I'm looking to purchase an HD capture card for my linux video server and I need something that has component inputs on it. I read that this card has them on a site reviewing it, but was unable to find confirmation on the specs page. If anyone has this card and knows for sure, the info would be great (one hates to throw down $129 for a card that won't do the job:)

Cheers.

It doesn't have component inputs, those cards cost much more. Try searching the forums for 'component'.

I think this product

http://blackmagic-design.net/products/hd/

(DecLink HD Studio)

is about the cheapest you can do it.

Getting the uncompressed video to MPEG is left as an exercise. (of course with a monstrous drive (which you'll need in any case) and a few powerful processors, you can do it all in software)

the instructions that came with my 5500 card claim it has a component input, but I'm fairly certain what they meant was composite and just used the wrong word. The card has S-Video and composite (RCA) inputs only.
