Hey all.

I want to record video footage from my PS3 to a recording device. Can you please help me here. Is it cheaper to get a DVD recorder? I have a 250GB one but can it be used for the PS3 to the DVD's HDD?

Please, help asap.

if your dvd recorder has got component inputs then it would suffice otherwise it would just epic suck

Would depend on your DVD recorder.

If it's digital TV based, then I don't think it'd be unreasonable if it didn't, but if it's analog based, then it definitely should, providing you've got the right inputs + cables to hook up the PS3.

Could recommend me something? Like something that would work for a LCD? Or TV or Computer. I want to use this device so I can record video footage from my PS3 to a HDD and use it for my videos on youtube :)

Thanks.

The trouble is that you're not going to get anything that will record in HD (AFAIK), at least not in anything you'll find at JB.

This guy, for instance:

Two grand's worth of machine and it won't even accept a component input as a source (from the spec sheet anyway). Sure you can record HD from an HDV camcorder (I think ...) or from TV (... hrm ... not sure about that).

Point is that there are many devices out there that will do the job. Just have your HDMI connected to your TV and your S-Video connected to your recorder. YouTube doesn't do HD - it barely does SD - so you won't lose anything by using S-Video. Except that you will be able to make do with a few hundred dollars rather than several grand.
