Colossus records HDMI video from PC gaming systems in HD, plus can record HDMI directly from an Xbox 360 or from a PS3 using Component Video input. Colossus also records Component Video (YCrCb) from cable TV and satellite set top boxes, with a built-in IR blaster to automatically change TV channels for scheduled recordings. With the Colossus HDMI input port, you can record HD video at up to 1080i from any un-encrypted HDMI source! Note: Unencrypted HDMI comes from the Xbox 360 plus most video cameras. Most cable and satellite TV set top boxes encrypt HDMI output, so you cannot record from these sources. Audio is recorded using two channel stereo or optical audio with five channel Dolby AC3. The optical audio for AC3 is a passthrough: whatever format AC3 comes in gets recorded (and also output through the optical output connector). The recording format is AVCHD, which can be used to burn Blu-ray compatible DVD disks. Two hours of HD recordings, recorded at 5 Mbits/sec, can be burnt onto a standard 4.7 GByte DVD-R or DVD-RW disk for playback on a Blu-ray DVD player.
