Awesome! I may buy this card, just so we can troubleshoot together!! Really looking forward to your initial tests. For machinima, if your audience is YouTube and its brethren, the 720p should be more than enough.
Great idea! I look forward to comparing results and troubleshooting.
Is it on Newegg? It wasn't when I ordered mine. I ended up ordering from amazon.
Oops, I just remembered, I made a misstatement in my original post. The DVI-HDMI adapter cable doesn't come with the Blackmagic. I ordered it from amazon, their own brand. It costs $8.37. The product link is www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TH7T2U/ref=oss_product. My apologies!
I didn't realize how complicated setting up the Intensity Pro for use with a single computer would be. I was originally going to install mine that way, but at the last minute I opted to install it in a different computer than the one running SL. It appears that I saved myself a considerable amount of hassle. It was relatively easy to set up.
@Asil, in your situation, the Hauppauge HD-PVR that I originally posted about (and then returned) might be a better choice for you than the Blackmagic.
