I'm trying to record iPad footage, so I can do a walkthrough for Nancy Drew: Codes and Clues when it comes out.
So I bought a Lightning HDMI Adaptor, something which connects the iPad to a TV. This works perfectly. Whatever is on the iPad screen shows up on the TV screen. The daughter loves this.
I figured that I could then record the iPad footage, the same way I record videogame footage. My videogame recorder is the Hauppauge PVR. Maybe you've seen me use it for the Zelda Gamecube games or Barbie Detective #1. But for some reason, this doesn't seem to work! I get the machine set up the right way (I think), and all it gets is a blank screen!
Do any of you readers have suggestions as to how I can fix this problem?
The Internet suggests that some HDTVs auto-block video output when there's an HDMI input, as a copyright protection measure. The Internet also suggests that I use a Hauppauge PVR 2, which has HDMI input, but I don't want to drop $150 on a device which more or less does the same thing as the one I already have.
