be able to record mainly the upcoming college football season and maybe some PS3 or 360 gameplay. I know that HDMI is protected but I have seen where some can get around the HDCP. Would this setup allow me to do this:

    1. AVERMEDIA Game Broadcaster HD Record and Stream PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and iPad2 in 1080p60 TV Tuners and Video Capture C127 Black

    2. Sewell 2 Port 1x2 Powered Hdmi Splitter V 1.3b (Up to 1080p) 3D Certified

    3. And i would use a program called FRAPS to record.

    Thanks for the help

    I don't know of to many stations that broadcast in 1080p, let alone sports stations (not saying there isn't one out there, I just haven't come across it), some do 720p and 1080i, but not 1080p. Of course this might not be the case anymore.
