Capture HDMI using a laptop!

Guys, this is pretty crazy, but I think I've figured out how to capture HDMI using a laptop.

Now take note, it'll require expresscard (read: 17-inch MacBook Pro) but I think it'll work.

Basically, there's a company called LeCroy who makes an expresscard -> PCIe adapter. They're pretty quiet about letting anyone know the device even exists.

Combine that with a BlackMagic Intensity, and you're in business.

If you don't have an expresscard slot, you can still probably do it by following some sketchy instructions about removing WiFi from a Mac.

Err what's up with one of these? http://www.matrox.com/video/en/products/mac/mxo2_family/mxo2_mini/ I think it might even be cheaper than your solution.
