Default HDMI to USB Converter???

Hi

I know this is a little hard to believe, but I spoke to someone in an electrics store today and they mentioned that they had been told by a couple of people that there may be (soon) the ability to convert HDMI cable to USB. Is anyone aware of this, or are these people dreaming?

I am presuming that the technology is not available, mostly because of copywriting issues???

Can someone possibly shed some light on this?

thanks

I too am looking for one of these and can answer some of your questions. Did you find any? I have been trying to register over at everything USB to ask there (but their registration and feedback mechanism doesn't look like it works).

There is coded mode on HDMI, and also a pretty lame copy protection bit function that can be used on non coded materials. I don't know how copy protection bits go on public broadcasts, but as that is what an HDTV PVR recorder does, I can imagine that HDMI has it turned off too (HDMI gives 0% advantage).

There has been HDMI recorders for cameras (like Intensity Pro PCI-E) card, so maybe an USB solution is related to that.

I have been in contact with a wireless HDMI supplier, about a HDMI to USB converter. Their technology converts to JPEG2000 for transmission. JPEG2000 however is not the best choice, because of precessing power requirements and performance.

I have found an VGA to USB converter, maybe you can plug a HDMI to VGA converter into:

Non USB solutions:

Cineform is making a DVR camera recording unit based on HDMI recording and bayer cineform codec.

I have found a HDMI PVR:

We have been designing kinds of converters between Anolog and Digital signals, we don't know any HDMI to USB converter yet.

Wouldn't something like this be neat to copy from a uVerse box to a computer?

I'm visualizing a box with HDMI in from the DVR, HDMI out to the TV, and USB out to a computer.

I've got a similar question.
I would like to connect my cable box to my computer via USB cable
then connect my computer to my HD tv via HDMI cable.

By doing this will I a) still be able to view HD content on my TV?
and b) be able to use my computer as an HD DVR?

I'm not worried about required software, I just need to know if the USB cable will allow the passage of all the information that an HDMI cable would.
(Unforunately my desktop only has one HDMI input so I'm trying to find a work around)

Thanx in advance for any help/advice you can give
-Phil

Do you have a HD monitor? I can hook mine through a DVI-HDMI to my monitor. Don't get stuck on USB. You will need a audio cable as the HDMI like most times will not carry the audio.

Default hdmi newbie

I recently got a hp system and it comes with a hdmi capable monitor (on the monitor it has 2 standard usb ports on the side, a square usb port, hdmi hookup, audio and vga). With that being said, the cables supplied were hdmi-usb (both standard and the square). My computer does not have a hdmi slot.

1. Anyone know how this would work, if possible. The guide only mentioned hdmi-hdmi. Of course in fine print it mentions all features not available for all models.

2. I plan to hook up the computer to a hd-tv (no hdmi slot). My cable box has a hdmi slot that I hope is input with the cable mentioned above.

I have been thinking of different combinations I could try to make it work out side of getting a new video with either hdmi, s-video, dvi.

It seems its all based on where the usb hooks up to. If:
A) Usb goes to comp, i should be ok ( assuming the cable box is an input and it can feed it to the tv )
B) If the hdmi has to go to the comp ( can i then try to use the hdmi slot on the monitor and then connect it to the cable box with the usb or the opposite where i connect the usb to the monitor and then feed it to the cable box ).

If this sounds confusing, so am i. First time working with hdmi .

It is very reliable for recording. Because of the way the software works the streaming will be SD, but the recordings will be HD. It uses component video though, not HDMI.
