[FFmpeg-user] Looking for an HDMI/Component Capture Card

I am currently capturing off of HDMI with a Black Magic Intensity Pro (BM
Pro as I like to call it) on linux using this fancy little tool:

It took a bit of an effort to get going and had to mess with finding the
right version of libav and the black magic SDK. Also, you need to know your
input source resolution and format, otherwise it just fails. Through trial
and error I was able to get it to work. I just end up writing the data to a
pipe and then feeding it directly to ffmpeg.

Hope that helps
