Is This Possible - HDMI Cable TV to Laptop
Is it possible to record an HDMI input from a (comcast) cable box onto a laptop, via HDMI cable? (Without using TV tuner / Capture card?)
If yes, what software would this require?
Essentially I want my laptops HDD to act as a DVR. I understand that laptops picture is being pulled as an output, so does the laptops HDMI port accept input?
It is an Newegg.com - lenovo IdeaPad Y550P(324156U) NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD±R/RW NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M

Try calling Comcast, or checking your system information manual. I have Dish Network, and they do support this, though its not through a HDMI cable, it's through a USB.
But, most-likely, it doesn't allow you to record onto the HDD, but transfer recorded content already on your DVR onto your HDD, thats how it is with mine atleast.
Rik55 is right - the HDMI port on a laptop is HDMI(video, possibly sound) out only. Not in.
