For that past few years, the Black Magic Design Intensity Pro has been my reliable pathway to Xbox 360, iPad and iPhone captures. Recently, I found that my iPhone 5′s output was still seen a valid signal but the neither the Xbox 360 nor the iPad provided a signal.
Strangely, I could hook up my AppleTV to the Intensity Pro and get an iPad output if I sent the video to the AppleTV via AirPlay. This is not an accept workaround. I don’t relish the idea of having to move the AppleTV about the house. Plus, it doesn’t solve the problem of capturing from other devices, like the Xbox, which doesn’t support AirPlay.
Sooooo, I purchased the Elgato Gaming Capture HD. I’ll be putting it through its paces.
