I have a cable box in my room and wish to connect it to my laptop, Asus N56VB. The cable box has a HDMI output, and the laptop itself has a HDMI port as well, which I know is an output only.
My question is, can I use some device, like a HDMI capture box, to watch TV in real time?
The cable box has the following connectors:
I have been told that I can use them, but it seems strange because they pass the video/audio using a HDMI cable, but as far as I know, the HDMI port on my laptop is output only.
Or maybe I need the Magewell HDMI to USB 3.0 Video Capture Dongle.
