I have DNTV Scheduler Pro setup and working perfectly but I recently got an Apple TV that plugs into the HDMI IN port on my computer. Is there any way to record the output from the Apple TV using DNTV Scheduler Pro?

Not directly answering your question, but a few things to consider...

Is it really an 'in' port, ie it's a capture card, or is it a port that allows you to display an external HDMI source on the computer's monitor. Several all-in-one style computers have this option but you can't capture with it, nor do anything else with either.

The next stumbling point would be HDCP. Apple TV players support HDCP on the output. I'm not sure if its forced on for all content, or just content that specifically requests it. Pretty much all capture devices do not support HDCP so you may find that, even if the port is a capture port, you will need additional hardware to strip the HDCP. Such items are fairly readily available - ebay search for a HDMI splitter box and then Google search to see if it is also a HDCP stripper.

Now for the actual question...

If it is a capture port and presents itself as if it were an analogue capture card, I can't see why DNTV's analogue capture support wouldn't work, if you have all the requisite MPEG2 encoders etc installed. Crank up virtualdub in capture mode and see if it can connect to the HDMI capture device and display a picture. If it can there's, IMO, a pretty good chance DNTV will work too.

Many thanks foir the indepth feedback DrP.

The laptop is an Alienware M18x R2 so the HDMI IN is not a capture card just used to stream video from third party devices such as XBox, PS4 on to the laptops screen. Apparently gamers use it to capture parts of games ( I can only assume using screen capture programs).

Basically that is what i want to do, connect my AppleTV and capture video and sound on my laptop.

I doubt HDCP will be an issue but it might.

Any suggestions on a reliable screen capture program? VLC is the only one I can find that might work. Still have to try it first.

cheers
