Lately I have had the need to do real time video capture from HDMI devices as of late for a project, and while looking around the internet found that all of the capture cards that are aimed at gamers (windows / OSX support only) or full blown production capture (Very expensive, more inputs than I need). The other downside is that all of these options either have no Linux drivers at all, or if they do, they have a Linux driver that is behind an NDA, and those cards are in the $800+ range.
Looking around more, I wondered if you could hack up something that just so happened to do HDMI capture and hijack off that, It happened that my prayers were heard and danman made a blog post about hacking up IP based HDMI extenders to dump the output. Link ( Archive 1 | Archive 2 )
