I am wanting to buy the HD PVR unit mainly to record my Xbox 360 gameplay in HD. My main problem is that my main desktop PC with very good sepcs (CPU and GPU wise) is 25~35 meters away from my Xbox 360 so USB cable extension is out of the way.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop which about 3 years old (Dual core 1.7GHz), 1GB RAM and Onboard Graphics (9400 I think). Running Windows 7 premium just fine.
I was thinking to hook up the HD PVR to the laptop while recording gameplay and then transferring the files over the network from laptop to desktop to do final editing or rendering with Sony Vegas Pro.
So will HD PVR unit work with the laptop fine? I am not going to do any playback at all on the laptop. It's just going to be used as a medium to record the gameplay and from there I will transfer it to desktop for playback/editing.
Anyone know if it will record gameplay on a onboard graphics laptop?
