Hooked up a PCI Express Video Capture Card for HDMI, DVI and Component - 1080p from StarTech. Connected the Sky+ box to the card using an HDMI cable.

I can view the content but I cannot record it. When I hit the red button the content is lost and I get 'Copy Protected Content - HDCP'. When I change anything in the Record Settings I regain the content on the pc monitor, but I cannot record.

There has to be a way of being able to record from the Sky+ box to the computer using this card. If I need to compromise, the recording doesn't need to be HD, just as good as I can get.

Do you have a legal subscription to Skybox?

Yes I've got aa subscription with Sky, have had for years for tv, phone and broadband. All I'm wanting to do is record programs in a certain topic on the pc hard drive. I'm able to record from the sky box to the dvd recorder, but I then need to transfer the data on the dvd to the hard drive. I thought the video card is just a quicker way of doing the job.
