I was wondering if this set up would break HDCP laws.
A PS3 with YPbPr (composite) cables going into a Avermedia Game capture HD. Then the ouput from the Avermedia into a composite to HDMI converter (I.E: NEET etc) Then a HMDI cable into a HDMI port on a T230H monitor.
Does this break any laws because someone said it breaks HDCP laws. If it does how does it break them.

have you seen the sheer amount of gameplay vids on Youtube? i think that answers the bulk of your question, only thing to be aware of is someone might object to being filmed usually out of spite so try not to mention you're recording if you're playing with strangers. Other than that you're fine and if not the authorities will be in touch lol i'm sure allot of people reacord in the same way as you do, just don't spread it around that you're doing it this way ;)
Next time someone says something breaks the law ask how, in general if they don't know be sceptical and come here to ask like the rest of us (^ ^,)

then as i say you're fine, i'm sure allot of other people record in the same way as you but like i say just don't broadcast the exact way you record just in case. I'm wanting to start a channel for gaming as well but won't start until the summer when i have the set up i'll want for it. If you decide you want to do recordings on the PC use Frapz or Snapz Pro if you're an Apple user, they're good programs for recording gameplay that are easy to use. Just be sure to get a large external hard drive as to record in good quality uses up allot of space. Also a good headset to get is the Creative Tactic 3D Omega, they work with PS3, 360, PC & Mac and are very well made so cost wise they work out great if you're doing cross platform gameplay & recordings. Hope this helps :)
