Getting footage off cable DVR
April 16, 2010 09:16AM
There was a TV broadcast that I recorded on my DVR that I would like to use in a production (don't worry, we have permission). I was wondering if anyone knows a way I could get that into FCP in HD. If we can't, that's okay, but if we can, then that would be nicer. We're on a bit of a time crunch and this is a last minute request...so there's no time to contact the network.

Thanks!

While there may be some way to do this as data, don't forget the old school base band approach. DVR Video and Audio Out to Capture Card AV in.

Times like these I wish I had a capture card! I've just been using my built-in firewire port.

If you have a deck, you can use it the same way just change your input, and do a capture now hit play and viola. Not the prettiest, but works in a pinch.

Trouble is, the only HD input I have on either a deck or my Mac is firewire. Unless there's some cable to convert an HDMI or component signal to firewire. There's HDMI and component outputs on the DVR, but I only have a firewire input.

Oh I thought you might have a stand alone deck that would accept a component signal!
