    I've got a "little" problem here. I've been wanting to buy a good Capture Card that I can use for my 360 all year long, and I recently found out about the Intensity Shuttle.

    The Intensity Shuttle requires a USB 3.0 Port which I don't have on my Macbook Pro. I was wondering that if I used an express card, would I be able to capture video via the Intensity Shuttle?

    I would love you if you could find a way for me to use this.

    I think Lacie is proprietary for mac usb 3 devices. Try caldigit. It is open to any usb 3.0 device.

    Why not get the HDPVR or the Elgato EyeTV-HD (though it doesn't do optical). If you're wanting HDMI input, you'll need to move along; the BM Intensity (and most other commercial available HDMI caputre cards) won't do protected streams.

    To expand on this, the LaCie card's Mac USB 3.0 functionality is limited to LaCie-branded USB 3.0 hard drives. Complete junk.


    I second this. There are actually no *legal* HDCP-bypassing HDMI capture devices on the market for consumers. You'll actually get very decent results using an HD component video capture device and still be able to keep everything at 1920x1080.
