I just wanted to post an update on my solution.
I bought an Avermedia Game Capture HD
and a HDMI to component converter
The Game Capture HD records up to 720p at 60fps. Basically, I run a DVI to HDMI cable to the ViewHD. Then run the component signal into the Game Capture HD. It's a shame that it doesn't take hdmi directly.
Once you have recorded your performance you can transfer the AVI file by connecting a usb stick and transferring the file to your computer for editing. I've recorded up to 10min with no drift or lag. My workflow: durring performance, record the ableton session separately and after it's been cleaned up and mastered then re-line up the audio with file from the Game Capture.
Hope this helps someone.
Hi All, I really like the Game Capture HD. Now I just run the audio and video right into the Game Capture and record. Sync is fine, Levels pre-set. Out of the Avermedia I get a .avi(H.264) at 60fps. I dump that to a USB (this interface to do so is wonky but it works). Load on to my Mac (Mountain Lion). Run the following ffmpeg command to convert to .mp4.
ffmpeg -i 140203-1229.avi -vcodec copy -acodec copy avi_cog.mp4
Upload to You Tube. Everything in this playlist is recorded with the Avermedia.
Now, on a whim I decided to check out the latest from Avermedia. I may consider upgrading. This one has HDMI in/passthrough direct upload to YouTube. Apparently recording your in-game performance is extremely popular now.
