The HD Personal Video Recorder 2 Gaming Edition from Hauppauge! allows you to record gameplay from your preferred gaming console in Full HD 1080p video. With HDMI input and output ports as well a component video input port, this personal video recorder supports the Xbox 360, the Playstation 3 as well as the PC. Also, the no-delay HDMI video passthrough allows you to record and play in real time.

Recorded video will automatically be compressed in the H.264 video format (often used in Blu-ray Discs). This personal video recorder can record videos at Full HD 1080p resolution and at 30 frames per second (fps). However, there are exceptions to this rule. In order to achieve Full HD 1080p at 30 fps, the content being recorded through HDMI must not use HDCP protection.

Xbox 360 games can be recorded through HDMI at 1080p at 30fps, but Playstation 3 games use HDCP protection. For Playstation 3, you will have to use the included component video cable and as a result, will only be able to record in 1080i. The Wii U can also use the HDMI cable like the Xbox 360. However, if you want to record the older Wii system, you have to connect the yellow cable from the Wii to the Blue connector of the AV cable. Then connect the red and white audio cables from the Wii to the corresponding connectors on the AV cable. Finally, in Showbiz or Hauppauge Capture, you have to select Composite under Video Input and Line In under Audio Input. This same method can be used to record your Playstation 2 as well.

No-Delay HDMI Video Passthrough at Full HD 1080p
With a no-delay HDMI video passthrough, you'll be able to play in Full HD 1080p at 60 fps and record in Full HD 1080p at 30 fps at the same time. Also, recording doesn't slow down your computer because all the encoding is done on the personal video encoder itself. There is a catch, though. The source being recorded from HDMI must not use the HDCP standard. If it does, you will have to use the included component video cable and will only be able to record in 1080i
Port Authority
With an HDMI input port and an HDMI output port, you'll be able to play and record at the same time. Plus, HDMI supports both video and audio signals in a single cable so there's less hassle when it comes to cable management. There is also a component input port, which provides an alternative to HDMI, in case the content you want to record uses the HDCP standard. A USB port is used to connect this personal video recorder to your computer in order to save the recorded video onto its hard drive
ArcSoft ShowBiz
This personal video recorder comes bundled with the ArcSoft ShowBiz software. The ArcSoft ShowBiz software allows you to record video, edit recorded footage with the video editor and even upload videos straight to YouTube (Internet access required)
Top Mounted Record Button
The traditional way of recording gameplay or video content would have been by opening up ArcSoft ShowBiz on your connected computer and pressing Record. This personal video recorder also has a top-mounted Record button on the personal video recorder itself so you can record video directly from it. Just press the Record button once and ShowBiz will open on your computer and automatically start recording. If you want to stop recording, just press the top-mounted Record button again
