Record Sky Box Remove HDCP

View HD HDMI Splitter

I posted a link to this little box on Twitter last week and everyone wanted to know more. If you are trying to record from a Sky Box you will find that the signal is encoded (meaning all you will get is a blue screen). For the last few years I have been recording to a DVD recorder and then transferring from that.

This device below, which you can get from Amazon here, strips out the HDCP encoding. Couldn’t be easier.

This will only split the HDMI feed and you will need something like this or this to get  a live feed into your software – but a great piece of inexpensive kit.
