I would like to get a HDMI video/audio capture board which is supported under Linux.

What I would like to do is to capture data from a cable-TV decoder (which has a HDMI output) and stream it out on my LAN so that it can be watched on XBMC clients, or at least using mplayer or similar.

Any suggestions for such a board and driver/software?

As an aside, if the cable-TV decoder has HDCP, are there any HDCP decoders? I suspect these would be very low key and quite illegal... or at least the media industry sure wants them to be...

The signal does not seem to be HDCP decoded out of the decoder. I can still watch TV even if HDCP is disabled. However, it could be that future channels might be HDCP encoded so you have a very good point.

Another option would be to use some device which will transport the HDMI data over ethernet and assemble it back HDMI so I can use the HDCP decoder in the TV. This would of course be a perfect task for a HTPC given the right hardware. Does such a card exists?

You could use a hdfury and connect it to a Hauppauge HDPVR
That would do HDMI -> Component -> V4LV2 capture device
It says it even supports HDCP decode

You would then stream that out again using vlc

Never tried the hdfury but I use a HDPVR as a capture device off a cable box all the time

The Colossus http://www.hauppauge.com/site/webstore2/webstore_colossus.asp?product=colossus seem to be what I was looking for, but what is hdfury?
